A document apparently leaked from the government of Myanmar alleges officials want to drive Christians from the Southeast Asian nation, a report says. The Sunday Telegraph said the leaked secret document, with the eye-opening title “Program to destroy the Christian religion in Burma,” reveals a plan by Myanmar’s military regime. Myanmar is the official name of what used to be called Burma. 

The shocking report, called “Carrying the Cross: The Military Regime’s Campaign of Restriction, Discrimination and Persecution against Christians in Burma,” cites Burmese documents with the headline “Program to Destroy the Christian Religion in Burma.” The government document begins with the quote, “There shall be no home where the Christian religion is practiced.” The comprehensive report looks at the military regime’s policies toward Christians as well as various ethnicities and religious followers such as Muslims and Buddhist monks who do not conform to the regime’s version of nationalistic beliefs. The report’s author, Christian Solidarity Worldwide’s advocacy officer for South Asia Benedict Rogers, says, “Burma’s people, of all religions and ethnicities, have suffered in silence for too long.” (Assist News Service)
