Maldives

The Maldives are well-known as a dream destination for holidays. The islands are located in the midst of the Indian Ocean, surrounded by blue water and white beaches stretched out under the blazing sun. This is the picture authorities want to give to the outside world. The harsh attitude the government takes towards all Christian believers is less known, darkening the lovely picture of the country considerably. Nothing substantial has changed during the last reporting period, resulting in no changes in ranking or points for the Maldives on the 2012 World Watch List.
As every Maldivian citizen has to be Muslim, all deviant religious convictions are strictly forbidden. The government does not distinguish between national and expat believers. The tiny number of indigenous believers is not able to meet publicly, let alone worship together. On the contrary, they have to practice their faith in utmost secrecy, always in fear of being discovered. While the authorities closely monitor all religious activities that they perceive to be suspicious, social control also remains extremely high. Maldivian citizens agree with the heavy handed authorities because they see freedom of religion as freedom to discuss religious issues related to Islam. This freedom was non-existent under the former regime governing the country. Maldivian society demonstrates this attitude towards all kinds of beliefs or convictions, be it Christianity or Atheism. Additionally, the government has increased control of all media.
According to an amendment made to the "Protection of Religious Unity Act" in September 2011, every person must avoid creating hatred towards people of other religions. While this may initially sound good, it effectively reinforces the existing government policy that Islam is an inseparable part of a Maldivian's cultural identity. The legislation, forbidding the practice of any religion except Islam, is thus confirmed once again. Commentators therefore stated that the official direction religion is taking in the country will be toward Deoband Islam, the same ideology which informs the Taliban's convictions.
The Maldivian government views itself as the protector and defender of Islam. This was recently demonstrated by the imprisonment of a foreign Christian teacher, who was detained and deported from the country after allegations that he had stored Christian material on a school computer. Although no converts were killed for their faith in the past year, pressure on them remains very high.
Given the sternness of the government and the support it enjoys by Maldivian citizens, it cannot be expected that there will be substantial changes in the years to come. Maldivian authorities capitalize on the remoteness of the Islands to keep a powerful grip on all perceived religious deviations.

    UNIUS REI VS NIMROD BAAL IMF 666 -- Micah 5:1-6 [a]Marshal your troops now, city of troops, for a siege is laid against us. They will strike Israel's ruler, on the cheek with a rod. 2. "But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans[b] of Judah, out of you will come for me, one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times." 3. Therefore Israel will be abandoned until the time when she who is in labor bears a son, and the rest of his brothers return, to join the Israelites.

    God the Creator of the heavens and the earth and man said in the Holy Quran. (83) Say (O Muhammad): We believe in Allah (God) and That Which is revealed unto us and revealed unto Abraham and Ishmael That Which Was and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and That Which Was vouchsafed unto Moses and Jesus and Their prophets from the Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and unto Him we have surrendered. (84)Surah Al-E-Imran - ANSWER - IF YOU were doing the works of God and the prophets? you would never have killed innocent people (Christians), but Satan is your father, because you do the same works that murderer of Muhammad had done, in fact, you do not follow the teachings of Jesus, it is impossible for a Muslim to enter, in heaven if despise the Bible, or the Gospel, but many Muslims Satanists, they burn the Bible and the Gospel!

Both And they used to eat (earthly) food. See how We make the revelations clear for them, and see how they are turned away! (75) Surah Al-Maeda: in = jesus bible say = This is eternal life: that they may know You the only true God and Jesus Christ Whom you have sent, but, Christians worship messenger. - ANSWER - you will not be condemned for being a Muslim, because Muslims good people? go to Heaven, you will be condemned, because, not having, received a divine revelation, you personally, as many Muslims, who have become Christians, you judge the infinite things of God, to do harm to innocent people on matters of conscience

How the World Watch List is constructed?

The unique list, begun by the Open Doors Research Department in 1991, seeks to understand the unique persecution fingerprint of each country. This is to ensure effective intervention since Open Doors ministers to the persecuted church in over fifty countries worldwide. The data is derived from a questionnaire containing fifty-three questions sent to Open Doors co-workers, key church leaders, and recognized experts in seventy countries. The questionnaire examines every aspect of persecution, including the degree of legal restriction, state attitudes, how free the church is to organize itself, as well as noting incidents of persecution such as church burnings, anti-Christian riots, and even martyrdoms. Open Doors is uniquely situated to provide this research as it is the world's largest missions agency working on behalf of the persecuted, and of the top fifty countries Open Doors preserves an active program in forty six of them.
Why is North Korea number one?
