Jay used to dream about killing Christians and Jews in terror attacks around the world, but that all changed when he met Jesus. Jay grew up in a conservative Muslim family in Afghanistan. In 2001, when he was just 15-years-old, he fled to the UK to escape the fighting between US forces and the Taliban, the Christian Post reported. However, when he came to Britain, he found himself becoming gradually attracted to the same radical extremism he fled in Afghanistan.
