WASHINGTON, April 11, 2018 /Standard Newswire/ -- Rising religious persecution is one of many symptoms of Chinese President Xi Jinping's consolidation of power. The suspicious death of Li Baiguang in February 2018 was a stark reminder that persons of faith are far from safe in China. Chinese Christians, Uighur Muslims, Tibetan Buddhists, and Falun Gong practitioners have long experienced persecution, but restrictions on religious freedom in China are on the rise. The Heritage Foundation is hosting a discussion on the state of religious freedom in China to consider how the U.S. can respond to alleviate the plight of religious communities living under these dire conditions.
