  • Perhaps he should explain some details about the 400 wanting to opt out. For instance, how many were originally non Muslims but converted on account of marriage to a Muslim spouse.

  • If you don't want people of your religion to leave your religion, then you shouldn't accept people of other religion who leave their religion.

    If you accept people of other religion to leave your religion, then you shouldn't bar people of your own religion to leave for other religion.

    You can't have your cake and eat it too.

  • You have to look within yourself and not blame others on why Muslims are leaving Islam. Could it be that they find Islam inconsistent with science, logics, human rights and ethics.... and are realising that Islam is not the way to God but to ignorance, poverty and wars and violence ?

  • Evangelism is all about brainwashing. The evangelicals are experts in this. The same brainwashing goes on in the madrasahs in Pakistan which turn out cannon fodder for the killing fields in the Middle East. These madrasahs are funded by Saudi Arabia who are killing the youth of Pakistan.
