New Report on Religious Freedom

A report on religious freedom around the world has just been published by Aid to the Church in Need.  It covers a wide array of religions and spans 196 countries.  I have only begun to look at it, but it looks like it will be an excellent resource.  It confirms the findings of the Pew Forum that religious freedom violations are massive and widespread in the world today.

Pakistan By the Numbers

One of the world’s great voices for religious freedom today is Knox Thames, a researcher for the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom.  See Knox’s piece for the Foreign Policy blog on Pakistan’s religious freedom travesty.  It’s a colorful and succinct presentation of an acutely bleak picture.  May it motivate action on behalf of Pakistan’s minorities.
