Deep in Hiding (Extra Scene from 'Leaving Islam')

In this extra scene from 'Leaving Islam,' VICE News meets a young British woman who is deep in hiding and fearing for her life after her family kidnapped and beat her for becoming an ex-Muslim.

Around the world, people who leave the faith of Islam face state persecution, imprisonment, torture, and even execution, as well as violence, death threats, and ostracization from their own communities.

Many ex-Muslims risk so-called honor killing, forced marriage, kidnap, and communal violence at the hands of their families for "bringing shame" on their community. In Western countries, ex-Muslims are often thrown out of the family and face isolation and exclusion.

VICE News has gained access to an underground network in London that helps rescue ex-Muslims, and provides support and shelter for young British people on the run from their families and communities.
