Can faith save them?
The problem of religious freedom permeates boundaries
18/10/2007

Religious experiences which are as real as life to some, may be incomprehensible to others, so said by William O. Douglas. The recent incident of releasing a catholic protestant after three years of imprisonment for possessing thousands of bibles in China is the case in point. Chinese government restricts & regulates religious practices in order to prevent any powerful ascent of religious groups. This invariably leads to relentless persecution of religious believers like Protestants & Catholics, who are subjected to recurrent harassment & illegal detentions.

This persecution of religious minorities is not only confined to China but has its presence in almost all countries, irrespective of being a developing or developed country, a secular or non-secular country. From intoleration of Judaism in Christian dominated countries to persecution of Bahais in Iran to banning of publicly wearing of religious articles in Turkey & banning the possession of Quran in US courts – all these may seem disparate but at the core are forms of curbing religious freedom. Moreover, the riots backed up by power holders defies the concept of religious freedom & eventually give rise to violent protest & mass resentment. With ethnic & religious conflicts on rise, the issue of religious freedom needs to be discussed on global forum... urgently!
