Amreen (former Muslim)
Testimony of Leaving Islam
I was born in a Muslim family in Pune, India. I followed Islam all my life till I was 16. When I reached the age of 16, I was denied to study further in college. I fought a lot, and I was only allowed to continue my education if I cover my head to toe in Burqa. My dad is a very religious man and he thinks doing what Mohammad did is the answer to each of the life’s problems. It was very unfair for me to became a freak and be in Burqa all the time. So I started to leave my house in Burqa and taking it off when I reach there. So; when people could actually see me, I met a guy who liked me very much, but he was Hindu. I knew my parents would kill me if they ever found out that I am dating a Hindu guy. so I kept it secret for an entire year, by that time my sister got married to a guy who was 16 years older then her and was already married. My sister who just got 18 had to marry a 34 year old man. I mean it was so outrageous that she never even saw the guy before her wedding night. Apparently it was according to Islam so no one cared. I decided that I would never marry some old man blindly. I talked to my boyfriend but he said that he will not convert to Islam, which was the only way that we could marry and my family might accept me. When we argued, he reasoned that Islam is full of mistakes and Muhammad was not a prophet, instead he was a pedophile and a sex maniac. I argued him for months but he came up proofs all the time, in the end he convinced me that I should leave Islam. So when I got 18, I left the house and went to another city with my boyfriend. There I changed my name and now living as a Hindu. I could not be better that I left a false religion founded by the worst man in human history.
