North Korea Releases Human Rights Report About Themselves

Freedom Of Religion And Thought

North Korean Human Rights - cult of leader

It is the freedom of a person to choose his or her religion and thought. That is why the international human rights laws require the issues of religion and thought to be solved according to every individual’s free will, not by coercion of the state or others. In the DPRK everybody is fully provided with the rights to choose and follow their own religion and thought according to their own free will. Every citizen has chosen to follow the Juche Idea which is the world outlook centred on human being, an ideology for the realization of independence of the popular masses and is firmly believing in Juche Idea thinking and acting according to its requirement.

Juche, usually translated as “self-reliance”, and often referred to as Kimilsungism, is a political thesis formed by Kim Il-sung which states that the Korean masses are the masters of the country’s development. It’s written in confusing, fluffy lingo and kind of means very little. In a speech in 1955 Kim Il-sung said about Juche…

To make revolution in Korea we must know Korean history and geography as well as the customs of the Korean people. Only then is it possible to educate our people in a way that suits them and to inspire in them an ardent love for their native place and their motherland.

The socialist Marxist DPRK are agnostic by definition and religion is frowned upon. When I say “frowned upon” I mean punishable. Robert Park smuggled a bible into the country a few years ago and found himself on the wrong side of a DPRK jail. Bible carrying surely can’t be considered particularly offensive if you genuinely are a state where religion is tolerated. Park was tortured extensively and has been left deeply mentally scarred; he’s attempted suicide and can no longer bear to be touched by strangers.

According to Open Doors UK, North Korea has been the most oppressive place for Christians to live for 12 years in a row. They estimate 300,000 Christians in total but all must worship in secret for fear of being sent to the labour camps.

Apparently the religious vacuum is filled by private prayers behind double locked doors and an obsession with fortune tellers.
