This report from the Pew Research Center focuses its attention on religious restrictions in the world's 25 most populous countries, where more than 5 billion people currently reside. Taking figures drawn from numerous reports between 2007 and 2013, the article traces which countries have increased in religious freedom, which countries have further restricted religious freedom, and why. Besides the well composed infographic, the article also showcases links to about a dozen resources around the web, many of them in-depth features on the U.S. Department of State website. Readers will read that England saw the greatest gains in religious freedom in 2013, mostly due to a supreme court ruling legitimizing Scientology, and that China's religious restrictions in Tibet are still brutal.
