Church Build­ing Pro­hi­bi­tion

The Global Digest (English) - - FRONT PAGE -

Es­pe­cially to eth­nic mi­nori­ties and Chris­tians, per­mis­sion to build places of wor­ship or Churches is very re­stricted. “Chris­tian groups con­tinue to have dif­fi­cul­ties in ob­tain­ing per­mis­sion to build new churches, par­tic­u­larly on prom­i­nent sites in eth­nic states. Author­i­ties re­port­edly have not au­tho­rized the con­struc­tion of any new churches since 1997 and have in­structed that any Chris­tian wor­ship fa­cil­ity be called a re­li­gious cen­ter rather than a church.”75
