UN guilty of ‘overall failure to protect religious freedom’, claims report

By Christian Today

The United Nations is failing to protect religious freedom and guard against the rise in anti-conversion laws, a damning report launched next week claims.

Several Indian states, Nepal, Myanmar and Bhutan have all passed laws restricting conversion from one religion to another with the aim of promoting a national identity around one particular faith. However the laws amount to a blatant contravention of human rights, the report by ADF International says.
