- Is Islam really a religion of peace? 3 answers
I have heard many claim that Islam is a religion of peace. If that's true then why are you not free to disbelieve? Supposedly apostasy is punishable by death according to Islam. (I read it in an answer to some other question on this site). That doesn't seem very peaceful to me. If you are brought up Muslim are you not free to change your mind?
