Sahih al-Bukhari 6921--On the Killing of Apostates

Ibn Umar, Az-Zuhri and Ibrahim said, "A female apostate (who reverts from Islam), should be killed. And the obliging of the reverters from Islam (apostates) to repent."

Christianity has faced (and still faces) a high level of critique in a democratic setup with freedom of religion/speech. It is primarily due to the exemplary person of Jesus and the moral example/commandments (which they barely managed to point fingers at) that Christianity withstood such criticism (and of course the many reasons like historical reliability, continuity of prophetic tradition etc).

Imagine what will happen if the same level of hostile criticism and freedom of speech/religion is allowed in islamic nations!
