Iffo,
First,you deserve to be highly congratulated in finding out the truth of the faith of your birth,it cannot have been easy for you to have everthing overturned you hold dear.Good on you.
I have a question for you.
I would be more than interested to hear how,as a Muslim, you were told how to view and treat Non Muslims?Has this view changed in any way,now that you have left Islam?

Many thanks,and good luck.

Sorry for the late reply, I just saw this today.

I am from Pakistan as you might know. In my family and school and surroundings the question of treating non-muslims never came. I can not recall any instance where it was discussed as how one should view or treat non-muslims. I don't recall being told to treat non-muslims badly or look down upon them etc.
In my school in grade 9-10 we had a christian classmate. I don't remember we ever talked religion with him or teased him or look down upon him.
In my home we have quite a few servants who have different duties. All are muslims except our gardener and sweeper, they are christians. We never treated them differently.
Infact when I go home after spending longer vacation in west, and our gardener comes to say Hi, i always give him a hug as he has been with us for long time.

So in my case nothing changed after leaving Islam.

Thanks for your answer Iffo.
However, when you were a Muslim,did you ever hear from your co-religionists,on how they viewed Non Muslims and how they were to be treated?

Many thanks.

No nobody talks about how to treat non-muslims. People bash Americans, Indians, British etc but that is on grounds of politics not because they are non-muslims. Same way Chineses are always praised. Again all politics.
