United Kingdom--The head of a Coventry family of albino Muslims has pleaded for an end to a campaign of “honour” harassment which began after his daughter married outside the faith.
The Parvez-Akhtar family, of Edgwick, has been subjected to vicious attacks because eldest daughter Naseem wed a Christian.
House windows have been smashed, their cars vandalised and they receive constant hate mail.
Aslam Parvez, aged 53, blames members of the Muslim community who believe the family have been dishonoured by his daughter’s marriage.
He contacted the Telegraph to issue a public appeal in a desperate bid to make the culprits stop.
“We’re a good family and have done nothing wrong yet we’re being punished in the name of honour,” he said.
The hate campaign started five months ago when a national magazine published an article on albinos which featured Naseem, who no longer lives in Coventry and has little contact with her family.
It revealed how she has married a Christian, goes to church and is expecting her second child with her husband.
Mr Parvez says copies of the article were quickly spread maliciously, and were posted on walls near their house and through the doors of Muslim homes in the community.
Mr Parvez says he has received numerous death threats and has spent hundreds of pounds installing security cameras around his house. (Read more.)

Muslim Family Targeted by Muslims after Daughter Marries Christian . . . in the U.K.
But we should remember that there are no differences between Muslim culture and Western culture, and that Anders Behring Breivik was not a Muslim.
