Boko Haram impact on religion in spotlight in US

05 April 2016, 19:22

Lagos – The terror perpetrating by the militant Boko Haram sect is among issues on the spotlight when experts converge in the United States to discuss prevailing global security issues.

The Family Research Council (FRC), an American conservative Christian group and lobbying organisation, will host several leading authorities on religious freedom to discuss the rapid rise in persecution in key regions around the world.

Former US Congressman, Frank Wolf, will discuss the situation in Nigeria, the West African country where the Boko Haram has killed thousands of civilians in a violent mission to carve an Islamic state.

More than 2 million others have been displaced amid a reign of terror that has not spared worshippers.

Among other issues, the panel will discuss what actions can be taken in the wake of the State Department’s recent genocide declaration concerning Islamic State of Iraq and Syria’s (ISIS’) policy of murdering Christians and other religious minorities.

The problems in Iraq and Pakistan will also feature in the event set for Washington.

Among other experts include Travis Weber, FRC’s Director of the Center for Religious Liberty, Dr. Thomas Farr, Director of the Religious Freedom Project at the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs at Georgetown University.
