Religious Minorities Fear the Worst is yet to Come in Afghanistan

As extreme Islamic rule returns to Afghanistan, members of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) are sounding the alarm on religious persecution to restore peace and equal rights for religious minorities.

Tuesday, USCIRF held a webinar, updating the world on at-risk religious communities in Afghanistan, while the Taliban and ISIS fight for control of the region. 

Since the Taliban took control in August, Afghanistan’s economy is on the brink of collapse, women’s freedoms have been stripped, and people of faith, especially Christians, fear the worst is yet to come.
