A Nigerian man has been incarcerated in a mental health institution by his family after saying he had lost his belief in God.

Mubarak Bala, 29, is said to have been forcibly medicated for "insanity" for nearly two weeks, despite a doctor's opinion that he has no psychological problems.

Campaigners are calling for his release and say the case highlights the fact that atheists are a persecuted minority in many African countries. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/jun/25/...

Nigerian atheist 'ruled mentally ill'

Apparently he has no desire to rape 13 year old girls, dress his wife in bin liners, or blow himself up.

Fxcking weirdo.

As an atheist living in a muslim country once said, "Being an atheist in a muslim country is like being the only sober person in a car - with someone else driving."
