- Religious Affair Ministry, Myanmar
This petition is to reflect the opinion of the citizens of Myanmar worldwide on the new law, Religious Conversion Bill draft to be passed by the government.
We are against this bill since we found it unconstitutional, undemocratic, and unnecessary. This bill can indirectly impact the religious freedom currently enjoyed by people in Myanmar and the rest of the world.
Myanmar's government is trying to measure public support for a religious conversion bill put forward by nationalist Buddhist monks that would require anyone who wants to convert to another faith to get permission from local authorities.
If passed, anyone found guilty of proselytizing could face up to a year in prison.
We the undersigned call on the Myanmar Government to not implement the Religious Conversion Bill.
The No to Religious Conversion Bill-draft petition to Religious Affair Ministry, Myanmar was written by Salai Thang and is in the category Civil Rights at GoPetition.
