Christian Refugees Forced to Participate in Islamic Prayers

Christian asylum-seekers in Germany are regularly bullied, beaten and forced to participate in Muslim prayer services, according to a report released this week.

There are currently more than one million migrants and refugees living in Germany, the vast majority of whom are Muslims. The new report, titled “Religiously motivated attacks on Christian refugees in Germany” was prepared by the humanitarian relief organization Open Doors, and documents a sharp increase in aggression and violence towards Christians in the refugee centers.

Particularly under attack are Christian converts from Islam, who are considered apostates by the Muslim migrants.

Thomas Muller, an Open Doors persecution analyst, said that “Christian refugees—especially those who are converts to the Christian faith—live in fear of persecution from Muslim refugees who make up the majority of residents in the refugee hostels set up throughout Europe.”
