Uganda has been ranked among the top 10 countries in the world where people are experiencing the highest levels of social hostilities involving faith.

According to a report published 15 July, 2019 by The Pew Research Center, a nonpartisan American fact tank based in Washington, D.C., Uganda had some of the largest increases in social hostilities related to religious norms most especially in 2017.

To provide a broader understanding of how the global situation has changed, the report, entitled, “A Closer Look at How Religious Restrictions Have Risen Around the World,” covered a 10-year span, from 2007 to 2017.

The study tracked 198 countries within five particular regions: the Americas, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Middle East-North Africa and sub-Saharan Africa. The study broke down the two indexes, government restrictions and social hostilities, into four categories each.
