Britain’s Prince Charles has urged Christians not to take for granted the freedom to practise their faith.
According to a report in MY Christian Daily, the future head of the Church of England pointed to extreme persecution against believers in the Middle East.
The Prince of Wales issued the stark warning after meeting Christian children forced from their homes by the conflict in Iraq and Syria.
The prince says, it’s heart-breaking beyond words to see just how much pain and suffering is being endured by Christians, simply because of their faith.
More than 700,000 Christians have left Syria during the six year conflict, while the major city of Aleppo has shed 75 per cent of its Christian population.
His latest comments come a year after he told the BBC that anti-Christian persecution was being overlooked.
