Pressure is growing on the vulnerable churches of Sri Lanka. Buddhist nationalists have recently renewed their calls for laws against “forced” conversions, which if passed may be used to prohibit legitimate forms of Christian evangelism. In September 2011 the Ministry of Religious Affairs declared that its approval was required for building or maintaining places of worship. Some churches have had their applications to register with the state routinely rejected, and Christian individuals and organisations have had planning permission refused even for non-church buildings. Pray that the Christians will stand firm in their faith in the face of these restrictions, and that they may have the same freedoms as other citizens of Sri Lanka.
