This makes it almost impossible for converts to reveal their conversion, which is why there are hardly any reports of Christians being killed or harmed for their faith.
Christian expatriates are free to worship in private but the government does not allow them to evangelize or pray in public.
Even as UAE’s score went up by 2 points, partly because of a reassessment of the situation in the country compared to neighbouring countries, it dropped two ranks. Several other countries, which had ranked lower than UAE a year ago, had even larger increases in their scores, so they rose above UAE on the list.
