Since 2014, India’s government has been suppressing all religious minorities, including Christians. Hindu nationalists often use social media to spread misinformation about Christians so that they will face discrimination.
In Nepal, officials have harassed pastors and Christians. Nepal’s criminal code changes in 2017 legitimized this persecution. The government also does nothing to stop the spread of stigmatizing misinformation about Christians online.
The World Evangelical Alliance called out both India and Nepal for inaction, disregard, and even complicity in these misinformation campaigns.
