Coming from countries where religious restrictions are common, many atheist refugees are currently seeking life without persecution for their non-belief within German borders.
Bangladeshi Flees After Receiving Death Threats
Such is the case of Mahmudul Haque Munshi, a Bangladeshi who fled to Germany in 2015 after finding his name on a hit list in his native country. Many of his closest friends have already been murdered, giving him good reason to fear these death threats. After receiving 4,500 death threats in a single day on Facebook, Munshi decided to flee his homeland. Clearly, it was unsafe for him to remain in Bangladesh, so he made the journey to Germany via Nepal and Sri Lanka.
