" Citizens are issued religious identity cards and anyone who tries to leave Islam faces severe penalties. "

all muslim countries issue religious identity cards, ALL of them. Turkey abolished it because they hope they can enter europe, otherwise they used to have it too until a couple of years ago.

All the identity cards are all done in the same fascistic way, so you can know who is a christian and mistreat him better.

There is not a single muslim majority country that has what we call "freedom of religion", all non-muslims are harassed in a way or another, are restricted in their search of a job even if they are more qualified than the muslims.

Many muslim countries (if not all) don't give citizenship to non-muslims. We should behave that way too.
