Protect Ex-Muslims (apostasy is not a crime)

1. The Wahhabi sect does not tolerate other religious or ideological beliefs, Muslim or not. Religious symbols by Muslims, Christians, Jews and other believers are all banned. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_of_religion_in_Saudi_Arabia. * Iran bans Buddha statues https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBPvKGbR9Fg. 


2. Restriction on Apostasy (converts from Islam to another religion): * The concept and crime of Apostasy has been extensively covered in Islamic literature since 7th century. A person is considered apostate if he or she converts from Islam to another religion A person is an apostate even if he or she believes in most of Islam, but verbally or in writing denies of one or more principles or precepts of Islam. For example, if a Muslim declares that the universe has always existed, he or she is an apostate; similarly, a Muslim who doubts the existence of Allah, enters a church or temple, makes offerings to and worships an idol or stupa or any image of God, celebrates festivals of non-Muslim religion, helps build a church or temple, confesses a belief in rebirth or reincarnation of God, disrespects Qur'an or Islam's Prophet are all individually sufficient evidence of apostasy. * The Islamic law on apostasy and the punishment is considered by many Muslims to be one of the immutable laws under Islam. It is a hudud crime, which means it is a crime against God, * In numerous Islamic majority countries, many individuals have been arrested and punished for the crime of apostasy without any associated capital crimes.

* The following nations treat apostasy under their criminal laws:

~ Afghanistan – illegal (death penalty, although the U.S. and other coalition members have put pressure that has prevented recent executions)
~ Egypt – illegal (3 years' imprisonment)
~ Iran – illegal (death penalty)
~ Jordan – possibly illegal (fine, jail, child custody loss, marriage annulment) although officials claim otherwise, convictions are recorded for apostasy
~ Malaysia – illegal in five of 13 states (fine, imprisonment, and flogging)
~ Mauritania – illegal (death penalty if still apostate after 3 days)
~ Morocco – illegal to proselytise conversion (15 years' imprisonment) Only country not listed by Pew.
~ Oman – legal in criminal code, but according to the family code, a father can lose custody of his child
~ Pakistan – illegal (death penalty since 2007)
~ Qatar – illegal (death penalty)
~ Saudi Arabia – illegal (death penalty, although there have been no recently reported executions)
~ Somalia – illegal (death penalty)
~ Sudan – illegal (death penalty, although there have only been recent reports of torture, and not of execution)
~ United Arab Emirates – illegal (3 years' imprisonment, flogging)
~ Yemen – illegal (death penalty)

3. Whoever disbelieves in Allah after his belief... except for one who is forced [to renounce his religion] while his heart is secure in faith. But those who [willingly] open their breasts to disbelief, upon them is wrath from Allah , and for them is a great punishment; [quran 16:106]. * The Prophet said, "The blood of a Muslim, who confesses that Lâ ilâha ill-Allâh (there is no god but Allâh), cannot be shed except in three cases: 1. Life for life;  2. A married person who commits illegal sexual intercourse; and 3. The one who turns renegade from Islâm (apostate) and leaves the group of Muslims. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apostasy_in_Islam)

Venerable sir
Dear sir/Dear madam,

      The picturesque city of Kandy in Sri Lanka draws Buddhist devotees from all over the world to pay their homage to the Sacred Tooth Relic of the Gauthama Buddha. But Many Buddhist Monks visiting Kandy have to undergo difficulties due to lack of Suitable accommodation.

The building complex wills consist of modern residential, a well equipped library, an Assembly Hall, Centre for Meditation, a Shrine Room and a Museum where life size statues of the Most ven. Velivita Saranankara Sangharaja Mahathera, the Most Ven. Upali Maha Thera of Thailand who reintroduced higher ordination (upasampada) to Sir Lanka in 1753 and king keerthi  Sri Rajasinghe of Sri Lanka.


  The project is expected to cost over 12 Million rupees. We hope to embark upon this project with the generous contributions form the philanthropists in Sri Lanka and abroad.


The Government of Sri Lanka has declared this project as a charitable institution. Hence the contributions will be exempted from income tax.

Your goodwill and contributions to this project will be gratefully accepted.
