Christians who share their faith, and converts from Islam, face constant scrutiny. To be considered Tajik is to be Muslim, so becoming a Christian brings shame on the family. The small number of believers from Muslim backgrounds often hide their faith for fear of punishment. Church groups must be registered and sermons must be approved.

The government puts heavy pressure on all “deviating” groups by tightening and strictly enforcing restrictive laws. Indigenous Christians with a Muslim background bear the brunt of persecution both at the hands of the state and from family, friends and community. Russian Orthodox churches experience the least problems from the government because they do not usually attempt to make contact with the Tajik population. The ambiguous youth law has left Christians and other religious minorities in legal limbo.
