WORD LID

Nahla Mahmoud

"I am a human rights activist and environmental researcher originally from Sudan. As teenager I renounced Islam and later became the spokesperson of the Council of ex-muslims of Britain."

"I became a subject of a Takfir/ 'killing apostate' campaign in 2013 and received a number of serious death threats because of an interview I did on Channel 4 criticizing Sharia courts in the UK and the Islamic laws.

I blog occasionally for a number of platforms including the New Internationalist, Left Foot Forward, Open Democracy and National Secular Society."
