The Right To Renounce Faith

Apostasy

Last month there was huge global news coverage of the case regarding a Sudanese lady that had been sentenced to death for converting to Christianity. I commented on the grossly warped version of ‘justice’ at the time and argued that:

“…Ultimately, the issue of apostasy is part of a far wider question that much of the Muslim world is still struggling with – how to reconcile traditional Islamic doctrine with modern notions of human rights, including freedom of speech, freedom of association and sexual freedoms.”

Yesterday, The Economist looked at this issue again and their article can be read here.

    Inayat, thanks I read ‘TE’ article which I thought was very helpful. The irony is, a much clearer, spiritual, and rounded expression of Islam might be achieved if it could just break out of the ‘keeping up appearances’ mind-set and let go of people who either no longer believe in it or never did in the first place
