Rescuing Ex-Muslims: Leaving Islam | Vice News

To be called a deicide is the most flattering insult that can be addressed to an individual or to a people.

CIORAN, Anathemas and Admirations

I hate all gods; I am not healthy enough to scorn them. That is the Indifferent Man’s great humiliation.

CIORAN, A Short History of Decay

Around the world, people who leave the faith of Islam face state persecution, imprisonment, torture, and even execution, as well as violence, death threats, and ostracization from their own communities.

Many ex-Muslims risk so-called honor killing, forced marriage, kidnap, and communal violence at the hands of their families for “bringing shame” on their community. In Western countries, ex-Muslims are often thrown out of the family and face isolation and exclusion.

VICE News has gained access to an underground network in London who help rescue ex-Muslims. We follow the network as it helps a young atheist escape Saudi Arabia and Turkey, and provides support and shelter for young British people on the run from their families and communities.
