Leaving Islam — apostasy — can be a dangerous business.
There is a large body of Islamic texts, traditions, and Islamic jurisprudence, that prescribe the death penalty for apostasy: “The conscious abandonment of Islam by a Muslim in word or through deed.”
Muslims who dispute this interpretation can themselves be deemed “hypocrites” or even as “apostates” and thereby subjected to violence or murder, by those who do support the traditional, long-held interpretation. Although that interpretation is not unanimous among Muslims, it is almost unanimous among all current and all past Islamic scholars, stretching back over a thousand years.
In fact the UK has no shortage of Muslims who strongly support the death penalty for Apostates — and within their own family are ready and willing to act on it.
Such was to be the fate of Xavier, a young, British-born, devout Muslim lad, the son of Muslim immigrant parents. A little over a year ago, Xavier decided to sit down and properly read through the Quran.
Like many Muslims who have done just that, he concluded Islam was not for him.
Now an apostate, his family and his Muslim community — wanted him dead.
“All this because he loves this country, this heritage and the freedom that everyone else takes for granted!” explains Toni Bugle, the founder of MARIAS (Mothers Against Radical Islam & Sharia).
Here is the letter Xavier sent to MARIAS …
I’m Xavier and I’m an Ex-Muslim.
I was disowned by my family and had nowhere else to turn.
I decided to tell some other Ex-Muslims that I was in this situation and I was put in contact with MARIAS straight away.
MARIAS worked long and hard to get me a refuge where I could stay temporarily till I found work and a place to stay myself.
After a week of multiples to different families and organisations (and a lot of rejections from many), MARIAS eventually found me a place I could stay to sort out my life as no one else would.
There’s no one more willing to help apostates as there was a great risk associated with people like me.
Now I’m working, have my own place and I’m on track to fixing my life and deciding my own future for once.
I know if I didn’t find a place to stay away from my family, I would end up killed*, either by being sent abroad or have it done here
After the convictions of Mohammad Rostami, 37, Mehdi Zare, 32 and Amin Kaveh, 35, on a string of sexual exploitation offences, a spokesperson for the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) stated:
“These men have been found guilty of the most heinous crimes against vulnerable girls, plying them with drugs for their own sexual gratification … The multiple convictions show a calculated operation of grooming girls for sex and then threatening violence in an attempt to stop their victims speaking out.”

Amy’s family has connected with MARIAS and asked us to share the following account from Amy;
Seven years ago, when she was 14 years old, Jade was sexually harassed, intimidated, humiliated and almost raped by a local gang of Muslims.
Police and Social Services provided zero assistance.
Thankfully, she escaped, but — as the above map shows — many, many other innocent British girls have not. In fact the above map is just the tip of the iceberg.
“… police, social services … did not help at all. And because of this, multiple girls have been abused and raped by this gang time and time again,” writes Jade.
She briefly shares her personal story with MARIAS.
Thank you for your resilience and courage, Jade. And for joining the effort to put an end this travesty.
I wanted to write a message to get my point across. Yes, everyone knows it happens with white men . But grooming gangs of Muslim descent are a whole lot different. There’s more than one man, there are many, many men that pass girls around. I’ve seen it happen – there are things they do.
I was now living in a mostly Muslim area, whereas before that I had lived in other places which were mostly white. I have no problem with either as I have a mixed-race family.
It was peaceful and lovely at first in my new area as I was right by my friends and it was fun. Until one day me and my friends went to a canal, right at the bottom of my street. My friends and I were 14 at the time.
There were a gang of Muslim men that looked to be between 17 and 30. They had said hello and were being polite, so we started being friendly back. One came over, picking me up from behind and shouting “fresh white P****’”.
I was disgusted and told him to put me down — which he refused to do. So in the end one of the other lads told him to put me down. They still wouldn’t let us walk off, they had been pulling on our arms, trying to give us vodka and asking us to join them at a party. We said no. At no point did these men ask for our ages.
“We were harassed (and) called dirty white trash, white whore …”
“Sharia … should not be allowed to operate in the UK.”
I had followed (Toni Bugle, founder of MARIAS) on Twitter for quite a while before we started speaking. She asked if I lived in the UK and from there we began to DM (“direct message”), exchanged mobile numbers and then spoke on the phone.
I wanted to share my experience, as I believe it is important for others who are still suffering to know that they are not alone and to also show that Sharia cannot and should not be allowed to operate in the UK.
I was forced into a marriage at the age of 18 (Ed: Shazia is now in her 40’s). The nikkah took place in my family home. It was obvious that I was not happy to be forced into the marriage but the molvi didn’t care. My father had decided I was to be married and his decision was gospel. The molvi didn’t give a damn about my feelings or my refusal to say ‘I do.’
The marriage was going ahead whether I agreed or not.
Forced into a marriage to a man much older than I was who made it clear, from the start, that he married me only for the red passport was hell. What else could it have been?
My mother told me I would grow to love him. Grow to love a man who raped me? Grow to love a man who raped me so violently one night that the next day I ended up in hospital?
Third wave feminists … are turning a blind eye to the atrocities going on in the Middle East and Europe.
I have been learning and reading about the impact of Sharia law in both the East and the West. The level of misogyny in various cultures and religions, particularly Islam, is appalling. With the recent influx of unvetted migrants from the Middle East into Europe and North America, the western world is crumbling economically and safety cannot be guaranteed. The reason I felt compelled to write about this topic is because facilitating it is what’s causing women, native and foreign alike, to suffer indefinitely.
The thing is, these atrocities to women are not limited to women living in the Middle East.
Over 1400 girls (and potentially up to 1 million girls) were sexually abused and prostituted by Pakistani Muslim grooming gangs over 16 years. Despite the pleas for help to local authorities, they were largely ignored and cases were covered up for the sake of political correctness.
I can personally attest to abuse from Muslim men, ranging from someone I dated and complete strangers while living in Tampa. In the few years I lived there, I was stalked by a complete stranger while I was shopping and I was groped by a strange man while attempting to swim laps in a gym pool. As for the prior relationship, he took advantage of my insecurities and sympathy in an attempt to control me. When I found out the truth regarding his personal character, I finally left and haven’t looked back.
Personally, I feel passionate about this topic because I’ve been a victim of misogyny and abuse throughout my life. From the time I was young, I felt like I was a disappointment to my father because I’d never be an obedient, good girl who stayed at home. I also witnessed my father being selfish and unkind toward my mother for a long time until she finally divorced him. As a result, I subconsciously accepted it and replayed the scenario countless times in my previous relationships. When I was sexually assaulted in my own home, it was my mom, not my father, who protected me and kicked the assailant out.
The point I’m trying to make is that if it’s this bad in a western society, imagine how much worse it could have been if I was raised in Sharia based upbringing.
If the same sexual assault happened under those circumstances, then I could have been subjugated to marrying my assailant. Or worse yet, I could have been a victim of honor killing for allowing myself to be sexually assaulted and putting shame on the family.
Original vs Third Wave Feminism
What bothers me right now is how third wave feminists in the United States are turning a blind eye to the atrocities going on in the Middle East and Europe.
The last thing any logical person would do is welcome potential thieves, rapists, and murderers with open arms and all allow them to exhaust all available resources. The goal of my blog is to educate westerners on the dangers of Sharia based Islam, discuss various topics and empower women & survivors of abuse.
I know there are many survivors of abuse out there and I want to empower them to not be afraid and learn how to protect themselves.
“… why would a non-Islamic country continue to allow these illegal (Sharia) courts to operate alongside the British legal system?”
Every 7 seconds a girl under 16 is forced into marriage… 16 years ago I was that girl, forced
into marriage, literally at gunpoint, by my uncle in Kashmir.
The attitude of the British Government now is exactly what it was 16 years ago.
They say Sharia has no basis in English law, so there’s no need to declare it illegal.
In which case how did what happened to me … actually happen?
After my forced marriage, on returning to the UK, immigration services told me that if my
marriage was not registered in this country, it would not be valid. It was never registered.
And yet after a long fight against the UK legal system, including my own solicitor, at the age
of 21 I had no choice but to accept a divorce through the UK courts. This was despite my
attempts to get the marriage annulled, as it should have been.
Therefore, in this instance, Sharia clearly took precedence over UK law.
