The following is a list of countries where persecution of Christians is dominant:

Comoro Islands
Equatorial Guinea
North Korea
Saudi Arabia
Sri Lanka
Tibet (China)
United Arab Emirates

In Afghanistan where Muslim rule is dominant, Women are not allowed to attend schools or hold jobs. Men are bound to strict Islamic code and are required to wear beards. Those who are not Muslims are denied freedom of assembly, and open profession of their own faith is likely to lead to death. In Algeria, the Islamic Salvation Front marches through towns, slitting the throats of those who do not live up to their idea of Islamic Fundamentalism. Muslims have bad memories of atrocities commited by previous "Christian" colonists making them want to destroy anything associated with Christianity. Many times, Christian girls are forced to marry Muslims and Christian families live in constant intimidation. Although Azerbaijan claims to give religious freedom, the majority of the population is becoming more Islamic and anti-Christian. Many Christians fled after the 1989 massacre. Now, many Christian churches are closed and few would feel safe attending them. Bangladesh also wants freedom of religion and does not condone persecution of anyone, but they cannot control it on a village-by-village level. Christians are not allowed to drink from local water wells. They have to walk (possibly) miles to the nearest river to drink, and even that may make them sick. They are robbed and beaten constantly, even by their own family members. Their rights to their land have been taken away by the villagers and no one is allowed to visit them. In Bhutan, all public worship and evangelism by non-Buddhists is illegal. Pastor Norbu who preached openly there was arrested and tortured in jail. After finally being released from prison, he died of a heart-attack 10 days later. In Brunei, Christian leaders were expelled in 1991. Christian literature and the celebration of Christmas is illegal. Conversing with Christians is restricted with Muslims. Muslims also control the school systems.

In China, more Christians are detained without a hearing than any other country. There, Christians are 're-educated' in labor camps. Christian leaders are arrested and condemned as rebels. Christians property is stolen, are beaten, and are thrown from their houses by police who give them only one warning. Although freedom of religion was also claimed by Cuba in 1992, still bibles are confiscated, Christians are imprisoned, and their churches destroyed all the time. "Mario Gomez began to show Christian videos in his home almost every day. According to the Communist government, this was a violation of religious freedom. Castro says Cubans are not allowed to learn about Christ in their own homes. Marco was sentenced to 18 months in prison for the crime of 'violation of the home.'"

Egypt's constitution givs preference to Muslims. Christians are not allowed to act politically and are discriminated against in employment. An 1865 Ottoman Empire law keeps churches from being built, rebuilt, or repaired without the president's permission. In 1997, Muslim militants killed 15 Christians in their plae of worship. Mohammed Wagdie Dorrah, a Muslim convert to Christianity, was arrested for encouraging division between Muslims and Christians after already being arrested for converting. He was tortured, beaten, and even hanged by his hands before they let him go. He was later arrested again for refusing to be a spy for the secret police and inform them about the Christain church and other Muslim converts.

In Indonesia, the Muslim government requires every one to carry a card that identifies their religious status. Although the government says it allows everyone to follow either Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, or Hinduism, Muslims still receive preferential treatment. Since 1996, Muslims have burned down over 50 church buildings in which many Christians have died. In 1997, a mob rioted in Banjarmasin. They set fire to a church and when they left, people hiding inside cam out to extinguish it. The mob came back and set fire to it again, and so the people tried to put it out again. This continued on until the military finally came and assisted them in putting out the fire. The mob was gone though. That same mob targeted another church except this time, the fire got out of control burning down, not only 14 churches, but several homes and a large shopping center. Hundreds of people were trapped inside the center and died. There have been many more mob attacks on Christian churches since.

In Iran there are constitutional guarantees of religious freedom but still, the Shiite Muslims are crushing any faith but Islam. The government sends spies to monitor on Christian groups. Christians are discriminated against in education, employment and property ownership. All open witnessing is banned and more murders of Christians (especially religious leaders) are occurring every year. In Iraq, religions are accepted by their level of loyalty to Saddam Hussein's regime. The import of Christian literature is banned and after the Persian Gulf war, Iraq killed certain ethnic groups, including Christians. Tens of thousands were gassed, shot, or forced to leave their homes. In Kuwait, Sunni Islam is the state religion. The government gives financial incentives to those claiming to be Muslim and has even gone so far as to purchase many, many Bibles in order to burn them.Christian worship is allowed only within the Christian community, which has literal, physical boundaries.

Mauritania has to be one of the most restrictive countries. Christian literature and broadcasting is illegal. People who even show a slight interest in the gospel are often arrested and tortured. By law, those who claim to be Christians face the death penalty.

In Pakistan blaspheming Mohammed is a crime punishable by death. Many who have been acquitted of such charges have been murdered by mobs after they were released. In 1997, Pakistani police started rumours that Christians had destroyed a Koran and littered it's torn pages in a Muslim mosque. A mob of 30,000 Muslims rained blows down upon the Christian villages. Nearly 15,000 Christians lost their homes and property. In the Philippines "a 10-year-old Filipino girl was beaten to death by her father after she professed Christ. Before she died, she held the bloody dress she was wearing when she was beaten and told the missionary, 'I just want Jesus to know that I was willing to bleed for him.'" Similar to other countries, persecution of Christians is regular there. In Saudi Arabia, missionaries face jail, expulsion, or execution for ministering. Unlike other countries like the United Arab Emirates, they do not allow even foreign Christians to worship there.

In North Vietnam, only 9 churches are legally allowed to be open. All other Christians must worship "illegally". Those worshipping illegally face harrassment, beatings, imprisonment, torture, and death. Even those worshipping legally are not safe from harrassment and beatings.

The worst of all, I'd have to say though, is Sudan. The Sudanese government has declared a "holy war" on the Christians and other non-Muslims. Not only have they took part in the false imprisonments, tortures, and murders of Christians but they have hurt the most people with their imposed famines. The government refuses food and medicine where the famines happen. The government has even sold thousands of children, some as young as 6, into slavery. During the years of this holy war "nearly 3 million African Sudanese have been killed, over five million displaced internally, another 1 million forced into refuge in neighboring countries."
