Mohammed, the atheist.
#1
Hi, my name is Mohammed and I'm an atheist.

I dont like calling myself an atheist much, but i'll allow myself this one time. It fits there. :P

I'm a student, from Bangalore. I'm an An ex-muslim, I discovered reality about a year ago, which is pretty late I must admit. My family is still a very devout muslim one, although liberal enough for me to confess my unbelief to. Can't say the same about my not-so-immediate family members though.

I believe it's time for freethinkers to speak up, to get recognized, to come out. This seems silly to some of my hindu friends, since most of their families dont have anything against atheism, and I've heard the hindu religion itself holds no grudges against it. But that's not the case for us muslims, Islam dictates death for apostacy, and I'd be dead if our country followed Islamic Law.

I registered here just so I can be counted among the heathens too, play my little part. I want more muslims to denounce Islam, and speak up about it, even. And now I think it wouldn't be so bad to get to know more people and share ideas on this topic too.
I look forward to doing so.
