Plans for a Committe for Former Muslims

This time it is in the Hague! It seems like this kind of movement is gaining steam, and I think it is a much-needed sort of organization in places like Europe especially. I mean, it would be very helpful for people to have a place to go with people that know about how to deal with Muslim family members and legal protections afforded to citizens or residents of the various countries in Europe.

Jami announced in May he was setting up a Committee for Ex-Muslims. The committee wants to break the taboo on lapsing from the Islamic faith. The 22 year old Jami, himself an apostate of Islam, says many Muslims do not dare to renounce Islam for fear of reprisals, including death.

Jami, who is a PvdA council member in the town of Leidschendam-Voorburg, will launch the committee officially in September with an international press conference. He says he has already had hundreds of e-mails from Muslims from throughout the world who support him. But his own PvdA is trying to muzzle him, it emerges from internal correspondence obtained by newspaper NRC Handelsblad.
