Government Restrictions & Harassment On Religious Groups At An All Time High.

Advisory: The editorial board of HNewsWire adopted the official policy to bypass many social media platforms. Some of these include: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Parler, and YouTube. We believe these companies are responsible for many of the spiritual ills our world faces today. In some cases, however, we have allowed our guest contributors to include content from their YouTube channel while we search for alternatives.

The Pew Research Center has recently released its 12th annual report on how 198 nations and territories infringe on its citizens’ religious rights. The new report compares data from the pre-pandemic period of 2019 to the latest year with available data across more than a dozen United Nations, U.S., European, and civil society sources.

The report revealed that across 57 nations or 29% have shown “very high” or “high” levels of government restrictions, matching a peak from 2012, Christianity Today reported. This is a small increase of one nation from 2018’s records. According to the report, the global median on Pew’s 10-point scale remained at 2.9 following a steady rise since the baseline of 1.8 in 2007, when the report first began measuring such metrics.

Nations in the Middle East and North Africa had the highest score of government restrictions with 6.0, followed by the Asia Pacific at 4.1, Europe with 209, the Sub-Saharan African nations with 2.6, and the Americas with 2.0. Among the different types of government restrictions, the most common was “government harassment of religious groups.” About 9 out of 10 nations or a total of 180 showed at least one incident. Another most common type of government restriction is “government interference in worship,” which 8 out of 10 nations or 163 total recorded incidents.

The report also found that about half or 48% of nations used force against religious groups, led by China, Myanmar, Sudan, and Syria with more than 10,000 incidents each. According to Pew, “Renewed fighting between the military and armed ethnic organizations in the [Myanmar] states of Kachin and northern Shan ‘deeply impacted’ Christians, according to USCIRF. In 2019, thousands were displaced-including many Christians-in addition to more than 120,000 Rohingya who already had been internally displaced, and the military damaged over 300 churches.”

In China, “restrictions” is a loosely used word to describe the communist state’s activities against the Uyghurs, Christians, and other religious minorities. Proof of which was evident during the first ever World Uyghur Congress, a non-governmental tribunal organized by a group of lawyers, professors and advocacy groups to expose China’s human rights abuses against religious minorities.

Such abuses include intense surveillance, acts of genocide, mass detention, repression, and sterilization, The Guardian reported. In fact, a former Chinese police detective has spoken to CNN about how authorities attack and take Uyghurs at night when they least expect it. Upon their capture, they are subjected to abuse and are forced to confess. The youth are beaten up and both men and women are raped by prison guards.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian maintains, “The so-called genocide in Xinjiang is nothing but a rumor backed by ulterior motives and an outright lie.”

If you hadn’t noticed yet, the freedom that America provides is what’s standing between us, and the Christians in Myanmar being trampled over. But that’s not to say we aren’t ostracized and made to look like domestic terrorists. Perhaps this is stage one, where society comes to the conclusion that we’re in the way of their breakaway society. Our morals are in the way of their goals; We’re merely a stepping stone in the eyes of the elite. Little do they know, Jesus is king & their plans will fail. Revelations 20:9 states “And there came down fire from God out of heaven and devoured them: and the devil, who seduced them, was cast into the pool of fire and brimstone, where both the beast and the false prophet shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.” I choose Jesus. Stay inquisitive in the word of God, and the world around you.
