The Situation of Christians in Central and South Asia

Christians overall in South and Central Asia belong to a small minority, whose number lies nearly exclusively in the one figure percentage. Even if there may be not many Christians in South- and Central Asia, there are many different denominations. Freedom of religion is mentioned in all constitutions of the twelve Central and South Asia states. Christians are being attacked violently time and again in some countries of South Asia. But such persecutions are mainly conducted by nationalistic or religious extremists, less from the state itself.
