Ex-Muslims around the world have come together with a hashtag #ExMuslimBecause on Twitter to share some of the reasons why they have left the faith.
Various reasons were cited ranging from being deprived of eating pork, being deprived from eating during Ramadhan to Prophet Muhammad’s choosing to ban alcohol instead of slavery.
For those of you still figuring out how Twitter works, here are some of the best tweets from Ex-Muslims around the world.
#ExMuslimBecause we reject dogma, superstitions, notions of omnipotent sky tyrants, flying horses, talking snakes/ants, concept of hell etc.

Of cartoons, god and protection
#ExMuslimBecause As a Black African I cannot support a prophet who actively took slaves of any color.

However, there were those who insisted that it was ok to contribute but it was a bad timing somehow.
And then there were those who insisted that the tweets were “speaking bad” about the religion.
You’re an #ExMuslimBecause you made a decision to leave. And that’s your right. But don’t speak bad about the religion. That’s not fair
