A report by InterNations that surveyed over 14,000 respondents found Taiwan to be the friendliest country in the world.

The ranking was based on ease of settling in and finding friends. Uganda and Costa Rica took the second and third spot respectively. Czech Republic, Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait were found to be the least friendly countries.

Pakistan sixth most dangerous country for Christians

Pakistan is ranked sixth on the list of countries where Christians are most persecuted, according to World Watch List 2016.

The survey, conducted by Open Doors, an organisation working to help persecuted Christians and churches worldwide, highlights the top 50 countries where it is most difficult to live as a Christian. The report found that Pakistan’s blasphemy laws continue to be abused to settle personal scores, particularly against minorities, including Christians.

“A pregnant woman and her husband were thrown into the kiln where they worked and burned to death after being accused of blasphemy, orphaning their four children. Two churches in Lahore were bombed, killing 25 people and wounding dozens. An estimated 700 Christian girls and women are abducted every year, and often then raped and forcibly married to Muslims,” the report adds.

The list ranks North Korea as the most oppressive place in the world to live as a Christian. It adds that in 2015, persecution grew most rapidly in sub-Saharan Africa, while in the Middle East, Islamic State violence increased the migration of the Christian population from the region.

The index measures the degrees of freedom that Christians have to express their faith in six spheres – private, family, community, national and church life, while also measuring levels of violence.

The ranking was based on ease of settling in and finding friends. Uganda and Costa Rica took the second and third spot respectively. Czech Republic, Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait were found to be the least friendly countries.
