Islamic communities contain ‘tsunamis of atheism’ that are being suppressed, says leading ex-Muslim

Documentary exposes ‘silent challenges’ facing those who abandon their Muslim faith

Thousands of ex-Muslims in Britain are living in fear of violent revenge for abandoning the Islamic faith while others are afraid to admit they no longer believe, a support group for ex-Muslims has said.

Maryam Namazie, founder of the Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain, described a “tsunami of atheism” in Muslim communities and urged that more needs to be done to recognise the dangers often faced by those who choose to renounce their faith.

    Not gonna happen. Politicians are cowed by the fanatics.

    The tsunami has started, totally agree. Nominalism in Islam is strong because not only does Islam’s theology leave much to be desired, but it’s book comes apart with even the slightest, cursory investigation. Throw in the size of it relative to even just the NT let alone the Bible or Tonach and Islam can and will collapse upon itself.

    Western ideas act on Islam like water on the wicked witch.

    When a sarcastic tweet or facebook post can lead the overzealous Police to your door, because of laws pushed for by the muslim community and passed by spineless vote whores, that’s sadly, a battle you might have to fight for yourself for a while, Ms Namazie.

    Just because you don’t believe in Allah doesn’t necessarily mean you are an atheist.
