. . .In summary, one out of four of the countries that in 2006 were already showing severe restrictions on religious freedom have further worsened their standards in the following years.
But if one looks not at the individual countries, but at the number of inhabitants, the results of the [Pew Forum] survey are even more stunning: fully 59 percent of the world’s population today lives with “high” or “very high” levels of restrictions on religious freedom.
The religion that suffers most from this situation is Christianity. But Muslims are also victims of it. In Nigeria, the social conflict is with Christians, but elsewhere Muslims are subject to legal restrictions and violence, above all on the part of fellow Muslims. In Iraq, for example, there are many more victims from Islamist attacks on mosques than on churches. . .
