WEA and WCC call on Algeria and India to respect rights of religious minorities

The World Evangelical Alliance and the World Council of Churches called on Algeria to cease all prosecutions against Christians and allow forcibly closed Protestant churches to reopen, and called India to ensure order and safety for the 2500 forcibly displaced Adivasi Christians of Chhattisgarh so that they can return home without the risk of being attacked on the basis of their religion.

The joint statement was made at the Human Rights Council 52nd session, during the General Debate under Agenda Item 4, on 22 March 2023.
