Bibles Now Prohibited in Uzbekistan

Uzbekistan appears to be taking the repression of Christians one step further.

Joel Griffith with Slavic Gospel Association explains, "It seems the authorities are going into private homes and actually confiscating religious books from these homes during the raids they make; and they're also threatening fines."

The case stems from a series of recent raids, as reported by Forum 18 News. Based on the details of the case, Forum 18 began questioning the apparent violations of due legal process, denials of legal representation, misrepresentation defendant pleas, untimely verdicts, and so-called "expert analyses" that confused Protestant books with Jehovah's Witness books.

Griffith notes, "Police confiscated one Bible in the Uzbek language, and then there was a Bible in the Russian language that was confiscated. Then, from one Protestant home, reportedly, a book by John Bunyan was confiscated." It ...

No Bible, I have little doubt the statistics you gave were accurate, and so called secular states that has a majority of Muhammadans spiral into the black hole of the Inadequacy of Islam.

The headline is misleading and fraudulent, coming largely from a group that financially benefits from people sending money to them as they track "Christian persecution".

Read even their own blog article and myths are exposed (like the comment below) and the headline shown to be gross exaggeration.

The government is largely *secular* and is afraid of Islamic or other religious extremism, and therefore literature considered seditious, inflammatory, or might tend to insurrection. Is there not a hint that the title of the Bunyan book was suppressed in this article? What if it was his book called "Holy War"? Would that not be treated (ignorantly of course) as possibly like a Christian Jihad title? They are cracking down on Jihadist literature, so of course they would confiscate (as governments get paranoid, like even the U.S. government has since 9/11) anything that would be controversial or in an unknown language.

2 Bibles taken that were in foreign languages (not understood by police) is not "Bibles now prohibited", and no such law has been passed. If this is "persecution" (with only fines, not bodily arrest or harm) it would be mild; but is rather based upon mistaken notions and misunderstanding of literature during "terrorism" paranoia measures, hyped by the West.

"Islam is by far the dominant religion in Uzbekistan, as Muslims constitute 90% of the population while 5% of the population follow Russian Orthodox Christianity, and 5% of the population follow other religion according to a 2009 US State Department release.[72] However, a 2009 Pew Research Center report stated that Uzbekistan's population is 96.3% Muslim.[73] An estimated 93,000 Jews were once present in the country.

"Although constitutionally maintaining rights to freedom of religion, Uzbekistan maintains a ban on all religious activities not approved by that state, with particularly harsh treatment of Protestant Christians being commonplace."

That Bibles are prohibited would not be news for this country.
