What Does Persecution Look Like?
In Vietnam, evangelical and charismatic Protestants—along with converts from indigenous religions—often face intense pressure and violence for their faith, especially in remote areas. Believers are harassed in the workplace, and Christian children are ostracised at school.
Since religion is closely identified with ethnicity in these regions, leaving a traditional belief for Christianity may be seen as betrayal of culture and community. Therefore, Christians who belong to the country’s ethnic minorities often face social exclusion, discrimination, and attacks.
