Christians from Muslim backgrounds often hide their faith and meet in secret. If discovered, they could face rejection from their family, or be forced to divorce their partner. Occasionally they may be sent to a re-education camp, or simply disappear.
Churches are monitored by the government, and it is illegal to share the gospel with Malay Muslims.
That the fate of Pastor Raymond Koh, abducted in February 2017, is still not clear and the country`s human rights commission in its final report declared that the Special Branch of the police was involved in the abduction, sent chills into the Christian community.
Every ethnic Malay is expected to be Muslim, so converts from Islam to Christianity experience most persecution. They are seen to be flouting not only the Constitution, but also society at large and of course, family and neighbourhood. Roman Catholics and Methodists are watched by the authorities and non-state organizations, but non-traditional Protestant groups are more often targeted as these tend to be more active in testifying about their faith.
Scores rose in every non-violence category, pushing Malaysia up two spots on the list.
Open Doors is helping to strengthen the Church living under Islamic governance and racial/religious discrimination, in addition to an increasing threat from the Islamic State group.
