Donors to religious organisations could be threat

The Home Ministry has warned the religious organisations not to invite any donors or religious personalities from abroad who would cause ‘threat to the national security’.

The religious organisations are allowed to receive donations from abroad to carry out their activities. The donors they invite to country are waived off the daily tariff of $250.

There are about 127 registered religious organisations across the country.

Home Minister Damchoe Dorji sees the possibilities of foreign threats coming to Bhutan under the disguise of donors to religious organisations. He did not mention explicitly but hinted at possible Christian donors who have been raising voices against discrimination Christians in Bhutan are facing.

Bhutan accepts only Hinduism and Buddhism to be practiced in the country.
