  • Freedom of religion is compromised by a strong tendency for Indianization and by implication, Hinduism at the expense of Muslims and Christians.  All religious and missionary activity directed to evangelizing Hindus or Muslims is regarded with disfavor.
  • Among evangelicals, growth is most rapid within the charismatic groups.  Other evangelicals and independent house groups experience modest growth, but not without opposition. Subtle discrimination when applying for official permits - and more open hostility when sharing the gospel - are common.
