Current affairs series. In this documentary, award-winning filmmaker Deeyah Khan investigates the lives of people who have left Islam as they face discrimination, ostracism, psychological abuse and even violence in the UK and around the world. In Britain, many ex-Muslims are forced to lead double lives and hide their true beliefs because of the stigma they face in their own communities.
