KYRGYZSTAN: VIDEOS BEING SHARED ENCOURAGING PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS

pattern

IN Kyrgyzstan Videos are being created calling for persecution towards Christians who’ve converted AWAY from Islam. As digital technology is increasingly being used to target Christians across Asia, believers ask for prayers for protection and strength. 

In these videos, Christian believers are called traitors of the nation and native faith. The creators of these videos are calling for people to break into Christian communities and churches to capture the faces of believers on video and then distribute their images online to encourage persecution.  

False information is also being spread that Christians are very aggressive and ready to attack members of other faiths.

Mahri’s relatives MONITOR her phone 

Sadly, technology is increasingly being used to target Christians across Asia. In China and Myanmar, the sophistication of surveillance tech is being used to track believers’ phones and online activity. But it’s not all about high tech surveillance. In Kygyztan less modern solutions are being used by families of Kyrgyz believers. 

Mahri* (24) used to go to church with her mother, a former Uyghur Muslim. Mahri’s mother’s relatives were completely against her Christian faith, and didn’t offer any help when Mahri’s dad passed away. 

Unfortunately, Mahri’s mother also died, and Mahri went to live with her aunt – who has completely forbidden her to believe in Jesus, attend house church meetings and have any communication with other believers. Every time Mahri leaves the house, her aunt bombards her with questions: “Where are you going? Who are you seeing?” Mahri’s phone is constantly checked, and she’s not even allowed to attend school. 

Recently, Mahri was able to attend church where she shared her situation. She’s understandably anxious and exhausted.  

Please pray for Mahri, and for all our persecuted family in Kyrgyzstan.
