Qatar: Addressing the limitations of religious freedom for Bahá’is and Christians

Dutch ECR MEP Bert-Jan Ruissen, together with NGO Open Doors, will host a discussion focused on the situation of Christians and Baha'i in Qatar and what the EU could do to promote freedom of belief in the country.

Currently, all eyes are on Qatar for the World Cup, partly because of the deaths of many construction workers building the stadiums. An underexposed problem in Qatar, however, is that Christians and Baha’i in Qatar do not have the freedom to express their faith. Moreover, apostasy (changing religion from Islam) is a criminal offence and even punishable by death. During the event, several pastors that have been expelled from Qatar will share their experiences.
