It's great to hear that lots of people in Pakistan would like to leave Islam. It is very sad (and evil) that the country (and other Islamic countries too) threatens them to stop them from becoming apostates.
What business is it of a government to be the judge of what people believe?
In Islam's case, of course, the answer will be that "religion" and "government" are inseparable - one and the same. Unfortunately.
I despise Islam with every atom of my being.
But do not despair. All evil must end, that includes Islam. It will take some time but Islam will perish. More and more people are learning the truth about Islam and coming to the realization that Islam is ugly.
Fear is a big factor. It is the fear of violent Muslims that keeps many Muslims declaring that do not want to be Muslims or they want to practice a more moderate
version of Islam. In my opinion, the so called moderate Islam can be way out of Islam for many Muslims without being the target of Islamic wrath. It may the way leading to rejection of Islam itself.
