Barely months after a Christian man, Prem Singh Gurung, was sentenced to three years imprisonment for showing a film on Jesus, the Bhutanese police are still seeking to arrest two more Christians for similar offence, online edition of Allvoices reported Saturday. 

According to the news report, the Regional Manager for Africa and South Asia, International Christian Concern (ICC), Jonathan Racho said that ICC strongly condemn the Bhutanese government for imprisoning Gurung for three years for showing the film and hunting down two more Christians for participating in showing the film.

However, no details of those who have been hunted by the police have been furnished.

“We once again call upon the government of Bhutan to show their commitment to the international human rights law by releasing Gurung and not imprisoning the other two Christians,” he stated wrote the online.

It further said that On October 22, ICC wrote a letter to the representatives of Bhutan at the UN, protesting the sentencing of Gurung.

“We stated that Gurung has the right, under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, to express his religious beliefs, including the right to receive and impart information and ideas through any media,” added he.

As per this report, the Bhutanese officials defended the sentencing, stating that although they respect the freedom of religion, “no person shall be compelled to belong to another faith by means of coercion or inducement.”
