What’s also particularly galling is the fact that Namazi is a died in the wool marxist and anti-Israel kook.
And no, we do not want to see her naked on the streets of any city ever again. I bring this all up to highlight the fact of ”who’s who”, while they might get somethings right, there’s a lot of other things they get disastrously wrong.
Young Muslims who quit the faith ‘live in fear of violent revenge’: Support group says some have been warned they will be killed if they abandon their religion
- A support group said young Muslims who abandon their faith face abuse
- The Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain said some are frightened to speak out
- One former Muslim was warned by her mother that she would be killed
Council of Ex-Muslims leader Maryam Namazie said ‘there is nothing more intolerant than religion’
Young Muslims who abandon their faith face violent retaliation and abuse from their families, a support group said yesterday.
The Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain said those born into the religion are often frightened of speaking out – and those that do are in danger of attack.
It said one former Muslim said she was warned by her mother that she would be killed if she said she no longer believed in Allah.
The concern over the risk of reprisals against apostates – those who renounce their religion – was made public at a time of deepening scrutiny of the behaviour of some Islamic communities and institutions.
The risks to Muslims who abandon their religion were set out by former believers and campaigners in an ITV documentary to be broadcast on October 13.
Council of Ex-Muslims leader Maryam Namazie told the makers of the film, Exposure: Islam’s Non-Believers: ‘They see us trouble-makers, deviants, apostates and blasphemers. There is nothing, nothing, more intolerant than religion.’
One former Muslim, who identified herself only as Sadia, told the documentary makers: ‘I remember saying to my mum, I don’t believe in God any more. And her saying, ‘you can’t tell anybody else because they’ll kill you, we are obliged to kill ex-Muslims’.
‘And that it would put me at extreme risk if anybody else was to find out, so that conversation ended there.’
