Hartley Road where the attack took place

An Afghan Muslim man in Nottingham, England, has been sentenced to jail for attacking another Afghan who had converted from Islam to Christianity.

Nottingham Crown Court heard that the victim, who was also part of the Afghan community, had converted from Islam to Christianity after claiming asylum in the UK. “This did not sit well with the defendant,” said prosecutor Paul Stimson, adding, “That culminated in the assault in October last year in Hartley Road”. Ahmadzai did not admit any cultural or religious motivation, but admitted causing actual harm and a separate offence of arson. He has been sentenced to 12 months for the assault.

Sher Ahmadzai hit the victim, who was known to him, with a metre-long plank of wood in a street in Radford. Another man then started punching and kicking the fallen man in the face.
