Even as many Arab states have succumbed to sectarian violence and political tumult, the Sultanate of Oman has stood out as a beacon of tranquillity and tolerance. The constitutional provision regarding religious freedom is full of contradictions. On the one hand, it provides for religious freedom, and on the other, it puts restrictions stating that the practice of freedom of religion should not violate established customs, public policy or public morals. In Oman, Christians face the strongest persecution in the private sphere followed by the church sphere. Believers from a Muslim Background face strong persecution mainly from family, community leaders, and government officials.
