Dear readers, this is from an Ex-Ahmadi.  I re-produce it here in its entirety.

The entry

I wanted to share my appearance on my friend’s podcast series, where I discuss what it means to challenge one’s beliefs, question one’s faith, and eventually find an identity which aligns with their values.

The podcast can be found here:

It is a fairly long listen at 43 minutes, so the following are timestamps for the various points of discussion:

  • 0:30 – Introduction

  • 2:10 – Motivation for an Interview

  • 7:10 – Challenging One’s Beliefs

  • 9:10 – Emotions While Questioning

  • 12:00 – Specific Catalysts

  • 15:55 – Coming Out Publicly

  • 23:30 – Conversations With Family

  • 31:10 – Improved Relationships

  • 34:00 – Advice to Others

  • 37:40 – Moderating Inner Dialogues

  • 40:30 – Conclusion

I also share my name and face in this interview, because I think it’s so important that those of us who are able to publicly denounce Ahmadiyyat and speak up about it should, for the sake of those who are in more dire and unfortunate situations where they are either held-back by their families, or are unable to be granted a space to actually question their beliefs – I hope that this will help some of the readers here with their journey through the indoctrination
