Who are you, what brought you here, where are you coming from, when were you made aware of AU, why did you decide to join...
There is no cure for that disease :-)
Nope, all you can do is feed it.
amal, still in saudi arabia?? please be careful.
Thanks Amal, your story gives me Hope for humanity :)
I just finished reading "In My Father's Country: An Afghan Woman Defies Her Fate" by Saima Wahab. It's a wonderful book, though it seems that she's always been a fairly non-religious person, it was still interesting how she went back from Portland, OR to Afghanistan to be a civilian translator for the US Military, speaking Pashtun and being very familiar with tribal customs of the Pashtun people.
I wonder if you have had a chance to read this book, as it is very enlightening of the culture in many Muslim countries, besides just the Pashtun's of Afghanistan.
In the same type of book, I'm currently reading Infidel which is a very interesting real story of a country Muslim girl from Somalia who became a member of parliament in Holland and currently lives in the Washington DC area with a bodyguard. She is, of course, an atheist now, but she was an extremely devout Muslim when she was young.
Amal, I think you are amazing.
I can not begin to imagine being a female Muslim and living with the oppression you must face every day. Talk about courage!
You are truly one of the privileged few in your situation who has strived to know the truth and succeeded.
Congratulations, and a heartfelt welcome to atheism and to this forum.
Félicitations Michel, malgré tout ce que tu as traversé, tu fais des choses extraordinaires comme être l'instigateur de ce sit.. (I'm still feeling a bit off,(bronchitis) so that's why it came out first in french).
Pas instigateur, seulement le look & feel =)
I hope you get better soon, Marianne!
