UK: Support Group for Ex-Muslims Founded

The Telegraph reports that plans are underway for a support group for Muslims who renounce their faith, an initiative sponsored, in part, by the British Humanist Association and the National Secular Society. The Council of ex-Muslims of Britain will begin with an initial membership of twenty-five, ex-Muslims who have agreed to be identified to the public and photographed, and will be led by Maryam Namazie, a human rights activist who was forced to flee Iran. The council aims to speak out against severe punishments for apostasy, as well as to offer an alternative for non-religious Muslims who feel the Muslim Council of Britain does not represent their interests.
