Peter Aldous questions the Foreign Secretary about the persecution of Christians in India

22nd January 2019

Peter Aldous questions the Foreign Secretary about efforts to promote the importance of religious freedom in India following the listing of India in the Open Doors world watch list top 10 of countries where Christians experience extreme prosecution.

With India entering Open Doors world watch list top 10 and now designated as a country where Christians experience extreme prosecution, what steps is the Foreign Secretary taking to promote the importance of religious freedom in India?

As my hon. Friend knows, I have just asked Bishop Philip Mounstephen, Bishop of Truro, to do an independent report on what more we can do to support the quarter of a billion Christians across the world facing persecution, but in India the British high commission regularly meets minority communities, including Christian groups, and we have recently enabled training for 900 minority students on faith issues in six universities.
