Religious persecution is the systematic mistreatment of an individual or a group of individuals as a response to their religious beliefs. Although the persecution resulted in death, torture, imprisonment, or dislocation for many Christians in Islamic countries.
The persecution of Christians can be historically traced from the first century of the Christian era to the present day. Early Christians were persecuted for their faith at the hands of both the Jews from whose religion Christianity arose and the Romans who controlled many of the lands across which early Christianity was spread. Early in the fourth century, a form of the religion was legalized by the Edict of Milan, and it eventually became the State church of the Roman Empire. The Disciples Of Jesus Christ were persecuted and killed by ungodly empires. Today 215 million Christians are being persecuted in Islamic states. Millions have been killed. Why UN, EU are ignoring this?
Christian missionaries and converts to Christianity have both been targets of persecution, sometimes to the point of being martyred for their faith, ever since the emergence of Christianity.
Islamic laws that are against the International Law and Human Rights and these laws are the foundational root of persecution, terrorism, discrimination and Injustice. On 4 November 2014, at Kot Radha Kishan in Kasur District, (about 60km from Lahore) #Pakistan, a crowd of more than 600 muslims stoned a Christian couple Shahzad Masih and his wife Shama, then burnt them alive in a furnace. A colleague of Shahzad, working at a kiln factory, claimed to have seen Shama burn pages of the Islamic religious book Quran. Shama was pregnant when the couple was accused of #blasphemy and burnt alive. Is it what God wants, or it’s what Satan wants? Satan is the enemy of humans. They did not only burn two lives in that furnace; they burnt #humanity.
In just the last year*, there have been:
Over 260 million Christians living in places where they experience high levels of persecution
2,983 Christians killed for their faith
9,488 churches and other Christian buildings attacked.
3,711 believers detained without trial, arrested, sentenced or imprisoned
Extremists groups who want to destroy Christians
In some areas of the world, there are radicalized extremist groups who wage war against anyone who doesn’t adhere to their specific interpretation of religion. For instance, in places like the Middle East and Nigeria, Islamic extremist groups terrorize communities and churches, killing those they consider to be “infidels” (often in coordinated bombings), raping and kidnapping women and burning down homes and churches. Their victims can be fellow adherents of a religion—for instance, Boko Haram attacks Muslims in Nigeria—but they always target Christians out of hatred for other faiths. In places like Pakistan, the laws are guided by Islamic law, which means if a Christian is accused of “blasphemy” they can be sentenced to death. Christians in Iran are only allowed to worship in churches that don’t speak the language of everyday Iranians. And in places like Malaysia, there are restrictive rules about conversion from Islam for certain ethnic groups.
We are living in a world, where muslims are allowed to kill every non-muslim, every human who contradicts their belief, and who left Islam or wants to leave Islam. Whoever will question or criticize the beliefs of Islam will be killed by the Islamic governments, Muslim Public, Or by the Mujahidin (Terrorists). Muslims are warmly welcomed in Europe and America, muslims live a free life, they preach islam and many of them believe that Islam is the religion of Peace. But In Islamic countries where Islam rules, they persecute Christians, rape women and little girls. Even Islam permits to marry a 6-9 years old girls. Killing and Jihad is a Islamic pillar and practicing muslims believe that they will enter into heaven/paradise of Allah by killing other humans.
What The world think, They can stop Christianity with the sword and #terrorism? They can kill Christians under blasphemy laws, But they can never hide the truth.
Romans, Greeks who first persecuted Christians are now known for Vast majority Christian countries. Do you think Middle East can end #Christianity, It’s been 2000 years, Christians are being killed, but more people are leaving their religions, and following Jesus Christ (The word of God) and accepting Him the Savior (Messiah) Of The world. Their families persecute them, kill them, but believers of Christ never cared about the persecution by the power of Majority or wealth of the #world.
The teachings of Messiah is the foundation of humanity and Global Peace. Jesus Christ says “And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. (Mark 12:30-31)
This teaching is impacting the world and changing the world. All Christian reformers worked for the Global society. While on the other hand all muslim religious leader fought war and killed people for their religion.
Muslims follow the Quran of Prophet of Islam which describe, Qur’an 9:29 Kill those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture – [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.” and in Qur’an 9:14 Kill them; Allah will punish them by your hands and will disgrace them and give you victory over them and satisfy the breasts of a believing people. Because of such teachings muslims kill each other, In Islam there are 73 sects and each one believe they are only true muslims, others who belong to 72 sects are pagans. To kill pagan its duty of a muslim according Islam and Quran. In Islam the war was started from the begining of Islam, Arabs who accepted Muhammad as a prophet of Islam, killed their families who didn’t agree with them. After Islam spread, the first war within islam started in Karabla, when Yazid ibn Mu’awiya ibn Abi Sufyan commonly known as Yazid I, was the second caliph of the Umayyad caliphate, who killed the grandson of their Prophet Muhammad. Even Shia muslims who call Hazrat Ali, Mola Ali believe Ali (the cousin and son-in-law of Prophet Muhammad) was above God and no one could kill him. But the truth is Ali was also killed by another muslim Abd al-rahman ibn Amr ibn Muljam Al-Muradi. As muslims grew they attacked other nations. Today where mulsims are in vast majority all are invade nations, where muslims kill each other and targeting Christians.
Its the time, to stop Islamic terrorism and Political invasion. Muslim can become a peaceful human being if they will follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. Muslims believe that Jesus Christ is a Prophet, True Messiah, born by virgin Marry, raises the dead, open the blind eyes and created birds. But they do not follow the teachings of Messiah. countries of the world who are the members of the United Nations. The United Nations has been trying to end terrorism since 1945. The World’s most famous and influential people and business companies are giving billions of dollars to the United Nations. But they are unable to stop terrorism and its growing because they are not removing the cause of persecution and terrorism.
To Create a friendly environment and to encounter “terrorism and future persecution” There is a need to remove misconceptions of muslims. We all are from one generation of Adam, and We all are humans, breath in the same air, and live under the blue sky on one earth. We are all One family needing to be saved from destruction, war and terrorism. Let’s create harmony among the brothers (Children of Adam).
