Dear Lisa: Yes I am an ex-muslim and a closet apostate since muslim community will persecute me if they find out that I left islam.

Quran and sharia calls for death of apostates . Many people , mostly christians are in jails under blasphemy laws in my country (even declaring Jesus as son of God publicly is considered blasphemy). If some one criticizes Mohammed or islam publicly, chances are that mob kills you before the cops arrive.

How I left islam? I was aware of mistreatment and discrimination of women and non muslims by islam and was never satisfied by their silly explanations.

How can other muslim women see the light? Do the same. The best website for muslims to see the light is faithfreedom.org. Craig Win has written the best explanation of quran ever written, which is available on prophetofdoom.net (Ali Sina of faithfreedom.com and Craig Winn are on death threats by islamists)
