(Kazakhstan)–Next, a proposed new religion law is now in the hands of Kazakhstan’s President. According to Christian Aid Mission, the new law could undermine religious freedom in that Central Asian country. The legislation, which has passed both houses of parliament and awaits the President’s signature, will require all missionaries to be registered and would allow other groups to be banned. Christian Aid’s Mike Clinton says, if the law is signed, it will hurt the spread of the Gospel for the timebeing.
