More than 3,000 Christians are being held captive as prisoners in underground dungeons, metal shipping containers, and military barracks. Hundreds of which, have already died due to the harsh conditions of persecution in Eritrea. These martyrs, who have been tortured and killed in secret by the country's tyrannical regime, will forever remain unindentified. Communism is practiced in the Eritrean constitution, restricting the religious freedom of its citizens. The government considers most forms of worship to be illegal; therefore resulting to a continually growing rate of mass arrests in the present year.

Christian persecution remains high in the country of India, particularly in the state of Orissa. An alarming outbreak of religious violence on Christians has been recorded; the highest level arising during the year of 2008. Incidents regarding arrests, physical harassment, abductions/kidnappings, and attacks on churches have allegedly been reported. Among the worst attacks was when Hindu radicals killed over 100 Christians and forced more than 55,000 to leave their homes. Churches have been demolished, Bible colleges have been vandalized, and the lives and properties of Christians remain unsafe within the land. These problems still linger as the government remains slow and hesitant in addressing the issue.

With Islam as their primary religion, it is no wonder that Afghanistan would require its own leaders to be of the same faith. However, there is no reason for them to begin banning and persecuting those of other religions. The establishment of Afghani churches are forbidden; only some are kept underground in secret and even then, lack necessary resources such as pastors and Bibles. Apostasy and blasphemy against the Islamic faith will be immediately punishable by death. Christians in Afghanistan must then resort to concealing their true identities.
