Kuwaiti believers from Muslim backgrounds face pressure from their families to deny their faith. For example, Christians who face very high pressure from their family cannot have an official Christian marriage or a Christian funeral. They also risk discrimination, harassment, police monitoring and intimidation by vigilante groups.
Christian migrant workers are free to worship informally, but their churches face many restrictions. Female workers are vulnerable to sexual harassment and abuse.
Reports of Christians being harmed, imprisoned or killed for their faith are rare.
Conversion from Islam to another faith is not officially recognized and is likely to lead to legal problems in personal status and property matters.
Evangelism is strictly forbidden, as is Christian education and religious literature that is considered offensive to Islam.
Expatriate Christians are relatively free to worship informally. However, the existing places registered for worship are very small for the number of people gathering, which can lead to tension between the different Christian groups. Obtaining property for gathering for worship is extremely difficult.
Kuwait’s 2-point increase is mainly due to access to new sources and a reassessment of the situation in the country. But as other countries also increase their scores, Kuwait holds its position in the list.
Open Doors supports the Body of Christ on the Arabian Peninsula through organizing prayer, distributing Scripture resources and training of believers and pastors. Detailed information on these programs is not made public, in order to protect the people involved.
