Mr Hussain has said his family has been living in fear since they appeared in a Channel 4 documentary about the mistreatment of Muslim converts in 2008.
He claims they have been subjected to a tirade of abuse and threats to their lives, as well as thousands of pounds worth of physical damage to their home and cars.
Mr Hussain has also previously been attacked in the street before and has accused the police of failing to help him and his family.
Police have been called out on a number of occasions over the years but this is the first time they have classed an incident a religious hate crime.
The family moved to their current address after experiencing problems at their previous home in Bradford, where they claimed they were driven out by some Muslim residents.
