Hidayat husain naqvi, India
I am a Muslim by birth.I live in India.I don't like Islam anymore.I hate Islamic festival of eid ul azha.innocent animals brutually slaughter in name of Allah.Islamic views of women is barbaric.
Nothing a single good thing I found in Islam.
Well, the reason for joning this group is to find out the people of same mentality who have given up the faith of Islam. And to share our same ideology together and spreading the real truth about Islam. I am originally a Bangladeshi and currently studying in Germany. another for my joining in this group is that, the way islamist are killing ex muslims and who speaks against islam, it is better for me to leave a footprint here, so that if something happens, people would know why. although I#m not the kind of a guy who writes blogs and all, but sometimes I do get into debate in social media
I'm a 25 years old Iranian student. I decided to comprehend Islam basically. when I started to read books about this religion, I became interested in human thoughts like philosophy and logic which guided me to scientific thinking. Now I don't believe in god or any metaphysics in popular culture. A few years ago I asked questions about what was happening around me and tried to answer them with logic and philosophy.

Badal Mamun, London
My name is Badal Mamun, I'm 25 years old and just got graduated from University of Greenwich. I was born and raised in a Muslim family in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Growing up as a teenage in muslim household like any of my cousins I used to have a bad reputation of asking unusual questions.
It took me quite a while though to come out of belief. There was (still is) very little resouses that can support a free thinkers mind, for example a monthly science magazine was unsubscribed from the school library by the principal because it used to publish articles about aliens. Although Unnecessary religious and family customs and wide range of religious superstition helped me a lot to make my mind. Later on I come across some of the most remarkable work by Banhali freethinkes like Aruj Ali Matabbur, Dr Humayum Azad, Toslima Nasrin....
As a student of science I've been with reason and justice all my life, I take it as a responsibility to aware people about irrationality and superstitions. I am a active bolger in most popular bangli blog named "same where in blog" I'm contineously trying to reflect my thoughts about religion, science and society through by writing. Which can be very risky becouse of the social and political situation in Bangladesh.

Milad, Frankfurt, Germany
I used to be a moderate muslim, but with studying science (up to the PhD level) and see how religion can be in conflict with some modern scientific approaches as well as the human rights, I turned to be an atheist.
I wish I could help people to refer to their religious belief and rethink about them by logic not by faith. I also wish I could publish my articles on this website.
for 13 years being atheist has been harder and harder in turkey.
we need to unite and know the people who can help each other in this respect.
I'm a 13 year old girl, and I've decided to leave Islam forever. I know it's a young age, but my uncle is an atheist and I got my inspiration from him. I come from a very free Muslim family. No one in my family wears hijab, wears burka, or have any hard thoughts on women or girls. I am the eldest of my family and I have a younger brother. We're both treated very fairly. I moved abroad when I was 7 and returned back to Bangladesh when I was 12, because my father died in a heart attack.
After moving back to Bangladesh, my grandparents both moved in with us too. My uncle lived with us too (now gone abroad) and he pointed out parts in the Quran that were ridiculous. Such as the fact that Muhammed married Aisha at the age of 6, verses saying to kill non-believers so Islam could rule, and worst of all, the Sharia Law. There are lot's of contradictions too. I don't think they teach this stuff at Madrasa. I don't think the teachers mention these things all. I don't detest Muslim people. I actually pity them. They have a blindfold on. I wonder how many people even properly read what is in that holy book. Ever since I was young, I always wondered: Why is it mostly Muslim countries that are violent? Why are women in Muslim countries so discriminated? I think I know the answer.
The hard thing is i'm only 13. If I ever say these things to my family they'll probably just laugh it off. I don't fit in at school where everyone is close-minded. I don't have friends, actual friends I trust. I feel like I don't fit in anywhere. In my country, atheist bloggers are being assassinated for speaking their minds, for saying the truth. That's why I want to join this organization. To feel at home. To speak my mind. To make a difference.
A lot of Muslims would say my father wouldn't want this, but I know one thing: my father would want his daughter to a free, intelligent, good, person.

i was born and grew up as a muslim .i have always found islam unjust that's what pushs me to renouce on islam and keep it in secret.
I grew up in a religion of intolerance and I gave up on that. I seek a place where there is a sense of belonging
Assassinated Voice, Bangladesh
No I did not come off a Muslim family. My atheistic belief hurled off a religious- minority background while I live in Bangladesh. My country is a Muslim-majority country where for the last couple of years it has become very difficult for the atheists and non-believers to express their voice due to uprising of the religious fundamentalists. During last 4 months four bloggers were hacked to death only for writing in the blog. The government as well is not so willing to continue the judgement for they want to to keep their Muslim vote bank intact or even strengthen it. The atheist bloggers in Bangladesh are reality in great danger. In this situation we feel earnest necessity of international solidarity to stand by the Bangladeshi freethinkers and vice versa. I came to know about this site from my fellow blogggers and now have decided to join with you.
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 just want to know am not the only One and just talk to people who feel the same way
Fahad Khan, Qatar
I was a convert to Islam for several years. I really strongly believed that Islam was the right path and felt spiritually enlightened through Islam. It was only recently that I started to question the fundamental tenets of the faith. I realised that Islam does not stand up to scrutiny morally, thologically or scientifically. Islam is in reality backward and rotten to the core, a seventh century desert tribal ideology that has no place in the twenty first century.
Some racists and right wing activists wrongly accuse Muslims of trying to take over society and of practicing 'taqiyyah' to lie about their beliefs. I think in reality the tragic situation is that Muslims lie or try to hide their own beliefs because they are ashamed of them as any descent human being would be. Muslims are good people and I hope that more of them start to realise that they themselves have better morals and values than the sick ideology that they have the misfortune of being attached to. I hope that muslims leave Islam and choose humanity. Muslims deserve better!
Rob Lentink, The Netherlands
This is a cause I very much support!
I am 54 yo and I was a muslim. I left islam when I was 15, but actually I was never a "good" muslim, I never prayed and I read the quran only when I was at school. Of course I never told anyone in Saudi Arabia because I was afraid. When we finaly left to Europe I felt much safer and I started to show a little more of my new religion. I became a christian (again not a good one) when I was 21 and I decided to tell my family as soo as I finished univercity and found a job. My parents were almost ok with it because they too were not religious. When I was a child I was told to hate non muslims especially the polytheists, atheists and jews. I could not understand why and once when I asked my teacher the reason sying that I did not agree, he slept me on the face and told me that I should not ask question about islam. I should only do what islam says. This same teacher and others used to force me into sex since the age of 7. I was never a very maculine boy and in fact today (and always) I am a gay. I was used so many times by my teachers, students and other men that for many times I did not want to go to school nor out in the streets. Now I don't hate islam, but I could never ever never go back to it. When I go to muslim coutries I must tell them that I am a muslim and I sometimes go pray with my friends, but I can't even remember how to do it well.
