Religious liberty threatened in Nepal

Nepal is considering a law to prohibit proselytizing. Compass Direct News reported,

Article 160 of the proposed code also says no one will be allowed to do anything or behave in any way that could cause a person from a caste, community or creed to lose faith in his/her traditional religion or convert to a different religion. The proposal would also prohibit conversion “by offering inducements or without inducement,” and preaching “a different religion or faith with any other intent.”

This might well affect the work of our brethren there. Our good friend Mike Brooks has worked many years there. Let’s pray that the new constitution is passed that will guarantee religious liberties.

Perhaps Mike will chime in with a perspective on this development.
