Imran Firasat, a Pakistani Muslim-turned-Christian, has, to put it lightly, endured quite a bit for exercising his right of freedom of expression, namely his right to speak out against Islam.
Firasat, who converted to Christianity in 2004, said the reason he left Islam was because he “realized that what I was following for 26 years of my life is not a religion but in reality is a political dictatorship which persecutes and teaches to persecute through the orders and teaching of a self-proclaimed prophet (Muhammad).”
Following threats to his life, he was granted asylum in Spain. But in Spain, he has been facing a growing list of charges for insulting Islam. The most specific charge against him concerns his YouTube film, “The Innocent Prophet,” which focuses on the life of Muhammad from the viewpoint of an ex-Muslim. Because of this video, the Spanish government revoked his refugee status and now, despite being acquitted of hate crime charges, he faces deportation. [source]
