UKJames McQuillanSwindon

I have been a western Atheist for over a decade now. As a Journalist of 1 year and direct witness to the theocracy of Islam in Saudi Arabia, a keen reader of Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Christopher Hitchens among many others. I find I must use my curiosity, writing and debating skills for a cause like this. I am compelled to give a platform to this very at risk population; so under-represented and so under attack.

UKGerion CasselLondon

I want to find out the truth for myself or at the very least come to some type of conclusion. I have been Muslim my entire life and have studied what I could of Islamic doctrine and theology as well as Sufism. I've realised this is unsatisfactory to me and seek more knowledge and understanding through rational, logical, philosophical and scientific debate.

UKChristian ColeLondon

Having been brought up and educated as a Catholic I renounced my faith 10 years ago and since I have been a strong advocate for secularism and open debate within religious groups about the belief systems entrenched in those communities.

I believe that in the UK we have allowed fear of intolerance and fear of offending people to override our duty to protect and offer equal rights to all citizens, no matter the religion or ideology of their home community. Not just in the British Muslim community, but in fact in all religious communities in the UK, entrenched belief systems are not challenged thoroughly enough and as a result people suffer injustices and in many cases abuse that otherwise would not be tolerated outside of a religious setting.

I strongly support the idea of giving a stronger voice moderate British Muslims and having a more open dialogue about religious ideology and why it can be harmful to a cohesive and secular society.

UKFardin ESFANDIARINewcastle Upon Tyne

To whom it may concern,

I am a first generation immigrant from the Islamic Republic of Iran. I was raised secular at home but attended school where Shia Islam was the enforced ideology, I consider my knowledge of that particular part of the islamic world as interesting and hope to implement it in the effort to spread the ideas that are integral to western civilisation. Freedom of speech, expression and the criticism of ideas are some of the cornerstones of my private study of philosophy and I aim to help anyone I can in finding freedom from religious oppression. I study Physics at university and aim to become an academic.

With gratitude,

UKParinaz Jamshidi

I was born and raised in the UK and am of Iranian background. The first memory I have of Islam was when I was in primary school and our teachers asked everyone what their religion was (I don't remember why). I didn't know what religion was at that time so my teacher told me to go home and ask my parents then tell her tomorrow. My mother seemed suspicious and even told me that I could be any religion I wanted to but because all of my friends and classmates religion, I wanted one too so I could fit in. It was then that I was labelled as a muslim and one of the disappointments at that time was that noone would give me Haribos anymore. I didn't care much about my religion for many years but when I started secondary school, my best friend was a muslim and a very happy one at that. She always spoke so well and Islam sounded very special and unique so I looked into it and decided to officially become a muslim. Of course I am completely certain that the only reason I decided to do so was because when I searched Islam online, there were only praises and everything was positive. Muslims are very good at hiding the bad aspects of Islam and muslim apologists are even more excellent at sugar coating Islam. After the initial excitement simmered down, I was more rational. For a period of about 5 years I frequently came across something (for example a hadith or one of Islam's teachings) which horrified me but every single time, I would restrain myself and tell myself that it was just the devil whispering in my ear and putting sinful thoughts into my head. Looking back, I cannot believe how brainwashed I had been and don't know why and how I would allow myself to believe such violent teachings but I was so dedicated and loyal that I did so. Just to point something out, I am very intelligent. I go to one of the top schools in my city. I am naturally a curious thinker. But my point is that even though I am clever and think for myself, Islam is very good at manipulation. After all, reading is, simply put, a form of brainwashing. Eventually I passed my limit of how many disgusting teaching, hatred, bigotry and contradictions I could take that I left. (ISIS was also a big part because they are just following the teachings of the Quran but still it is insisted that Islam is a peaceful religion). I think you do not need to be a genius to leave Islam, you simply need to have courage. Especially because there is a death penalty for those who leave.

InternationalMUHAMMAD REHANKoror

I left Islam in 1992 and become Atheists with my whole family my mother ,wife , 3 daughter , 1 son .
Islam is not a Religion but this is group of Gangster people.
This is not Religion its a cult of Death. I believed that Islam is a major threat to the contemporary human being long life. I try to tell my community and relatives if you want Peace in Pakistan and whole universe please leave this fighter Religion.
Mostly I criticised the infamous “blasphemy” laws of Pakistan openly.
This appears to have attracted some local attention. One night on 31 December 2016 a
number of clerics and neighbours turned up at my house in Tajpura, Lahore, protesting what they took to be an insult to religion. Clerics looking my family and me for killing due to Apostasy of Islam.I have been forced to leave the country out
of fear for my life. I also maintains a Facebook page under the pseudonym “Michael Smith” which has been running since January 2017.

UKNasir IqbalLondon

It is time for humanity to embrace science, reason explore our vast universe, expand our knowledge and become gods through merging with our technology rather than cling to faith, worship, ignorance and resulting cruelty and misery which have afflicted the species for millennia.

Salam man agnostick hastam va hamchenin eslam setiz dost daram dar yek groh faal basham

UKFarshid Aryan KhesalLondon

The Islamic regime of my country, Iran, does not recognize people like me who are atheist and agnostics. They are subject to the death penalty. Atheists, agnostics and secular humanists in Iran are deprived of freedom of speech. They cannot express their beliefs. Doing that, they will be arrested and may be executed for heresy. The constitution and regulations of the Islamic regime of Iran is obviously biased towards Shias. There are no any representatives for atheist, agnostics and secular humanists in the parliament. On top of that, there are not any free and private medium of the mass media. All of them are governmental and under the control of religious regime.
Evolution should not be considered just for the living creatures, but human societies have been evolving during the history. The history can prove that as agricultural revolution, industrial revolution and urbanization have been inevitable phenomena, globalization will occur in a not too far future as well. The more advance in technology, the more facilities for communication, trade and relationship between people, companies and governments across the globe.
Despite the fact that we are living in a culturally and ethnically diverse world, globalization is gradually forming a worldwide melting pot in which people have to live, work and communicate with others from different ethnic and religious backgrounds more than any time before. For such an overwhelming international integration, not only a common language and technologies are necessary, but also a common ethical framework approved by everyone is vital. For achieving that common ethical framework, we need to find some principals that are mutual between all the people around the world, which are humanity and human rights. It is commitment to humanity and human rights that generates an atmosphere of peace and admiration between all the members of our cosmopolitan societies. One of the fundamental necessities of creating and maintaining a multi-cultural and multi-ethnic society is establishment of a secular governments.

UKZahid HussainSlough

i m atheist I don't believe on anything I belong to Muslim family background but as I observed Islam stop me to think on wider sense on any matter even any religion do the same and secondly I think Islam is not a complete religion as well. Just a fake face and fear created in the mind of people which I don't believe that is right
