Barnabas Aid is calling for renewed intervention on behalf of Afghan converts in India who risk execution for apostasy in Afghanistan if they are refused refugee status by the United Nations High Commission for Refugees. This call follows a similar request in February from partners working among Afghan refugee Christians for people to write to UNHCR to support their applications for refugee status, on the grounds that if they are not protected from deportation back to Afghanistan they risk arrest and possible execution for apostasy under that country's sharia-based law. The seven new cases causing concern involve a total of thirteen people.

Act now

Please write to UNHCR in support of the refugee appeals of Aman, Rahimullah, Hos, Moh, Roh, Haq, San and their dependents. We have prepared a template that you may wish to use as a basis for your letter.

    • As the Syrian civil war rages on, the militant Islamist group the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) now controls extensive territory in eastern Syria. The group is acutely hostile to Christians, who are suffering grievous oppression under its rule. The US Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) has named Syria as one of the world’s worst violators for the first time, saying that the crisis “has devolved largely into a sectarian conflict” and “represents one of the worst situations in the world for religious freedom”, with abuses being committed by all sides. Before the war, it was easier to be a Christian in Syria than almost anywhere else in the Arab world. Pray that the US and other Western governments will continue to work for a resolution of the conflict and for religious freedom for all Syria’s citizens.
