Vietnamese Christians Beaten And Arrested For Their Faith In Christ

Several Hmong Christians have been assaulted and arrested by the Viatnamese gocvernment after refusing to renounce their faith in Christ, according to the persecution watchdog group, International Christian Concern (ICC).

Four believers have been beaten and arrested for their faith, while officials brought an image of Buddha and demanded them to worship him. Within Vietnam's communist system Christians are viewed as threats and new laws are providing more power to control religious practices in the country.

According to CBN news, Christians in remote areas "experience the most intense persecution" because churches are growing rapidly there. "These believers face exclusion, harassment, discrimination, loss of property and even violent attack for their faith".

"Such attacks and acts of harassment against religious communities have multiplied recently in Vietnam," the Vietnam Committee on Human Rights noted in a statement.

"The authorities are invoking the law to criminalize legitimate religious activities, creating a climate of impunity for a wide range of violations of freedom of religion or belief."
