Are registration requirements employed to impede the free functioning of religious institutions? Are members of religious groups, including minority faiths and movements, harassed, fined, arrested, or beaten by the authorities for engaging in their religious practices?Is state monitoring of peaceful religious activity so indiscriminate, pervasive, or intrusive that it amounts to harassment or intimidation?

Does the government control or restrict the production and distribution of religious writings or materials? Is the construction of religious buildings banned or restricted? Does the government place undue restrictions on religious education? Does the government require religious education?
