Somalia - Nation's Largest Christian Library Destroyed

 

Christians struggling for survival and recognition in primarily Muslim Somalia have suffered another setback at the hands of al-Qaeda back militants.

 

Late last year, the most comprehensive Christian library in the nation was razed by members of the Islamic group, Fighters of Al-Shabaab. The building, which also housed an underground Bible college was completely destroyed and many of the books were burned.

 

 

The library, located on an unused farm along the Juba River in Luuq, was destroyed and theDestroyed Library in Luuq District militants brought Bibles, Christian books, and audio/video materials to the city center and burned them after the Muslim noon prayer.

 

There is also concern about the whereabouts of the man responsible for the library. "We have the information that the guardian of the library, who is a Christian man, fled the area hours after the library was found by the Islamists" says International Christian Concern (ICC) representative Jonathan Rocha. The man has not been seen since and local Christians fear he may have been harmed. "All of the Christians inside Somalia are converts from Islam, and, as you know, converting from Islam is a crime, according to Islam, which is punishable by death."

 

Somali Christians often bury their Bibles and other Christian materials to avoid persecution. Al-Shabaab has threatened to kill every Christian in Somalia and turn it into a hard-line Islamic nation. Somalia has not had a stable, functioning government in over 20 years, and the Western-backed government is constantly under threat from local militants.

Anti-Christian Rhetoric and Persecution in Iran: Since the arrests of more than 120 Iranian Christians in December and January, anti-Christian rhetoric among Iran’s religious and political leaders has intensified. Many Christians fear that influential religious leaders will instigate increased, oppressive efforts to counter the growth of house churches. According to an article published last week, “Iran’s radical Islamist theocracy has been a particularly egregious abuser of the fundamental freedom of religion or belief, detaining, torturing, and executing people based on religious identity.” A number of Christians remain in harsh prison conditions despite a lack of formal charges and trials.

World’s Worst Religious Persecutors: Doug Bandow, an expert in International Religious Freedom, published an article last week about countries that persecute their religious minorities. Bandow states that the measurement of a government’s legitimacy is largely found in whether it protects basic human rights, at the heart of which lies religious liberty. He proceeds to summarize the abuses of the worst religious persecutors in the world—countries like North Korea, Eritrea, Nigeria, Iran, and China. The article concludes by stressing that a free nation like the United States must denounce persecution abroad and tenaciously defend religious liberty at home. Read the article>>   [ send green star]  [ accepted]
