2b: Should apostates be punished criminally if they merely leave Islam? What if they attempt to convince others of their position, with the possibility that they would leave as well?
Should there be a difference if
i) the apostate converts to another 'religion of the book
ii) converts to a different religion entirely
iii) becomes an agnostic
iv) converts to an 'Islamic heresy'
v) converts from Sunni to Shia or vice versa
