Global Religious Restriction

Restrictions on religious practice are far from uncommon in today’s world. The Pew Research Center's Forum on Religion & Public Life has found that 64 nations, about one-in-three among the countries and territories covered by its 2009 Global Global Restrictions on Religion study, have high restrictions on religion either because of  government restrictions,  social hostilities or both. And because some of the most restrictive countries are very populous, that means about 70% of the world's population lives in countries with high or very high restrictions on religion, the brunt of which often fall on religious minorities.
