I come from a very religious family. My siblings and I were sent to religious schools since the very early years of your childhood. I managed to memorise the Quran by the age of 16 and many Hadiths alongside.

I an an ex muslim who thanks to my current partner, was able to pick up the courage and voice my views. However, since my coming out about.being an athiest, i have recieved criticism from nearly every muslim i know. My mum, 3 younger brothers, a few cousins and one my mum's sisters' are completely fine with me and understand that religion is a personal choice. However, the rest of the family have "disowned" me. I'm not allowed to step foot in my grandparents' house and i've been called "evil" because of my views. It's been about a year now, and family members are still just as cold towards me as they were near the beginning of all this. Some family members haven't accepted the reality of things and still lecture me about praying because i've "lost my way". The last time i saw my grandmother she said "pray your kalimas and forget about everything else and all will be fine". Because i rejected to comply, she said me and her "finished", along with using my grandfathers' death (from just over 2 years ago) to manipulate me. I recieve emotional blackmail on a regular basis. I think the thing that hurt me most was "we are ashamed of you". I hate that although other members of my so called family have done humiliating things way worse than leaving the religion, i get blasted because i'm a female; it's unfair and wrong! "Family" does not judge you and kick you out of their lives because you have different beliefs... Family is supposed to be there for you no matter what and love you unconditionally, no?

I am an ex muslim. I criticize Islam on my facebook account. Thats why I got threats all the time. Also I have been attacked by the extremist once. Even I got threat by my wife though we are separated now. I feel lonely and fear, everyone hated me. Thats why joining with you to share myself.

I have been aware fo this organization for a few years and actually have talked to the team online who runs the Twitter account. I still, even after all these years, firmly believe that Islam and the cultures that surround it are not for me. In fact, it is the culture around Islam and the pressures from Islam that have contributed to why it is difficult to recover from (diagnosed) Borderline Personality Disorder and PTSD from rape at 17. I am currently a university student studying Politics and International Relations and hope to contribute towards progressive politics that include the lives of apostates. I aim, through my membership in the CEMB, to meet like-minded people to become friends with and share experiences.

I have been an ex Muslim for a year. The reason I converted was because I always hated Asian culture and thought religion was perfect but we do it wrong. Then I realised that religion made our culture this horrible and is so anti feminist. I would like to meet more ex muslims because I feel alone in this sometimes and it is sad to feel a loss. With increasing my knowledge and meeting more ex muslims, I hope to get stronger and help others.

من اینجا بس دلم تنگ است
اینجا من را چون زندانی خوفناک است، که غذایش درد و آبش رنج است.

I am living in London for 7 years. I was grown in cultural family back home Bangladesh. I have been writing about religious and political on my Facebook and some other blog in Bengali and English. When I starred criticising Islam with the reference some of my Muslim friends abused me. I had to given up relation with them. Moreover I received death threat from Muslim.They don't want to debate. Intolerance is the main charecteristic of Islam and it failed to exist with other religion. I left Islam two years ago. Now I am free in my thinking and have rational mind to all human.

I find Islam to be a satanic evil and uncomfortable religion and I want to find some ways of leaving the religion one day and I want to experience a free life style of no religion.

Please include a statement as to why you want to join and the significance of the organisation for you. Any background information would be useful.
I was brought up in a Christian environment, I attended Sunday school etc. However as I got older and through education, especially science I understood that there could be no God. The more I learnt the clearer this revelation became, it is clear that all religions are man made intended as a device to control and to me have no place in an intelligent society. It was easy for me to say to family and friends I am an atheist, I had little in the way of rebuke and certainly no death threats. I'm appalled, shocked and saddened that ex Muslims cannot so easily take this same route without actual fear for their lives. we need to do more to help everyone who chooses to live without oppression of religion.

i am 29 years old ,i was ex muslim praying and reading curan every single day for many years .i start looking for the truth since i was 16 or 17 years old .i was always say is that true ? That there is a god punish us for mistakes ? if the god is great and have every thing ,so what is the purpes of creat eart in an illimited univer and creat peaple to pray for him ,by the time i looking for the ressourses and true stories about mohammad and the islamic history ,and i find that this is not what we learn in school ,its completly deferent ,they teached us that mohammad is somme one higher than every thing else on the planet ,the true story is defferent ,i knew that mohammad was doing sex with slaves women ,and make it halal in the curan ,he take the wife from his adopted sone and curan said that too ,curan say that every one on eart who not believe in mohammad message should killed ,if that was in the curan from the beginning ,so daach is not using the curan in the wrong way ,this is the true face of islam ,i totally refuse the curan and mohammad and islam and every religion on earth,that was a small exemple why i refuse religion .i decide to enjoy this council to tell my opinions and share the point of view with other people like me ,because to be atheist in algeria or any islamic country that means death ,i keep it in my heart , i hope to talke with any one else like me .

I've never felt so free until I chose to be an ex-muslim. Knocking those invisible walls down comes with its own set of challenges and being a part of CEMB gives me the confidence to stand up to those who try to bring me down.

Hi , my name is Asayel and I'm 18 years old, i was an ex-Muslim sense high school, I studied at the Community school and I got a really great Degrees , in that age all what I want was going to the law college, but my parents won't let me saying that I'm going to get married as soon a I graduate from high school, at first i refused that, then my father threatened me that he can kill me whenever he wants and no one gonna ask him for an Explanation , cause as he said "the religion and my country laws are with him " and after weeks from crying and begging him to at least letting me continue my study, he said: you can go to a community college but you will lose your phone and you will have to wear a "abaya " and it's what old ladies wear. My parents are really strict with their religion, sometimes when I have questions about islam ,they Force me to stop asking saying that if I'm not a Muslim they can kill me to avoid the shame, I don't have any friends because I'm not allowed to have any. I really hate it here and sometimes I think if everyone else here have the same situation why they aren't doing anything about it. for the last few months, all what I was thinking about is that I wanna do something useful for the environment and help people around the world.

I am an ex Muslim from Morocco...My family are very conservative Muslims...I created my arabic, anti-religious blog 19 months ago...I wrote more than 70 long articles and many other short ones...Since I live in a state where religious criticism is criminalised by law, I find that joining your "fortified" council would help me psychologically to continue the emancipational journey of 1000 miles...

I am an British born Iranian and my family are religious Shia Muslims. I have told my mum and she told me to keep quiet. I left the religion at the end of 2015 but I have been struggling to come out. I am afraid that I will be bullied back into it and I don't want to risk my safety or the safety of my family when we go to Iran. I have been encouraged, by my atheist friends to speak up for the ex Muslims who are isolated and scared like myself. I feel that joining the Council of Ex-Muslims would be the best way to do this.
