Praying in Public is Punishable in China
Unregistered #Christian “house churches” in #China often have difficulty finding places to worship, so after the #evangelical Shouwang Church was forced out of its rental space last year, congregants attempted to hold Easter services outdoors. The planned site was swarmed by police, and dozens of church members were arrested. #Tibetan#Buddhists and Uighur #Muslims also face severe restrictions on their ability to pray, study, and protest, and the Falun Gong #spiritual movement is strictly prohibited.
