Mr Ali Sina,
Thank you for your quick and prompt reply. Now I feel quite comfortable discussing these matters with you. On your advice that not to discuss these matters with my family members and friends, I would like to tell you that it is not my anti-religious debates, that provoke critism but it is with my actions. I do not attend any religious gatherings, i don't even remember when I last said my prayers. These things obviously gives my freinds and family a chance to critisize me. Now how can I pray for a God on whom I don't believe?
Also Mr Ali, I would like you to suggest me one thing. Now when I have left Islam, what religion you suggest me to follow? Ofcourse I need some guide lines to follow for my whole life.
Looking forward for your reply
Malik Usman
