On Friday evening, Tajamal Amar received a broken nose and several deep cuts to his head outside a restaurant and was unconscious for six hours.
He woke up in Royal Derby Hospital after being transported there by emergency services.
The 45 year old delivery driver had two poppies on his car and a cross hanging from the rear-view mirror, which he thinks provoked the attack.
Mr Amar remembers being stared at by a group of Muslim men.
He told the British Pakistani Christian Association: “On the day of my attack the visible display of a cross in my car and two poppies just below the front bonnet triggered the violence against me. I know this because for a few days before the attack the same men glared at me after they noticed my Christian paraphernalia.”
He added that it was not the first time his family had received unwelcome attention.
He said: “Several times local Pakistani people in Derby have taken offence from the fact that I am Christian, when they first find out many stop talking to me. My wife and I have often been shunned.”
Police are currently concerned about his safety and are patrolling outside his house as well as recommending that he move.
No one has yet been arrested and the motive of the attack is not known.
Anyone who saw the attack or who could help the police with their inquiries should call 101 quoting reference 17000454535.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
