  • Leader: President Bidhya Devi Bhandari
  • Population: 29.2 million (1.2 million Christians)
  • Main Religion: Hinduism
  • Country fact sheet

While the constitution states that Nepal is a secular state, it is illegal to convert to any religion other than Hinduism.

Radical Hindus have physically attacked Christians, and are able to act with impunity. Christians struggle to obtain land where they can bury their dead, and often resort to burying people illegally in the forest; if this is discovered, radical Hindus have been known to dig the bodies up and take them back to the homes of Christians or leave them in the street.

 

How Open Doors helps:

Open Doors works through church partners to support believers in Nepal with Bibles and Christian books, training, livelihood projects, relief aid and legal support.
