 Religious Freedom in Nepal at Risk - Please Pray


The country of Nepal is actively working to finalize its constitution, and the people need your prayers.

An interim constitution has governed Nepal since the country's monarchy was dispelled in 2007. After the recent earthquakes, the current Constituent Assembly of Nepal quickly began working on the constitution in an effort to speed up the reconstruction process and reassure citizens they are able to effectively respond to crises.

Read more The government recently distributed 200,000 copies of the preliminary draft to the public, affording citizens the opportunity to suggest changes. On July 23, a report containing the public's feedback will be sent to the Constituent Assembly.

They hope to ratify the constitution by mid-August.

My brothers and sisters, this is a critical time for prayer on behalf of the people in Nepal.

There have been riots and protests concerning the draft. Many people are demanding Nepal return to its traditional religious roots.

Right now, religious minorities in the country fear their freedom to practice and share their faith will be severely restricted if the current draft of the constitution goes unchanged.

It looks like they are trying to make Nepal as a Hindu Country. Already there are enough elements in the constitution to make evangelism illegal. The same problem that we have in India.
