CHRISTIANS must make themselves seen and heard, a Huddersfield man told a gathering at the House of Lords.

The call came from Yaqub Masih, the general secretary of the UK Asian Christian Fellowship.

He told an Easter party staged by his organisation that Christians should proclaim their faith.

Mr Masih added: "Many communities actively promote their faith, but Christians live in fear. Christianity is mocked and attacked by the media. Christ is not preached effectively."
