 Nepal seeks to toughen anti-conversion laws

Nepal (CD/ MNN) — Compass Direct reports some startling
developments in Nepal that could impact the future of Gospel work there.

Voice of the Martyrs Canada also confirms the reports which
indicate that there's a change coming in the criminal code.

Nepal abolished Hinduism as the state religion in 2006 but is now working
on giving the criminal code added "bite." Changes now forbid a person of one faith to "convert a person or
abet him to change his religion."

According to Compass, Article 160 of the proposed code also says no one will
be allowed to do anything or behave in any way that could cause a person from a
caste, community or creed to lose faith in his/her traditional religion or
convert to a different religion.

The standard clauses of "offering inducements or without inducement" and
preaching "a different religion or faith with any other intent" are also
included in the prohibitions.

Evangelists convicted under the code could face a five-year jail sentence as
well as a heavy fine (US$685). If the
offender is a foreigner, deportation would come within seven days of completing
the sentence.

 Re: Nepal seeks to toughen anti-conversion laws


Again in 2015 this is happening again, I was speaking with a pastor there and in March they are looking to pass additional laws on anti-conversion. India is also doing this. There is much persecution ahead and this is a major shift in the world around most of the christian nations to increased pressure on christians and against evangelism.
