Ex-Muslim Council

Ex-Muslim Council
 of GermanyEx-Muslim Council of GermanyHuman rights activists founded the 'Central Council of Ex-Muslims' in Germany in February 2007.. Its leader Iranian born Mina Ahadi hopes to turn this into a pan-European movement. The rationale is to form a counterweight to Muslim organisations that fail to represent secular Muslims and to give help to those who wish to renounce their faith. As expected Mina is now under police protection after having received death threats.
One would have thought this would merit headlines in the European press but they have been pretty quiet on the subject so far. Secular Muslims need the mainstream media to support their right to apostasy and their right to discuss and criticise Islam. Many Muslims have come to the West to experience freedom and the right of free speech. We should give all our support to those brave enough to make a stand. The councils are spreading throughout Europe and there is now an Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain formed by Maryam Namazie. An early day motion to recognise the council has 26 MP signatures.
