Buddhists in Laos took away a Christian man’s medication and deprived him of the medication, watching him and letting him die. This is another reminder to all of the morons who think Buddhism is a peaceful religion:
A devoted Christian from the village of Huey in Savannakhet province, Laos, has died after his release from prison, where authorities denied him vital diabetes medication and watched him visibly deteriorate without helping. Human rights groups have said that the man, Tiang Kwentianthong, was arrested nine months ago after he was caught praying for a sick woman.
“Mr. Tiang Kwentianthong, a Christian believer of Huey village in Atsaphangthong district of Savannakhet province … died on Sept. 17 from his diabetic condition that had become very severe,” Human Rights Watcher for Lao Religious Freedom said in a statement, as reported by BosNewsLife.
The 61-year-old Tiang, who needed but was denied his diabetes medication on a regular basis, “continued to suffer severe diabetes. During his imprisonment … he requested permission to be treated for his worsening diabetic condition but the prison officials denied his request,” the group added.
Tiang was married and was the father of six children, AsiaNews noted.
He was arrested in Savannakhet nine months ago when he and four other Christian men visited a local woman who had recently converted to Christianity and had asked for prayers for healing. The woman later died despite the prayers, it was reported.
Any kind of Christian activities, including public prayer, require government approval in Laos, a predominantly Buddhist nation of 7 million people. Christians who pray in public without this permission are often jailed. They make up a distinct minority of the population at less than 2 percent.
