(Christian Today) – The severe persecution of Christians in parts of South East Asia and China was highlighted by MPs in a House of Commons debate last Wednesday 13th July, according to the UK-based human right watchdog Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW).
David Drew MP (Labour, Stroud) introduced the debate, beginning with an overview of the situation in South East Asia and China , focusing in particular on Vietnam , according to CSW.
Drew has explained many instances of persecution, which he described as the “awful cases of the most direct action against Christians”, including the deliberate withholding of aid by the Vietnamese Government from Christians in many parts of Vietnam.
“Whether we are a Christian or follower of another religion or none, we should never lose sight of what is happening to Christians in other parts of the world,” Drew said thoughtfully. He appealed to the British Parliament to take action against the alleged persecution of Christians by Vietnamese authorities.
