Persecution in the world today

Does Persecution Still Occur in the world today ?

As my research has expanded I have gathered the following information........Persecution is happening in Africa, Asia, Middle East, North and South America, Austrailia and Ocenia. There are 34 countires in Asia and 10060 acts of persecution happening.
People still get persecuted for there religious beliefs even in the modern world that seems so fair. An innocent pastor who faced death for his beliefs now walks free.The reason for his arrest and near death sentence was because he was accused for abandoning Islam.This is obviously unfair and inhumane but if it was not for open doors he would probably been killed for his beliefs.
