n International Journal for Religious Freedom - Religious liberty on the web portal of a national evangelical alliance : case study




As a complement to the article of Godfrey Yogarajah on Sri Lanka, the editors have chosen to document the activities of one Evangelical Alliance in Asia on behalf of religious liberty in their country and region. It is striking to observe how the intervention in the areas of Religious Liberty / Human Rights and Peace / Reconciliation are intertwined. The Alliance members raise their voice for a murdered pastor as well as for executed Red Cross workers or expelled Tamil labourers. They mobilise Christians in interdenominational cooperation as well as for prayer and fasting. They report on individual cases as well as addressing public policy issues. They also look beyond their own country by hosting a Training of Trainers Seminar on the theology of persecution for Christian leaders from other Asian countries.
