Who is Ayaz, though? He is a religious scholar and ex-Muslim. He pursued religious training after standard, mainstream education. He was admitted to an Islamic studies school. He began to doubt the authenticity of the claims of his faith at the time.
I suspect that not being an easy thing to undergo or endure, especially being part of an orthodox religious family. Even with the doubts, he accomplished accreditation in the Islamic studies. He was not only a religious scholar in general, but an Islamic scholar in particular.
Ayaz Nizami studied Islam in great detail for many years and realized that it's a giant pile of horse shit. Now, he's in a Pakistani jail and Muslims are tweeting about him:

That's just from the past few hours. A lot of it is in the Urdu language like that last one. It says "saza-ay maut" which means death penalty.
