These are the words of Iranian church leader Farshid Fathi who was amongst prisoners beaten after they protested against an aggressive inspection which lasted for over five hours.

“Today I celebrate our Lord's resurrection in a mixed feeling of joy and pain in a different way and in a different place.

My left foot is in a cast after they broke it last Thursday in violations they applied against helpless prisoners under the excuse of inspections. After three days of pain, finally they took me chained and shackled to a hospital on Easter morning.

Of course, we forgive them for all they have done to us because we are the followers of the One who says ‘Father, please forgive them because they don't know what they are doing’. So my dear friends, please in these days pray for me that I may know him and be found in him and the power of resurrection.

Happy Easter.”

We’re often asked how many Christians are killed worldwide for their faith. But what exactly does this mean - http://bit.ly/1gPMcx3

working for religious freedom through advocacy and human rights, in the pursuit of justice.
Introduction
CSW is a Christian organisation working for religious freedom through advocacy and human rights, in the pursuit of justice. 

Our primary work is advocacy, which we use to influence the legislation, policies, attitudes and behaviours which reinforce religious discrimination and persecution.  Through this, we aim to bring about lasting cultural, social and political change.
