CHRISTIAN students in China are banned from speaking about their faith as a nationwide crackdown against religion intensifies.
The Sichuan Provincial Ethnic and Religious Affairs committee - the body responsibly for religious affairs in Sichuan - has trained more than 100 officials to supervise churches in the providence.
Students across China have also been forced to renounce their faith, or else face disciplinary action.
In Shandong providence, local authorities demanded one student renounce her faith or else she would not receive her diploma.
A medical student in another providence said she was pressured to give up Christianity, and when she refused, authorities said she would be called in to have an "ideological discussion" in the future.
