The regime will do everything possible to stay in power – all forms of opposition and deviations from the norm will be ruthlessly attacked. Christianity is regarded as an alien and destabilising factor. On top of this Believers from a Muslim Background (BMBs) experience additional pressure from their social and cultural environment.
