Persecution of Christians is modern-day ‘genocide’ says report as Foreign Secretary blames failure to confront the oppression of world’s most targeted faith group on ‘political correctness’

- Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said that Christians were sometimes neglected
- New report reveals Christians are enduring genocide in some parts of the world
Christians are ‘by far the most persecuted’ religious group and are enduring what amounts to genocide in some parts of the world, a report concluded.
They are being driven out of the Middle East in a modern-day exodus that means the religion could be wiped out in parts ‘where its roots go back furthest’, the study commissioned by the Foreign Office found.
And the report by the Bishop of Truro, the Right Rev Philip Mounstephen, found ‘shocking’ evidence that the persecution is worse today than ever.
Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt last night blamed ‘political correctness’ for a failure to confront the oppression of Christians, which he called the ‘forgotten persecution’.
