Barnabas Aid LAUNCHES RIGHT TO JUSTICE CAMPAIGN

Barnabas Aid has launched its new international campaign on behalf of Christian minorities, called THE RIGHT TO JUSTICE.

Barnabas Aid is very concerned that whilst protection of Islam is increasingly high on the agenda of national and international bodies, protection of Christianity is not.

This must change if we are to see an end to the discrimination which leads to injustice both at the institutional and at the social level. Through the Right to Justice campaign we hope to see a move towards just and equal treatment for Christians living in non-Christian majority contexts.

The Right to Justice campaign has a twofold aim: Firstly, inform the elected representatives of governments in as many Western countries as possible of the widespread religious discrimination and injustices daily suffered by Christian minorities in many countries across the world.
Secondly, ask these governments to put pressure on the leaders of those countries where such discrimination and injustices occur to try to bring about an end to the sufferings of the Christian minority. Whilst Christians are persecuted in many different contexts Barnabas Aid is particularly concerned about the treatment of Christians in Islamic contexts.

Forming a central part to the campaign is a petition, which will be presented to the heads of governments in the UK, USA, Australia and New Zealand and other countries. The petition calls for:

• Christian minorities to receive just and equal treatment with non-Christian majorities.

• An end to the institutional and other religious discrimination which denies them equal rights and freedoms.

• Our national governments to raise this matter in the strongest of terms with representatives from the countries where Christians suffer daily discrimination and injustice.

SIGN ON-LINE

Information on the Right to Justice can be viewed on the campaign website, see link [1]. Here you can access the latest news from the campaign, find out how you can be involved, and sign the petition on-line. Alternatively you can request extra copies of the printed petition, which includes information about the campaign. The closing date for the petition is February 28th 2007, allowing plenty of time circulation amongst your church and Christian friends to gain momentum. However, please do sign the petition and return petition sheets promptly.

Barnabas Aid’s International Director Dr Patrick Sookhdeo says “We very much hope to make a change, given that such campaigns highlight and bring to the top of the public agenda the discriminatory nature of Islam and the sufferings of the Christian minority. We believe that such a position is now intolerable and must be addressed.”

    • Continue to remember Pastor Tandin Wangyal, who is serving a prison sentence of almost four years in the small nation of Bhutan, only because he received funds from outside the country to help support his ministry. Ask God to sustain our brother at this time, so that he will draw comfort from God’s grace. Pray that his faith will not fail. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed 16 hours ago

    • Dear Lord Jesus, we pray for freedom for the thousands of Eritrean Christian refugees who have fled from escalating anti-Christian persecution in their home country, and are being detained in prisons in Egypt. You said that You had been sent to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and to set the oppressed free. We especially ask your healing for women and men who have been raped in prison, and for your grace for those who have been kept chained for months, suffering hunger, torture and abuse. Please free these faithful ones, who suffer for Your Name. (Luke 4:18,21) Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Fri, Dec 2014 00:00

    • Praise God for the continued Christian presence in northern Mali, despite the apparent desire of jihadists to wipe it out. Most of the Christians who had fled the region when Islamist radicals took control in 2012 have now returned to their homes, after French troops ousted the Islamists. Many church buildings were desecrated, looted or severely damaged, but the Christians are determined to resume their ministries. Pray for their protection.

    • Continue to pray for church leaders in Christian-majority Burundi that they may have wisdom in responding to the unfamiliar situation of political restriction by their own government. A new law passed in August requires each church to have at least 500 members and a proper building; congregations were given a year to comply. Pray that religious liberty will be maintained in Burundi, both for Christians and for the small minorities who follow other religions. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Wed, Dec 2014 00:00

    • Heavenly Father, we pray to you for our Christian brothers and sisters in north-eastern Nigeria, who are so vulnerable in the face of attacks by Boko Haram militants. We remember especially those who used to live in Shani, in Borno state, until their town was raided by Boko Haram on 29 November. We cry out to You to intervene and bring an end to the murderous attacks by Boko Haram. We pray for all the thousands of Nigerian Christians who have suffered in similar attacks that they will not lose hope or faith in You, but will know Your peace which passes understanding.
