Threat to Religious Freedom: Taliban and Islamic Extremism All Afghan Christians come from a Muslim background. Believers who are discovered face discrimination from family and community, Muslim clergy and local authorities. The government treats converts in a hostile manner, using any means possible to make them recant. Christians cannot meet in public; meetings in private homes are possible. However they require great caution. Not a single official Christian church building remains in Afghanistan.
What can you do?
- Give to Afghani Christians
- Pray for those that are suffering extreme persecution under Taliban rule.
- Pray that God would bring Justice and Peace to the region.
