What would you do if your government blamed ISIS killings on your occupation?
Many Chinese Christians are now terrorized with threats to their own safety for speaking out against the Chinese government’s response to the murders of Christian missionaries Meng Lisi and Li Xinheng. When ISIS kidnapped Meng and Li on May 24, China refused to assist the Pakistani military in the rescue attempts or conduct any of their own.
What’s worse, after the Islamic State announced they had killed Meng and Li, a state-run paper blamed their murders on their “illegal missionary work” and accused the Korean missionaries with whom they were affiliated of encouraging them.
Instead of taking responsibility for their actions, China is currently pressuring Christians into silence. Four of those who have tried to speak out against the government’s behavior have already been detained, violating their right to speak up on behalf of their fellow believers.
That’s where you come in. When you read and share the stories of persecution, you are raising a voice on behalf of the voiceless and fulfilling ChinaAid’s mission to expose the Chinese government’s abuses and encourage the abused.
