The website Heat Street spoke with a number of ex-Muslims who are now working to help others make the transition out of the faith, no matter how risky that may be. Some gave their real names; others didn’t. Either way, it’s a very compelling video:

However, these folks are definitely not protected from being ostracized by some religious hardliners in their families and communities. They decided to speak to us anyway.
