5/23/2024 Myanmar (International Christian Concern) According to the Burma Human Rights Network’s (BHRN) April 2024 update report, the Tatmadaw military junta forces are continuing to destroy churches and persecute Christians as they fight pro-democracy forces throughout Burma, now known as Myanmar.

The BHRN, a London-based group focused on human rights, minority rights, and religious freedom in Myanmar, publishes monthly reports and statistics regarding the ongoing war in the country. In the religious freedoms section of the April 2024 report, they noted serious persecution incidents for Christians, Buddhists, and Muslims.  

Regarding Christians, the report detailed the following:

  • Junta troops used a drone to destroy a church in a village in Kalay Township in Sagaing Region on April 8. 
  • The junta ransacked 400 homes and five churches in a raid on a village in Kalay Township in Sagaing Region on April 12. 
  • On April 23, local authorities banned gatherings of more than five people in Ha-Kha Township in Chin State. Sources told the BHRN that this move is to prevent churches from gathering.
