2 Christians Arrested in Iran

2 Christians arrested in Iran because of their religions.

Mansour Borji, One of the leaders of Iranians church in London confirmed this news and said there is a direct relation between the custody of these people with their religions. Ladan and Houman recently changed their religions to Christian from Islam. Police arrested them on Farvardin 26. They were residents of Isfahan.

Borji also said there is not any exact number of Christians arrested by police but until now we have notified about ten of them.

According to Iran’s constitution, Christian is one of the approved religions in country but during the recent years authorities have applied more restrictions on Christians.

Mansour Borji said currently 9 Christians are arrested and sent to jail in Tehran.

The Ministry of Intelligence and National Security of the Islamic Republic of Iran (MISIRI), asked churches to stop their services in Persian languages in the last year but many of churches blamed the Ministry on this decision and they still hold their sessions in Persian.
