This is a petition site that anyone can use specifically for petitions to help Christians. You may put on petitions for Christians and we especially welcome petitions for Persecuted Christians and those who are being challenged in their faith! We welcome petitions for home and house churches, and the right to freedom of religion. We also hope for petitions to help teens and college students to establish independent interdenominational student worship centers.
CHRISTIAN PETITION SITE~FALL OF 2012~
Please feel free to post your petions on this thread~
Makhset is a former Uzbek house church pastor from Uzbekistan who was arrested and brought into court six times! Following a police raid on his family’s apartment in 2007, the Djabbarbergenov’s fled to Kazakhstan where they applied for asylum through the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
The UNHCR determined that the family qualified because they would face prosecution due to their Christian faith should they return to Uzbekistan.
Unfortunately, the Kazakh government disagreed and has ruled against Makhset at several turns. His case now rests before the country’s highest court, which has yet to set a date for his extradition hearing.
Uzbekistan wants Makhset repatriated to face charges that he practiced religion outside of state regulations. The two charges awaiting him in Uzbekistan each carry a maximum penalty of three years in prison.
