Although conversion is not forbidden by law, Christian converts from Islam or Buddhism face strong pressure from their family, friends and neighbours to recant their Christian faith. Christians are discriminated against in both their private and business lives. Children of converts are facing discrimination and bias by teachers and fellow students in schools.
