Canadian human rights activist, Yasmine Mohammed, advocates for the rights of women living within Islamic majority countries, as well as those who struggle under religious fundamentalism. She is also the founder of Free Hearts Free Minds, an organisation that provides psychological support for ex-Muslims living within Muslim majority countries- where the state sanctioned punishment for leaving Islam is death. 

Yasmine is a member of the prestigious Center for Inquiry (CFI) Speaker’s Bureau. She is also on the Board of Advisors for The Brighter Brains Institute, an organisation that builds secular schools. She has spoken in Canadian parliament on M103 and ‘Islamophobia’ and has been featured in national publications such as: US News The National PostThe Daily Mail, and The Mirror

She has been invited to speak in Ivy League universities and world-renowned venues for many organisations including: The Freedom From Religion Foundation, Ayaan Hirsi Ali Foundation, Ayn Rand Institute, and Think Inc. 

Yasmine is currently in the process of writing her memoir; recalling her experiences growing up in a fundamentalist Islamic household, her arranged marriage to a member of Al-Qaeda, and shedding light on the religious trauma that so many women still today are unable to discuss.

#MyPalestinianSitty is no longer alive. She didn’t get to live to be 90. If she had, and I had a chance to see her, I would jump at the opportunity...

I would not choose meeting w terrorists over meeting w her

Love you, Sitty! I hope you and Seedu are together again somewhere💗

Yasmine Mohammed, an ex-Muslim, as she calls herself, escaped a forced marriage to an Al Qaeda operative, who was bailed out of prison by Osama bin Laden himself.

@YasMohammedxx @UBC I'm looking at at the locales of the people retweeting this.
Dunblane, Jerusalem, Melbourne, London... people all over the world would like to be as lucky as we in Vancouver to see Yasmine speak.
I'll be honoured to attend.

This story is so devastatingly common. It’s referred to as ‘not my Mohammed’.

Every Western woman who goes to MidEast and is blinded by the cash and gets married there insists that she will never end up a statistic...her Mohammed would never do that to her.

Yes, he will.

@YasMohammedxx I was raised jehovahs witness and they say if you watch horror movies or listen to rock music, Satan can literally gain entry into your house, and his demons... Since then the movie "the exorcist" scares the shit out of me because of my upbringing... Similarity is unreal!!

Thank you, @rickygervais 💗

I got emotional yesterday because this is real life for me

I deal w ppl every day that have to live w the consequences of our actions in the West. It’s heartbreaking & infuriating & I’m so ashamed at how we betray them & pander to their oppressors /1

This is a common response:

“I didn’t know about X therefore X does not exist”

a) you’re not that special

b) learn about your religion
