You are invited to join the Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain (CEMB) on International Apostasy Day to defend freedom of expression and the right to apostasy and blasphemy by subverting religious texts.

Whilst we might not agree with burning Qurans and books (usually associated with a long history of state and religious censorship against dissent), we nonetheless recognise the right of individuals to express their abhorrence to bad ideas and the persecution and murder of freethinkers and apostates.

On Apostasy Day, join us in celebrating blasphemy and apostasy as rights by subverting and doodling on the Quran, Bible, Torah, the Vedas or any other religious texts to proclaim:

Ideas are not sacred, human beings are.

It is important to reiterate that burning, murdering, torturing, persecuting human beings are violence and hate, not burning the Quran or religious texts.

Tag CEMB with your videos or photos subverting religious texts and publish them online using the hashtags: #ApostasyDay #ApostasyDayDoodles.

See an example of Maryam Namazie’s doodling the Quran for some ideas on what you can do.

CEMB’s next meet up will be a doodling session in preparation for Apostasy Day.
