CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION STATUS
In a population of more than 33 million, there are only 2,000-6,000 Moroccan Christians. 99% of the current population is Sunni Muslim, with the remainder consisting of a significant Jewish minority. Local Christian groups and some other minorities are refused official registration and cannot operate legally. Moroccan believers are subject to government surveillance and are occasionally detained and questioned. Fearing pressure from family, some believers follow Jesus in complete secrecy.
Although Morocco has made economic progress in recent years, unemployment remains high, especially among young people. The literacy rate remains at 69%. Approximately 19.6 million Moroccans have access to the internet. Surveys conducted in 2008 show that 7.6% of Morocco’s population have watched or watch SAT-7.
