Behnam Irani, a pastor who leads the 300-member Church of Iran in Karaj, has been sentenced to six years in prison for spreading Christianity in the nation. Despite the hope that the new President, Hassan Rouhani, would be more tolerant, the Iranian regime has been cracking down harder on Christians. Boz News states that this is because of concern about a growing number of Muslims embracing the Christian faith, with numbers ranging from 100,000 to several times that figure.
