“They see us as people who are troublemakers, deviants, apostates and blasphemers… There is nothing, nothing more intolerant than religion.”
–Maryam Namazie, activist with the Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain

On Nov. 23, 2016 at 7 p.m., please join us at Portland State University for the first university screening of “Islam’s Non-Believers” in the United States.

This new documentary by Fuuse Films, directed by Deeyah Khan, investigates the lives of ex-Muslims, who face extreme discrimination, ostracism, psychological abuse and violence as a result of leaving Islam.

Rafida Bonya Ahmed, widow of murdered secular Bangladeshi-American writer, Avijit Roy, is featured in the film. Last year, Roy was hacked to death by machete-wielding Islamist militants in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

The screening is organized by Freethinkers of Portland State University. Food will be provided.

This is a free event for the public.
