HONG KONG, CHINA (Worthy News)– He was tortured for his Christian faith, but still wanted to “sing the songs of David.” He was naked, but “Jesus Christ” clothed him “with His Love.” Words of Christian rights activist William Nicholas Gomes, a former Muslim who fled rough police and Islamic extremists in his native Bangladesh.
Speaking to BosNewsLife, the 27-year-old Gomes confirmed Thursday, August 25, that he now lives in Hong Kong. “I have received a visa for six months.”
But the young man, who stays in a crowded hostel on the Chinese island territory, misses his young wife Annie Jhumur Halder and two small sons, Felix Eugene and Lalon Mark.
“I am afraid that Muslim fundamentalists will do something bad to her and kill my young sons. They already attacked our house,” he added in an extensive interview with BosNewsLife. “I am not allowed to bring them to Hong Kong, because my wife is a housewife without the ‘right’ qualifications.”
