In the Islamic world, there is a broad consensus, both popular and scholarly, that apostates deserve to be killed. A rich theological and intellectual tradition, stretching as far back as Muhammad and his companions, supports this position. Though official proceedings against those who reject Islam are fairly rare—in part, no doubt, because most keep their conversion a closely held secret—apostasy is punishable by death in Afghanistan, Comoros, Iran, Mauritania, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, and Yemen.1 It is also illegal in Jordan, Kuwait, Malaysia, the Maldives, Oman, and Qatar. The greatest threat to apostates in the Muslim world derives not from the state, however, but from private individuals who take punishment into their own hands. In Bangladesh, for example, a native-born Muslim-turned-Christian evangelist was stabbed to death in the spring of 2003 while returning home from a film version of the Gospel of Luke. As another Bangladeshi apostate told the U.S. Newswire, “If a Muslim converts to Christianity, now he cannot live in this country. It is not safe. The fundamentalism is increasing more and more.”

This is my reality. I’m on the run from my former husband who is a Pakistani Muslim. The fact that I run away from him makes me a target for honor killing. And the fact that I have left Islam and embraced another religion make me an apostate.

I have to live in hiding someplace in Canada. My own country, Norway is no longer safe for me since my ex and his family and friends incl. other Muslims might find me. My own parents don’t know where I am. We communicate through e-mail.

BTW I will be offline for a couple of days just in case someone wonders why I don’t answer their posts.

Sunniva,
I applaud your courage and faith. You are a great example. Also you warn us of the dangers of radical Islam. Keep the faith.

Move to the United States. We have guns. You can have one, too. Don’t live in fear. The Scriptures encourage self-defense.
