  • I'm an ex-muslim in Bangladesh
     OP - March 05, 2018, 07:13 AM

    Hi there,
    This is my first post here and I'm really looking forward to getting to know you all. Although I have been an atheist for most of my life, I am only recently trying to network out (prioritizing anonymity and safety of course). I have even started a small close group movement in Dhaka to promote and provide consultations to ex-muslims, atheists or anyone who may feel oppressed by religion (usually in person or in more sever cases of depression, recommend secular psychiatrists that we trust). I am also attempting to start my own podcast in a more active approach to reach out.

    Looking for to all future potential discussions.   Smiley

    That's a very brave thing to do in Bangladesh! I'm amazed at what you've accomplished!

    Hate and submission pretty much sums it up. I wish i could say that there is more to this religion but there really isn't.

    Thanks. That means a lot to me! That being said, I'm just an anonymous guy using a VPN behind a screen, I highly doubt I qualify as brave. Maybe after witnessing the fate of bloggers and writers has made me cynically associate the concept of bravery with the concept of risk. I apologize for going on such a weird tangent in response to your wonderful post. I think I'm still overcoming my fears and paranoia when it comes to talking about my atheism. I just love my life and maybe that's what make me a bit insecure about it. Once again, I apologize for being so scattered with how I am presenting my thoughts. Thank you and take care!

    No need to apologise. I've always hated the word 'brave' too, usually think of myself as a defector. Maybe it's because its been such a negative experience, that we subconsciously connect what we've done with negative words? I don't know, but either way, you brought together people who were suffering and that is definitely something to be proud of. It's things like that which allow us to not feel so alone Smiley

    Thank you for being so understanding! You are an awesome human being.  thnkyu
    And you are probably right about how I may be correlating negative experiences with words. Regardless, glad to be amongst fellow defectors!
