Today I went to the Open Doors UK event in Parliament about the persecution of Christians in Northern Nigeria. As a strong advocate of religious freedom around the globe I believe that we all have a right to practice our own faith, no matter where we are born or what our faith is.
Religions promote tolerance, peace and encourage their worshippers to live by a moral code. It is crucial that we do not associate religion with extremism which can hide behind religion. I have recently submitted a Written Question on what the UK government is doing to support the Open Doors UK work to tackle the persecution of Christians in other nations.
