Freedom of religion

human right to practice, or not, a religion without conflict from governing powers

When people have freedom of religion, they can either belong to any religion they choose, or belong to no religion.

Where there is no freedom of religion, people can be punished and persecuted for not having the right religion. Some countries such as Iran, Burma, Cuba, North Korea, Saudi Arabia and China have also punished people for religious activities.
