Muju Naeem is an atheist blogger from the Maldives, the Indian Ocean island currently besieged by ISIS; it’s described as a “paradise for jihadists.”
Six months ago, Muju’s friend Yameen Rasheed - an activist blogger - was stabbed to death in his apartment by ISIS extremists.
Following that incident, Muju was targeted with death threats.
He fled the Maldives with his wife, to seek asylum in a secular country.
They were both recently granted asylum to Canada. Hooray!
The podcast “Secular Jihadists from the Middle East” - co-hosted by Yasmine Mohammed, who blogs at Confesstions of an Ex-Muslim - is throwing a “stereotypical Canadian housewarming breakfast for Muju and his wife - with Bacon and Champagne. (taboo in Islam)
