Ex-Muslim Atheists and the Islamic world
By: Dariush Afshar
The Islamic world has reached to it’s dead end point. Clearly, the reform during the history of Islamic history, all have been failed, oppressed so violently and harshly and labeled as heresy which is know to be infidelity or duality or in it’s Islamic term, the “Shirk” or “Kofr”.
The Islamic world with a total population of about 1 billion and 200 millions of people, as basically settled it’s own dominance on Middle east countries and Northern Africa, the countries that have been always at war with each other or colonized by some exploiting empires from Europe. The still claim that their religion is the final and the message embedded in Islam, is nothing by a total and worldwide domination of Sharia.
In the world that powers have maneuvered through the entire regions of the globe and harvest benefits every cultures and the local achievements have become global, well-known and by other peoples of the world, accepted and implemented into their own civilization, the Islamic domination not only has not upgraded it’s own values, but tried to force cultures to accept the fate of Muhammad by sword, terrorism and chaos.
The source of all evil coming out by Islam, is a huge bank of reservoir of Islamic books in support of one book only: “The Quran”.
The Muslims have tailored a dress on their societies which barely can cover up the true dignity of their mankind dignity and that’s a problem which could have been reformed many centuries ago, but this hope is totally lost already.
Why is this hope lost ?
This hope to reform Islam is lost, because in the historical moments that Islam had the opportunity to correct the ways of Sharia laws should be implemented, they avoided different types of reforms and as said, the Heresy was and still is a criminal act towards Islamic Sharia and Quran itself. Furthermore, the ideal of secularism and religious tolerance cannot be advised for Islamic cultures, because the basic core of Islam is not the separation of church and state, that’s a historical fact when you look at the caliphates in Islamic ruling empires.
Religion is considered as a step stone in middle east and The Atheism Movement is very new to people in this region. Considerably, Iran has the highest growth of Atheism among other Nations which is due to a systematic oppression of other thinking groups and minorities and putting Islamic rules and Sharia has played a major role in disbelieving people. It’s a fact that people are trying to escape Islam because of the government’s pressure and for filling up the gap between religious pokey jail and converting to other religions, standing as an Atheist is notably important and there are many Iranians who are trying to fill this vacuum, many of us are writing or making videos and we’re influentially very active on social media.
There are big hopes for Iranian people in this regard, while those Arab Nations who have no civilization but Islamic caliphate, are not only so afraid of the Atheist movement, but they have no choice but protecting Islam anyway or completely give up against the new world values such as freedom of expression, human rights and… .
Even secularism cannot help these Nations to save their Islamic identity, because secularism has anti-Islamic values within itself which the never open minded Sharia cannot tolerate. It’s a hope that, by growing Atheism in the region, People of Arab countries, lunge enough to a democratic secular system that rejects Islam in it’s totality, plus posing adverse and averse against other mind manipulating religions such as Christianity and Judaism.
At the end, I would like to congratulate the world class movement of Atheism; I see a great future for Mankind without believing in godly superstitions, complete humans’ freedom and glorious booming of ideas.
