(Kazakhstan)–Next, Keston News Service is reporting that the latest draft amendments to Kazakhstan’s 1992 law on religion will place the country among those former Soviet republics with the harshest climate for religious freedom. Some of the restrictions – such as registration being required – would violate Kazakhstan’s international human rights commitments. Following fine-tuning, the draft will be presented to parliament at the beginning of March. Please pray for the safety of believers in this country.
