Read Violations of Religious Freedom Widespread in Uzbekistan, by International Christian Concern, at persecution.org.
"Uzbekistan officials continue to persecute Christians for possession of Bibles and other religious paraphernalia. Four Baptists were stopped at customs while traveling into Uzbekistan for their Bibles, Baptist magazines, calendars, DVDs, etc. They were fined somewhere between 5 to 10 times their monthly salary. An elderly woman with Parkinson’s disease had her house raided by officials claiming they were performing an “anti-terror cleansing”. Not only did they tear her house apart but they fined her 10 times a monthly salary for her possession of a Bible. Christians are not a threat to the Uzbekistan government, this persecution is ultimately counterproductive."
