Mohammad Naeem, Islamabad, Pakistan
I am Mohammad Naeem from Pakistan. I am a 27 years old boy with two master degrees: one in English Literature and other in Islamic Studies. My deep study of Quran (holy book of Muslims) revealed the facts and eventually I am an ex-Muslim now. But presently I am facing serious security threat and living in a very miserable condition. My parents kicked me out. Can you help me to have a freedom of speech, so that I can express my ideas to be the part of change. I am a motivated humanist and feminist in Pakistan but currently facing a serious type of threat to my life. I will be waiting for your response. Thank you

Dear ex muslims ,
My name is Paolo and I currently live in Belgium . I was raised as a christian catholic and took all the sacraments . After reading the bible in my teen ages I became an atheist and engaged in informal conversations and debates with followers of all faiths . Especially after the terrorists attacks in Belgium I started reading with the utmost care possible the very sources of islam and found them to be at least as shocking as the sources of christianity . I have the chance to have many muslim friends and I am looking for the best possible way to inform my self and have a critical debate with them on the subject of islam. I also am considering to start a university course of studies on Islam which I regard as a doctrine in sheer conflict with the universal declaration of human rights . I would also like to reach out to ex muslim organizations here in Belgium and support them in any possible non violent and critical way. I thank you in advance for any information you could provide me on the fields I have just mentioned. Keep up with the good work.
I grew up constantly questioning religious teachings, but it was more motivated by a desire to understand Islam that I thought was unworthy of all the hate it gets. I worked more towards strengthening my faith, and it is only recently that my state of mind shifted; the more I dived into it, the further I got away from it. My researches made me face all the inconsistencies that religion entrenched in me, and when I widened my perspective and genuinely tried to understand the counter arguments I was presented with, instead of stubbornly avoid them, fearing I'd loose my faith, I eventually reached a point of no return; I realized I wasn't and couldn't be a Muslim anymore
That being said, I'm moving to Wales next year, and I'm planning to join the CEMB community. I'd be more than happy to meet other ex-Muslims!

I am from Saudi Arabia (I'm only staying in the UK to study) so I can never talk to anyone -in person- who has the same beliefs as I do.

i just want to meet and relate with ex Muslims
I dont live in England, but I want to join because I need something like an online community. A few of my friends are ex-muslims as well but I want to connect with more people. Also we cant exactly form a community where I live. Our families dont know and it wouldnt be socially acceptable. ( I live in the Middle East). I always found Islam quite difficult to identify with. I tried a lot, but I found the myths ridiculous even from a young age, and as I got older I noticed how problematic the whole religion is. Often in dangerously subtle ways. Im now athiest and very relieved to stop feeling guilty and pressured to believe in Islam.

I have thought and thought for several months now and have come to the conclusion that adults believe in Santa too, they call him God.
Closet ex-muslim, scared of coming out because of it may get me killed; Tired of hiding because its killing me each day.
I want to meet other people that are like me, so I don't feel all alone.
My name is Mohammad Sharifi. I was born in 23/10/1986 in Sarpol-e Zhab, Iran. The number of my national identity card is 336-9955954. I am an atheist. My unbelief has its roots in my knowledge of Islam and other faiths. Our ancestors in Old Persia accepted Islam just because of fear and torture and the governors of today's Iran are still imposing their faith by these means. In the modern world, compulsive confessions have no validity, while in my country they are widely used against the dissidents. I detest Islam because of the things I have seen from Islamists such as Khomeyni, Kalkhali, Jannati, Ahmadinezhad, Taliban, and ISIS.There is no truth in Islam and it is imposed on people by terror and mass murder. I hate Islam, because its proponents are slave dealers, and misogynists like Mohammad, Ali, Omar and Caliphs.I was born in a Muslim country, and now that I am in a free country I want to denounce this religion openly. I hope to live the rest of my life as a free man, although Mullahs and Islam wasted my past.
Ali Farhadian, Germany, Berlin
I'm here because I am fed up with the Islam,
I think I act just as a normal person and no reason to explain why I am an atheist,
I never believed in Islam and it's such a shame for me to be called ex-Muslim.
All the religion are weird though Islam is the worst,
especially with regards women, the veil and gender apartheid and circumcision freak the hell out of me.

I am an Ex-Muslim and I want to know about Atheism.
I have been a muslim for 19 years, and became an agnostic after a phase of questioning everything. I do not know why I'm here. I cannot come out as non-muslim and most of my friends are muslims. so yeah I hope to find something I can relate to here.
