Religious Freedom Report in the world 2014 

In more than half the countries of the world religious freedom is repressed. That is the finding of a comprehensive report published by Aid to the Church in Need—the “Religious Freedom Report 2014.” In-depth research—covering the years 2012-2014—shows that in 116 of the world’s 196 nations freedom of worship is obstructed to one degree or another, ranging from mild harassment and discrimination to outright persecution and violence. 

The report documents that 14 countries are home to religious minorities that suffer at the hands of Muslim extremists. They are: Afghanistan, Central African Republic, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Maldives, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.  Click here for a 32-page Executive Summary of the report.
