I have a question for my muslim followers. I am genuinely curious and I am asking this question as an ex-Christian. I left an evangelical church when I was 16, though my parents made me attend services until I was 18. Anyways, (I could be wrong about this) but it seems like it is much more difficult to leave Islam than Christianity. I am reading about predominately muslim countries where your ID cards state your religion and you cannot change it (Malaysia ect.). Also, just from personal anecdotes and my experiences working in a predominately muslim work environment (I was “Christian girl” even when I tried to explain that I wasn’t Christian, it didn’t bother me I just found it odd.)
Is it just a country to country/ culture to culture thing? I’m genuinely curious.
Please only answer if you follow Islam or are an ex-muslim.
