    ... hence why he is no longer a Muslim.

    Nice one Red

    Muslims are not Jews.
    Being a Muslim is not done through blood but rather ideology.

    O.K. something more simple then like claiming the veracity of the Satanic Verses?

    Sure there would be opposition but he'd have a right to say it and believe it

    Regardless Rushdie was charged with apostasy and heresy and the sentence was death.

    There wouldn't be just opposition there would be Fatwas calling for his death and he would live the rest of his life with a target on his back.

    He basically said he lied about converting because he hoped it would stop the fatwas.
    He lied about converting back to Islam.
    Not a Muslim

    Charged by who?
    You?
    Damn you are a harsh judge.

    That is not the mainstream Islamic view, under all five schools of Islam it has been decided that people are to be punished for apostasy on earth and in the afterlife.

    That doesn't represent God or me as a Muslim.

    He never converted to Islam, he was born and raised a Muslim, he never renounced his faith, what he did do was claim that he had become a devout Muslim and renounced writing the Satanic Verses to try to get the target off his back. He later felt ashamed of that and admitted it was only a pretense to get the target off his back but he never once renounced being a Muslim. Go on find me the quote in which Rushdie claims not to be a Muslim.
