Draft Laws Pose Further Threat to Religious Expression in Iran

Share this:

Iran’s parliament has put forward a draft bill threatening to further criminalise religious practices and beliefs.

Todd Nettleton from The Voice of the Martyrs says if passed, the bill would “prevent religious expression”.

This means if a Christian was “encouraging a Muslim to leave Islam and follow Jesus Christ”, that would be seen as a threat to Islam, and could result in a prison sentence.
