Believers from a Muslim Background face strong pressure from their family, friends and neighbours to recant their Christian faith. They are seen as not only leaving a religion, but as betraying their people and ethnicity. Christians are discriminated against in both their private and business lives. Children of Christians are facing discrimination and bias from teachers and fellow students in schools. Persecution is not particularly violent, but there has been an incident on 19 April 2015, however, where fifty protestors demonstrated against a church in Taman Medan and made the pastor take down the church’s cross. The incident was later regretted, however, by large parts of society.
