That this House notes with concern the large number of Christians who are suppressed from practising their beliefs in countries such as China and India; recognises that as Christmas approaches, Christians around the world wish to celebrate the birth of Christ and promote the virtues of peace and love; expresses grave concern that basic human rights are suppressed; and calls on the Government to promote the virtues of religious tolerance so that Christians can not only celebrate Christmas but also practise their faith all year round.
