Mission statement
Australian Ex-Muslims is a not-for-profit  group that provides a forum for people who have left the Muslim faith. It provides an opportunity for people to express their views, and share experiences, anonymously if they wish. Many Ex-Muslims  feel traumatised and intimidated and fear ostracism by family and friends or even worse kinds of recrimination, as a result of leaving Islam. This site is intended to give people in this situation a sense of reassurance and mutual support.
