    I'm inclined to see the early believers as evolving gradually from some kind of Christian sect towards an identity as a distinct religion over the course of the seventh century. I'd say the Jewish influences are secondary. I think Segovia sees any expl...

In defence of Islam’s Non Believers

We, the undersigned, are appalled at the discrimination, abuse and violence faced by ex-Muslims both in Britain and internationally (as seen in a new film, Islam's Non-Believers). Needless to say, it is not an insult to Islam or any religion, if one becomes an atheist - either in public or private. It is exercising a [...]

Blaming the Victims: Islam’s Non Believers

By Marieme Helie Lucas (Algerian sociologist) Reposted from SIAWI Also available in French.

“I remember saying to my mum, ‘I don’t think I 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.” – [...]

Islam’s Non Believers

islamsnonbelievers-notalone Islam's Non Believers, a new film by the award-winning film-maker Deeyah Khan, will be aired on 13 October 2016 on ITV Exposure at 10:40-11:40pm London time. The film is the first in depth documentary following the Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain and investigating the lives of young women and men in Britain who face threats, ostracisation, discrimination and even violence for leaving Islam. It also highlights the heinous violence faced by ex-Muslims in countries under Islamic rules (including the death penalty in 13 countries); draws attention to the role respected "community leaders" play in encouraging discrimination and violence; and makes important links between the transnational Islamist movement in Britain and internationally. Moreover, the film reveals the extent of non believers amongst Muslims and the international nature of the ex-Muslim resistance movement.
