Individual testimonies from Ex-Muslims in Australia

Sabeena Mozaffar - Ex-Muslim conference presenter

My family, my social circle, my peers in the university and random strangers on the street. As a vocal ex-muslim I have attempted to speak to all of the above about the topic of Islam. And this simple attempt to start up conversations has left me with some memorable nicknames: a bigot, an islamophobe, a disgrace to the family name, a whore, a sell out to the west and an imposter. ... more

Helping others overcome the fear of Allah: Idris Hasan

My personal journey saw me grow up to be a devoted Muslim, and in my adulthood question my beliefs and eventually leave Islam.

Mission statement
Australian Ex-Muslims is a not-for-profit  group that provides a forum for people who have left the Muslim faith. It provides an opportunity for people to express their views, and share experiences, anonymously if they wish. Many Ex-Muslims  feel traumatised and intimidated and fear ostracism by family and friends or even worse kinds of recrimination, as a result of leaving Islam. This site is intended to give people in this situation a sense of reassurance and mutual support.
