    I live with a extremely strict and religious muslim family. Every since last year I've been losing more and more faith in Islam and find it to be one of the worst ideologies / religions I have ever had the misfortune to face the realities of. If i ever told my family how I feel I'm 100% sure I would be in danger. I am too young to leave or find somewhere to stay and still in school so I'm trapped here. I came here to find other people like me and find advice on how to cope. I'm so grateful that there are organisations like this.

    I stumbled across this website today and must say how moved I am to hear all the testimonies of people suffering at the hands of a religion which has left many feeling scarred, jaded and isolated from their nearest and dearest.

    I have never been a Muslim - I was bought up a devout Jehovahs Witness from birth. Bought up to believe that the worlds end was coming and that I had to conform or die..... I was bought up in a physical and sexually abusive household and had no outside help because we were strictly told that 'worldly association' was not allowed.

    I fortunately was able to leave in my mid teens but bared the scars of my indoctrination for many years - going off the rails and had to find my own path.

    Life following breaking free from such indoctrination is hard and the outside world once breaking free can make you go a little crazy especially when being given such a liberty that you once never had. My advice to everyone that is considering leaving is to do your research, build up a network of friends..... Save some money, and take the leap only when you are secure... There is always a high probability that your family may shun your existence therefore getting a plan together is always necessary.

    If anyone ever needs to talk I will respond to all x

    I left Islam when I was 12. I'm now 23 years old and agnostic. Most of my friends are Muslim and I want to meet people who I can relate to more.

    , Battersea

    i was born in Pakistan with very strict Conservative Muslim family, i came here as asylum seeker at the age of 14, my step father use to beat me every time because of not praying, they always force me to do Muslim practice, and i had to do it because i was in fear that he might kill me. my mother bought me here because she no longer wanted to see me suffer science then i have been living alone in UK.

  6. Naheda ali

    , London.

    I've been brought up as a Muslim and all my life till 15 I followed my parents words and what they told me to. I also followed my cousins too and they are very religious. When I was 15 I realised that's not what I want. Even after what I went through I still believed in allab and my religion. Now I'm 18 and I've gone through so much. I don't think his helped or even been there for me at all. I don't have faith anymore. I have had enough of believing something that's not there. I want to move on and move forward with my life instead of being held down by whoever this Allah is. I think joining this society will help me realise more and help me clear my head. I am so strongly against this religion.

    I left Islam over a year ago and life has been a massive battle since. I would like to join the group as there is a need for this community.

    I have left Islam, this false religion. I appreciate some of the principles i.e. 2.5% charity, but on the grand scheme of things it's man made.
    I secretly hide this fact as it would no doubt leave me ostracised within my family circle as they are all completely delusional.
    I had my doubts many years ago and I'm glad there is an underground ex muslim (yes without uppercase M) movement. To death with religion!!
    I wish I could burn the quran and all other religious texts and have a barbecue with the fire.

    I'm glad that some of us have found a way out. Fu**ing cult that it is. I met so many delusional people over the years. However one fair point is that some people who are in extreme suffering i.e. third world countries, it does give hope to the many good people who don't wish to harm anyone. It's a shame that humanity in general is selfish but that is another issue.

    I am proud to be an atheist. I have lived in several muslim and christian countries and never really cared about religion. Recently I have started to become more aware of the harm that it does, especially with the savage terrorist attacks, rapes and violence of ISIS and therefore I have taken more of an interest in speaking out against it (all religion, not just islam). I am glad to see that many muslims in the UK are leaving the religion because this will enable them and their descendants to live peacefully with the rest of us. I want them to know that they are truly welcome and they are not alone.

  12. Mark Neil Fletcher

    , Basford, Stoke-on-Trent

    I converted to Islam at the end of last year with the best of intentions. As a homosexual with serious mental health problems, I knew it would be a big struggle for me to become a Muslim, but was up for the challenge and positive about it. I renounced Islam a couple of days ago. The experience of trying to repress my sexual thoughts and identity left me with sex on the brain all the time, wet dreams, self-hatred and suicidal ideation. Doing my best to be a good Muslim meant totally rejecting the gay friend I was living with and moving nearer to a mosque. Yesterday I moved back in with him and have ceased all contact with local Muslims. I found the experience of doing my best to learn how to pray "properly" and everything that goes with it a thoroughly joyless and irrational one. My contact at the mosque was trying to take over every aspect of my life. I attended the five daily prayers there for several weeks, a weekly ijtima and many other events. My conclusion is that practising Muslims are seriously deluded if not thoroughly bonkers. The CEMB is essential to look out for the interests and concerns of ex-Muslims and oppose a nutty and authoritarian belief system. Thanks for being there and providing a forum for apostates.

    i've been out of the folds of islam for a while. recently i let a few people know about this and i've been involved in heavy theological debates with them. so far i've won all arguements with logic and philosophy. these people are accepting in front of my face but the minute i turn my back they are calling me a kaffir. i can help others who want to engage in academic debates with muslims. i've extensive reaearch into hadith especially the 9 volumes of bukhari; i find many of them rathar farcical and almost child like. i've defeated imams too.throgh my logical distruction of this faith three people are now ex and one thiniking. i do fear for my life as i live in a somali majority area but i'm not of them. lately i have become more vocal and confident and am engaging in debates all the time. i may have to leave this area soon or even the country altogether. i've told that i could be the next salman rushdie if i put everything i know on pen and paper. my written engllish could do with some help as i'm more words than paper. my family are aware of me as a very liberal person when it comes to religion and politically i'm on the left of the left (it it exists any more)

    , North West, UK

    I was brought up as a muslim, made to wear a scarf and pray from the age of 5 and fast from 8ish. All through my childhood and teenage years teachings were enforced with verbal, physical and mental abuse.

    I am now an ex-muslim and have never been happier. I feel like joining a community like this to be able to talk about things with people who've had to go through experiences.

  17. Anam


    I was raised as a muslim but very liberally as my parents were not strict muslims. I always questioned Islam from a very young age and I can honestly say I was never able to identify with Islam. I am so happy there are others like me as I have felt like the only one.

    , Birmingham

    I was revert for 8years. After first of big love to Islam and very deep indoctrination I was sure that's my way t,that's truth. I was manipulate and indoctrineate. Muslim society very was starting making pressure that I should marry and made me feel incimpleate as single. That was sometines humealiating but I get arranged with brother if my friend. Making LNG story short that was hell. ...and everything was in name of Islam. Orfull was that that it was based in Islam. Even before I started have doubd . I understood a lot of things . what is said outside to non Muslim and what is inside told. I understood how unrealistic is this concept. At least for me. I want raise my sons in respect and as open mindet people who have a lot of empathy . So that's why I want to be never of your organisation
