Group asks American Muslim leaders nationwide to repudiate Sharia’s requirement to execute Muslim apostates.
The group, Former Muslims United, has developed a document they call the “Muslim Pledge for Religious Freedom and Safety from Harm for Former Muslims” or The Freedom Pledge. Muslim leaders are receiving the pledge with a request that they sign and return it.
The document cites eight different sources to establish the fact that mainstream Islam includes doctrines requiring apostates to be executed. Here’s just one example:
All four schools of Sunni Islamic law… as well as the other main schools of Shia Islamic law… unanimously agree that a former Muslim male, also known as an apostate, must be executed. While some hold that an apostate woman should also be executed.
Interesting isn’t it? A majority of the most dedicated and knowledgeable members of the ‘religion of peace and tolerance’ advocate murdering the ones, who part with Islam, and yet many would claim that I am the one scaring people and using hate speech!
To what are the Islamic leaders being asked to agree? Stated at the bottom of the pledge is:
I renounce, repudiate and oppose any physical intimidation, or worldly and corporal punishment, of apostates from Islam, in whatever way that punishment may be determined or carried out by myself or any other Muslim including the family of the apostate, community, Mosque leaders, Shariah court or judge, and Muslim government or regime.
