Islam demands that Muslims kill those who leave Islam in Koran 4:91: “They desire that ye should be infidels as they are infidels and that ye should be alike. Take therefore none of them friends, till they have fled their homes for the cause God. If they turn back, then seize them, and slay them wherever ye find them. “
The correct interpretation was given Muhammad commanded the killing of all who abandon Islam: “I heard Allah's Messenger (peace_be_upon_him) saying, ‘In the last days of this world there will appear some young foolish people who will use (in their claim) the best speech of all people (i.e. the Qur'an) and they will abandon Islam as an arrow going through the game: Their belief will not go beyond their throats (i.e. they will have practically no belief), so wherever you meet them, kill them, for he who kills them shall get a reward on the Day of Resurrection’” (Hadith, SAHIH AL-BUKHARI 4.808).
Again, “When a Muslim apostatises from the faith, an exposition thereof is to be laid before him, in such a manner that if his apostasy should have arisen from any religious doubts or scruples, those may be removed . . .That is, it is lawful to kill an apostate without making any attempt to recover him from his apostasy” (AL-HEDAYA Vol. II Hanafi Manual, Blackwell Idealist lawbase, reference number 4130).
