Muslim Violence against Christians in Dutch Asylum Centers

In 21 out of 28 Dutch asylum centers, Christian asylum seekers are being threatened. In 1 out of 3, there is physical violence against them, usually by Muslim asylum seekers there. This was found by research from the Stichting Gave, a Christian organization which helps asylum seekers. A large majority of Parliament has asked the minister of immigration and asylum, Gerd Leers (Christian Democrat), to investigate the matter. Parliamentarian Joël Voordewind says that it is “terrible that people who often flee to the Netherlands because of their beliefs, and who should be safe here, are being oppressed.”
