Police in Pakistan are doing little to protect the minority Christian community from the harassment they face from the Muslim majority, including threats to convert to Islam or abandon their homes, according to an Asian Human Rights Commission report.
While attacks and persecution against Christians have been ongoing throughout the country in the past few years, AHRC said in its report that Christians residing in Chak 44, Mandi Bahaudin, Punjab Province, have especially faced aggression at the hands of the local Muslim community.
The human rights report summarized several local instances of Muslims placing conditions on Christians to choose between converting to Islam or leaving the village, a threat which police have done little to respond to. What is more, Christians often face unsubstantiated allegations of blasphemy, which puts them in trouble with Islamic clerics. more >>
A 3-year-old Swedish boy who was being groomed by his radicalized mother to be a part of the next generation of Islamic State jihadis has died after he accidentally blew himself up with a hand grenade in Syria.
According to the Swedish news outlet SVT, the unnamed boy and his older siblings were taken from western Sweden to an area of Syria controlled by IS (also known as ISIS, ISIL or Daesh) by their mother when the now-slain boy was just 2 years old.
The mother reportedly said she wanted her sons to grow up to be IS militants before one was killed after he found a grenade in the family's home and began playing with it. As the boy played with the grenade he reportedly tripped, which caused an explosion that led to his death. more >>
A human rights group has warned that minorities in Iraq, including Christians, are facing a "catastrophic" reality with tens of thousands of people murdered or abducted by terror groups.
"The impact on minorities has been catastrophic. Saddam [Hussein] was terrible; the situation since is worse. Tens of thousands of minorities have been killed and millions have fled for their lives," said Mark Lattimer, head of Minority Rights Group, according to the Thomson Reuters Foundation.
The Christian population was as many as 1.4 million in Iraq back in 2003 during the dictatorship of Saddam Hussein, but that number has dwindled since. In October 2015, Aid to the Church in Need said that only 300,000 Christians were left, but MRG says that number is now down further to somewhere between 50,000 to 250,000. more >>
The Communist Party in China's coastal Zhejiang province is forcing persecuted Christian churches to hand over all of their tithes and donations to government officials, reports have said.
Many of these same churches that have had their rooftop crosses forcefully removed are now being forced to display the Communist flag where the crosses once stood.
China Aid, which has been reporting on the ever increasing persecution against churches in the past few years, said the government's orders are part of a move to crackdown on Christians by imposing regulations. more >>
