This may sound stupid, but be open about it because your family and friends would rather hear it from you than someone else.

Obviously its not a bad thing, but people will question why you didn't tell them if they hear it elsewhere.

In answer to your question though, if you're ashamed then you probably shouldn't of converted, one would suggest? Either way, embrace it, Muslims are very accommodating, caring people.

I would say yes but only because I consider all religion an epic fail.

Your religious beliefs are your own. There isn't as much hate around Muslims as people like to pretend there is. Especially if you live in a big city like London, no one cares what you believe.

Thanks. I appreciate the positivity. I think I'll tell me family first, if they don't accept it then it won't bother me. I believe what I want to believe

To all those here that would impart judgment upon this person for their decision, all I have to say is this:

"Do not judge, lest ye be judged"

Done.

What made you convert?
I used to dislike Islam. However after doing some research about their faith I have realised that Islam is a religion of peace

Yes, you're in favor of a religion that makes women wear burkas and makes it followers blow up for the sake of their God.
I don't blame you for this view. I thought so too but differences between Islam and extreme Islam are interesting. Allah accepts and forgives all

I can understand that view. Religion is the cause for most wars and I can certainly agree. Religion helps me live my daily life positively

Done.
Let's do the whole quote: "Judge not, that ye not be judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again."

So if you're a Christian who converted to Islam, you better not slam this girl for doing the exact same thing or you're in trouble.

Islam is far from the religion of peace, the teachings of the Qu'ran leave much to be desired, but as you've said there is difference between Islam and Islamic Extremism.

Good luck.

Can you say exactly what it was that made you convert?

Honey, there are good and bad everywhere. There are good and bad people in every religion, country, race... etc. People shouldn’t judge islam based on the bad guys only. People should stop judging it badly (due to bias) without doing the necessary research. Then they’ll know that it’s truly a religion of peace.

I encourage you to be open about it. Never be ashamed, because you’re doing absolutely nothing wrong.

Nothing as far as I'm aware, but some people (extremists) take their religious beliefs to a completely different level in comparison to moderate Muslims.
