  • Why I am not a Muslim nor an ex-Muslim
     OP - January 30, 2016, 03:53 AM

    Hello,
    This is my first post on this site and I hope I am posting this correctly.  First I want to thank the brave people who are supporting ex-muslims and the ex-muslims themselves.  Although I may not be an ex-muslim, I understand and support your cause.

    I was brought up by Muslim parents in the UK, both my parents know I am an Athiest but they don't really care  (they are just glad I am not Christian, or Jewish).
     I guess that is the reason I don't identify as an ex-muslim, because my family is still there for me.  All they ask is I say 'Aslamalikum' to their friends and relatives.  And I openly debate region with them.

    Another reason I don't say I am an ex-muslim, is because in a weird way you are still under an Islamic label.  I just say I am an Atheist.
    I understand my experience may be in the minority, but does anybody else feel the term 'ex-muslim', is still part of some Islamic identity. It almost feels like Islam is racialised, that you can't really leave it, the label still follows you.
    Thanks

    Welcome!
    I think people are who they say they are.
