Many Afghan Christians have fled from the cities to remote regions to escape Taliban detection. See our full Afghanistan coverage here.
“The Taliban right now are hunting Christians door to door,” World Mission’s Greg Kelley says,
“I just heard [about] a Christian leader the Taliban caught, and on his phone was a sermon. They executed him in public after torturing him.”
Now, with the borders to neighboring countries closed, believers have nowhere to turn. With winter approaching, Christians in Afghanistan face extreme difficulties.
SAT-7 PARS executive director, Panayiotis Keenan, told Release International:
“Since the Taliban has taken over, we are receiving many messages from Afghanistan that the persecution is getting harder. Afghan Christians are contacting us on a daily basis, describing how difficult the situation is. They are hiding and meeting in secret locations. But winter is coming and that will soon become more and more difficult.”
