(Worthy News) - Nepali Christians are facing new pressures from their government after authorities deported a Christian couple for evangelizing Hindus.
Immigration officials said the two foreigners had violated terms of their business visa, but a Nepali religious freedom advocate told CBN News the couple had a right to practice their faith.
BP Khanal, General Secretary of the Janjagaran Party said government officials reached their decision based on media reports, not facts when they sent Filipino De Vera Richard and his Indonesian wife, Rita Gonga packing. [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
