Saudi-Born Atheist Rana Ahmad: My Family or the State Would Have Killed Me If I Hadn’t Fled; The Hijab Robbed Me of My Childhood
Rana Ahmad, an atheist who renounced her Sunni Muslim upbringing and fled Saudi Arabia for fear of execution, talked about her previous life and her "awakening" in a Deutsch Welle TV interview on August 16.
Forced to wear the hijab at age 9 and the niqab at age 13, Ahmad said that this "robbed her of her childhood."
She said that she was living "in a stupor" until she became aware of the world of knowledge through the Internet and began to read and do research. "How come the education systems in Islamic countries do not provide this information?... What are they afraid of?" she asked.
