US State Dept.: Religious freedom violations continue around world
June 06, 2022
CWN Editor's Note: The US State Department has released its 2021 Report on International Religious Freedom.
“From Jehovah’s Witnesses in Russia; Jews in Europe; Baha’is in Iran; Christians in North Korea, Nigeria and Saudi Arabia; Muslims in Burma and China; Catholics in Nicaragua; and atheists and humanists around the world, no community has been immune” from religious freedom violations, said Rashad Hussain, the US Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom.
The report decried violations in China, Nicaragua, Russia, Afghanistan, and Myanmar, and welcomed progress in Morocco and Taiwan.
(The report is not available as a single document; rather, one must click on the report, then choose a nation from a drop-down location menu.)
