Because It's easier to say that Im an.ex-muslim, than saying:
"Well, I was indoctrinated into Islam. I was raised into the belief that Islam was pure and full of goodness, so I wasnt really a muslim by choice.
I did not really leave Islam, but realized that these arent my thoughts and beliefs etc..."
look at that., so wonderful to read that from INcePtion.. She literally grew up on CEMB forum now she is ready to answer critical questions to this damn world., and the question was
A question that comes up with some regularity is: “Why do you identify yourselves as Ex-Muslims?”
on that question and answer let me add this news link on Pakistan's Independence day.. The August 14th...Indian are late by one day
... well Indians are always late ., Late for meeting ., late for eating and late for waking up
anyways let us read 7 trials of being a Muslim in our times
and that is from SULEMAN AKHTAR ..
"How do you guys celebrate new year in Pakistan in line with Islamic principles?” a very learned German friend of mine asked me last New Year’s Eve in Sweden.
Coming from a person well-versed in history and contemporary politics, the question took me by surprise.
I immediately wanted to explain to him that not everything that happens in Pakistan is linked to Islam, but I held back.
One. one is always a Muslim. Period. The absence of religious freedom in most Muslim societies makes it next to impossible for one to deviate from the written and unwritten rules of behaving in a 'Muslim way'.
Quite ironically, one is always a Muslim in Western liberal societies as well, even if he/she proclaims to be not-very-religious, non-religious, or an outright atheist. They have a word for it: “ex-Muslims”.
One is expected to recall, delineate and enlighten the world as to how one is not-so-Muslim, having come from a Muslim background.
The question reminded me of Islamic banking, television commercials of Shariah-compliant products, Ramazan transmissions aired by several Pakistani TV channels and many other modern-day ostentatious spectacles which invariably drag religion into everything.
And I realized he was probably justified in asking that.
As a Muslim, owing to many political, social, and historical reasons, one may land up in the most absurd situations even if one applies common sense.
well that is the first one and there are six more to read.,if you like to read go and click the link ..lol..
