Saudi Arabia still bans Christians from worshipping in public
The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom recently updated their report on Saudi Arabia. The report notes conditions in the country “remained poor despite some ongoing improvements” since 2020.
Saudi Arabia has been limiting the role of some of its Islamic-based legal systems. However, religious minorities continue to face severe persecution, especially Christians.
Christians are banned from praying and worshipping in public or even building their own church structures. People accused of insulting Islam can face arrest, torture, and execution.
