Persecution In Iran

Christians are the most persecuted religious minority group in Iran. Iranian believers who convert from Islam to Christianity, face even more scrutiny.

 Now one television channel operating from multiple secret locations is beaming messages of hope directly into the Islamic country.

 Since 2006, Mohabat TV has been beaming Christian programmes via satellite to the Middle East, Europe, and parts of Asia. But the channel’s main focus is the Islamic nation of Iran.

 “We are seeing a huge, huge number of Iranians who are reaching out to our channel to find out more about Jesus,” Mike Ansari, who oversees the popular channel, said.

 “Many of our viewers claim that Islam has not delivered to their expectations. When they turn the channel on and see Mohabat TV they hear a new message of Jesus, of forgiveness, of love, of acceptance,” Ansari said.
