I receive emails from terrified Muslims and former Muslims like this one all the time. They are heartbreaking. The plight of ex-Muslims is a human rights issue of monumental proportions, but no one gives it the slightest attention. These people have been abandoned to their fate by all the global “human rights” organizations. Worse still, they are defamed, libeled and mocked by the left in the rare instance that the story comes to the fore.
Freed Muslims (apostates) should be given emergency asylum in the West.
My name is [redacted], I’m [xx] years old, I was born to an [Muslim country] father and [second Muslim country] mother, I live now in [Muslim country] since my father passed away.
I started leaving Islam approximately when I was 18 and completely made my decision and was sure about it when I was 19, I read the Qur’an and hadith for real for the first time and discovered the amount of inconsistency, arbitrary and hatred in them.
Leaving Islam was hard for me, but what was even harder is to live in a Muslim country as an ex-Muslim, at first I thought this is an open-minded country related to other Muslim countries but what I found out was completely different, I got cursed, friends left me, I was persecuted and I even was death-threatened two times. Once by a mutual friend who literally told me “If I wouldn’t go to jail, I would behead you myself” and two of my friends stood there and said nothing, and once by a stranger who lives in my small town, a lot of people came to me asking me for my belief and whether I’m a Muslim or not after they saw a couple posts on Facebook that even wasn’t that clear to be talking about religion! I started writing online for a scientific magazine called “[redacted]” about the theory of evolution and people cursed me and threatened me and one of my neighbors came to discuss it with me and I was scared to speak my mind because of what would happen if more people known that I’m not a Muslim.
My mother questioned me a lot and I think she started to realise that from my behaviour even though I try my best not to show it but I guess it’s hard to hide.
I lost my friend like one month ago after he attempted suicide, ever since then and I’m having suicidal thoughts, I don’t go out that much since I left Islam, just for important things, I’m keeping a distance since all my neighbours are bearded and extremists, I fear for my life, I’d rather take my own life if I had to be tortured to death as it happened to other people from my country or others in this region.
I even read the [Muslim country] penal code as an act of desperation and found that there are many sections concerning freedom of speech, leaving Islam, criticizing Islam or the prophet as a crime! and many writers and people were put in jail for that and you can easily find the info on human rights report on [Muslim country] the recent years.
I’m sincerely sorry for taking that much of your time, but just know that if I really didn’t need help I wouldn’t ask for it, I could just pay for college or get a visa to work abroad but I cannot afford it, and I cannot afford going back here because it would cost me my life, or freedom, all I’m asking you is advice or help in any sort, how can I leave this country to the US or any other country where I can be safe and not persecuted for who I’m so that i can start a new life that isn’t inhuman? I thought about leaving for any EU country or North American once to apply for asylum, but what if I was denied from that right?
Please help me with any information or organization that you know, I’m just a fellow human in need.
Note that I’m willing to provide all my information and prove my identity in case you doubt that this is a prank or a scam, I know there are a lot of them out there.
