Where Religious Hostility is on the Rise

The BBC video above and  the Pew chart below show you which areas of the world have the most government restrictions toward religion and which societies have the most social restrictions. This all comes from a study form the Pew Center for Religion and Public Life.

The study shows and  the video highlights the fact that hostility toward religion is at a six-year high. That hostility happens the most in Egypt and China.

In other countries, society itself is hostile to certain religions. Pakistan, as the chart below shows, is the most hostile.

Which religions are harassed the most? Coptic Christians in the Middle East and Muslims in Burma are among the most harassed.
