Reaching out to the non-believers in Muslim nations

 

This comment was added recently by a blog reader:

“I would like to see more polls that are directed at atheists in Muslim countries who risk their lives by being online. They are wanting to be involved in the world and need our support and want us to care if they die as they are alone. It would be worth finding out if they had be threatened by family or outsiders, or if some of the atheists they know have been killed. They are the most at risk and need us desperately.”

Here is my response.  I could not agree more with this comment, but reaching out to non-believers in Muslim countries is difficult.  To this point with almost 8000 people responding to the survey I have zero reporting from Iraq, Iran, 2 from Jordan, 3 from Turkey, and 3 from Egypt, for example.  There are many reasons for this, among them the fact that language may be a hurdle since the survey is only in English, I have no substantive contacts in any Muslim nations through which to publicize the survey, and, most importantly perhaps is that it may be risky for these nonbelievers to access the survey if and when they do find it (and this blog site).

Suggestions for how to overcome any or all of the above obstacles are welcome.

Other blog respondents appear to be very aware of the situation.  Vote and take a look at the results:

    Another cause is that this particular genetic makeup
    of the dog causes it to be more prone to have soft tissue all around
    the joint, rendering it easier to the hip to “pop out” in the
    ball and socket joint. Whatever you select, make these
    alterations in moderation. Change Diet – Adding turkey to your dog’s diet, especially whenever
    you are away if your canine has stress and anxiety,
    can decrease the amount of stress that your particular pup is under.
    Keeping him from walking where other sick animals have
    walked will probably be a plus.

    There are very different kinds of vapir seen in the market having different
    shapes and design, along with different colors. You may turn out purchasing a new humidifier because you are able to’t find the correct filters.
    However, rather than inhaling smoke, users inhale a vaporized mist just like that manufactured
    by vaporizers.

    I agree. I myself originated from an Islamic country (unable to disclose) and are currently in the UK seeking asylum because of my Atheism. People in Islamic countries does not have any support for them facing the daily lives and tyranny of being forced into believing something that they don’t want to believe. Majority of Muslims are in the delusional state that they are in a war between forces of ‘good and evil’ in which for them being a Muslim and Islam is a force of good.
