Jehovah's Witnesses, tortured, harassed, fined and imprisoned in Uzbekistan

The history of Jehovah's Witnesses in Uzbekistan

In Uzbekistan all exercise of freedom of religion or belief with others without state permission is illegal, Forum 18 News Service’s religious freedom survey notes, including sharing any beliefs with anyone and meeting with others for worship or the study of sacred texts in private homes. State officials frequently violate freedom of thought, conscience and belief and interlinked rights such as the freedoms of expression and association – even though the state has made solemn binding commitments to uphold and protect the exercise of human rights.
