I am an ex-Muslim atheist. I was born and brought up in a Muslim family. During my childhood and throughout the major part of my teens I was made to recite the Quran every day (in Arabic and its Urdu translation). I used to pray 5 times a day. I started deviating from Islam at the age of 17. When I was 20 I declared myself an atheist in my closest circle of friends.
Why this transition. Well my college had a big part in it. It was there I learnt to think beyond what I was fed my whole life. I learnt to question the most basic of things and seek answers from an unbiased perspective. Eventually when you start questioning you will eventually stumble on one particular question. Is there a God?
