PRESS RELEASE, 9-Jan-22
ExMuslims of Kerala, a newly formed organization for those who leaves Islam, declares January 9 as Kerala Exmuslim Day every year. This is the first time in the country, such an organization has been officially formed in India.
It was on January 9, 2021, a debate between M.M. Akbar, an Islamic Dawah propagandist, and EA Jabbar, a freethinker and critic of Islam, was held in Malappuram and which became a hit among the netizens. It received more than a million views on YouTube alone. This debate later resulted in a situation where more people started to realize the inhumanity and futility of Islam and in abandonment of it as a religion and to nurture freethought and scientific temper in Kerala society, especially among the Muslim population. This is the reason this date was chosen to mark as a major milestone for history.
The problems faced by the ExMuslims just for renouncing their religion is unmatched, when compared to other religions. They are often appalling both mentally and physically and are subjected to ostracization in all realms of social existence. This is the reason why an Organization for ExMuslims became indispensable to safeguard their human rights, dignity and to ensure the constitutional rights promised by the country. Apart from that, the organization has also envisioned moving the court against all atrocities committed in the name of religious traditions or practices that violate basic human rights.
The meet was attended by, Liyakkathali, President; Jasla Madasserry, Vice President; Safiya PM, General Secretary; Arif Hussain Theruvath and Shafeeq, Executive members.
