Since a lot of people have been raising doubts about the veracity of Shakila, the Liberated One, I thought it might be helpful for me to write a note at her site:
I just got off the phone with Shakila, the Liberated One, and we agreed that it would be helpful, at least for people of good will, for me to add a note here affirming her veracity. I’m not concerned about jihadis, Islamic supremacists and jihad enablers who will not be satisfied by anything I say, but since people on the side of freedom have raised questions, it seemed worthwhile to address a few concerns that have been raised.
First, Shakila has posted a large amount of personal information here, leading some to be worried about her safety, and others to wonder why she is so apparently unconcerned about making personal information public even though she says she is in a country where she could be arrested or killed for her apostasy if discovered. In fact, while the information she has given about her life situation is generally accurate, she has changed small details so as to avoid detection.
However, I have not only spoken with her on the phone. I have seen her resume, have her address, seen her photograph, and have other details about her situation that have not been and are not going to be made public….
