Amira: My experience is same as yours. I am a secularist muslim in a muslim country. Many of my secularist friends hate islam but cannot go public with their opinion.If we said publicly what we really believe that Mohammed was a fake prophet and Quran was his brain child we would be lynched by a mob of muslim fanatics immediately.That is how islam has managed to control the intellectuals through out history who knew that islam is the biggest con game going but had to keep their mouths shut. Any one who opened his mouth was killed under blasphemy laws of sharia. Apostates Ayan Hirsi Ali,Salman Rushdie, Anwar Shaikh,Ibn e Warraq, Taslima Nasreen, and Ali Sina are all under death threats.Had they been living in muslim countries they would be dead long time back.
Mohammed had realized that apostates were the most dangerous people for survival of his new religion, that is why he was most brutal on them and had them immediately beheaded.

Quran says:"Kill the renegades" (4.89)

Bukhari:V4B52N260 "The Prophet said, ‘If a Muslim discards his religion, kill him.'"

Ishaq:551 The Messenger ordered Miqyas' assassination because he became a renegade by rejecting Islam."

Bukhari, 5-59-632 Once Muadh paid a visit to Abu Musa and saw a chained man. Muadh asked, "What is this?" Abu Musa said, "(He was) a Jew who embraced Islam and has now turned apostate." Muadh said, "I will surely chop off his neck!"

Bukhari Volume 9, Book 83, Number 17:
Narrated 'Abdullah:
Allah's Apostle said, "The blood of a Muslim cannot be shed except in three cases: In Qisas for murder, a married person who commits illegal sexual intercourse and the one who reverts from Islam (apostate) and leaves the Muslims."

Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 259:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle sent us in a mission and said, "If you find so-and-so and so-and-so, burn both of them with fire.

Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 260:
Narrated Ikrima:
Ali burnt some people alive (former muslims)., Prophet had said, 'If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him.' "
Quran continuosly curses the muslim doubters and call them hippocrites.
