Persecution and Killing of
Christians by Country
The Bangladesh government has launched a $1 billion mosque-building
programme. A Bangladeshi Christian family of five were violently
evicted from their home in Dhaka on 13 February 2018 by a mob of
about 30 Muslims. The incident was reported to the police but no
arrests have been made. There are frequent "land grabs" targeting
the property of the Christians and Hindus in Bangladesh.
Brunei is set to roll out the next stage of the implementation of
full Sharia law, after the Islamic Religious Council and Sultan
Hassanal Bolkiah signed off the measure on 10 March 2018. There are
already tight restrictions on the teaching of Christianity.
Boko Haram militants are active in violently
persecuting the Christian minority of northern Cameroon. Their crops
are burnt and their livestock stolen. For example, when the village
of Roum was attacked on 15 January 2018, two churches and at least
93 homes were destroyed, as well as 20 food stores and the
church-run health centre. Four people were killed.
The far north of Cameroon is very different from the rest of this
mainly Christian country. In the north, Muslims are 60% of the
population and strongly dominate the Christians economically and
politically. They also dominate the courts, which tend to make
judgements that disadvantage Christians. Muslims own nearly all the
shops, and actively try to convert Christians to Islam, by offering
them clothes, money, wives or shops - or, in the case of young
women, by marrying them.

Chad is becoming a Sharia Muslim Country. On 10 May 2018, a
Christian minister refused to recite the new, compulsory oath of
office, instead replacing the name “Allah” with the French name for
God (“Dieu”). She was initially ordered to take her seat by the
Chairman of the Constitutional Court, but the court later agreed to
accept her amended phrasing. Another Christian who refused entirely
to swear on the Bible was removed from her post as a political
advisor and replaced with a Muslim.
Christians have also protested against proposals to formalise the
payment of diya (“blood money”) to the families of victims for some
crimes. Diya is a concept in sharia law, in which compulsory
monetary compensation is paid by the perpetrator of a crime to
victims or their families, in cases of death or injury. According to
sharia, female or non-Muslim victims receive less compensation than
Muslim victims who have suffered in the same way.
Four Islamist terrorists, armed with guns and knives, killed three people
during an attack on a church in Chechnya. The gunmen, who were also

to storm the church in Grozny on Saturday 19 May 2018 and take
hostages. The Christian Minister Sergiy Abasov was holding a service
when shots were heard outside the church, along with chants of

country is demanding the personal details of all those under 18
years of age who attend Christian meetings. Registered churches were
ordered to submit by 10 April 2018 the full names, ages, places of
study and state-assigned identification numbers of all people under
18 who attend meetings. A government official admitted that the
demand for personal data, "was not sent to Muslims … just to
More than 16 centuries ago, a Christian from the Maldives called "Theophilus
the Indian" brought the Gospel to Yemen. He led the king of Yemen to
Christ in AD 354. Now both Yemen and the Maldives are strongly
Islamic, and Christians in either country can be arrested for
sharing their faith. In the Maldives you can be imprisoned for
having a Bible in your home, and it is a crime to critise Islam. As
converts from Islam, Maldivian Christians have broken the law just
by deciding to follow Christ.
Malaysia's highest court has ruled that Christians converting from
Islam cannot change their officially registered religion without
permission from a sharia court, effectively leaving converts open to
being prosecuted for apostasy. The court ruled against four
Christian converts from Sarawak on 27 February 2018, who had
requested to be able to remove their Muslim status from their
compulsory identity cards.
The Church in Mauritania is small, underground and
severely persecuted. Article 306 of the Criminal Code Book specifies
the death penalty for an apostate unless they return to Islam within
three days. Although no Christians have been executed, some have
been imprisoned. They also suffer many of the other normal penalties
for those who leave Islam: they are rejected by their families,
thrown out of their homes, lose their jobs, lose their inheritance
rights, and women are often divorced by their Muslim husbands.

Hindu girls and young women in Pakistan suffer similar abuse.

In pre-lslamic times, there was a Diocese, Christian Bishopric) of
Sanaa, capital of modern Yemen, and another Diocese on the Island of
Socotra, which was then, and still is, ruled by Yemen. According to
tradition, the apostle Thomas brought the Gospel to Socotra in the
first century. The pagan king of Yemen became a Christian in AD 354
and built three churches in the main cities of his country. But
Christianity in the region came under severe pressure when Islam
arrived in the 7th century. By 632 Yemen had submitted to the new
islamic state in Medina.
The last mention in the records of a Christian presence in Yemen is
around 840-850. Christianity continued longer in Socotra,
disappearing only in the 16th or 17th century. Praise God there are
now Christians again in Yemen - a small number of Yemeni converts
from Islam and a larger number of expatriate workers and refugees.
