The Child of Jehovah's Witnesses

Against the backdrop of the trial against Jehovah's Witnesses, some children, brought up in accordance with biblical morality, began to experience unprecedented pressure from teachers and police officers.

March 28, 2017 in Ufa (Bashkortostan), the district police A. Rozhkin came to the house of a large family and, finding the eldest son, asked for a written explanation regarding their religion. When the mother and daughters came, the policeman demanded an explanation why the woman "involves minors in extremist activities" (which is not true). The woman refused to give explanations, and the eldest daughter began to write down the words of the policeman on the cell phone. Later the police continued to exert pressure on the family.

On April 17, 2017, in one of the schools in the Rodionovo-Nesvetai district of the Rostov region, the class teacher summoned a 14-year-old girl from the lesson to the principal's office, having previously withdrawn her phone. In the office of the district police A. Yunyaev, as well as a man in civilian clothes, began to tell the girl that her mother forces her to go to a "terrorist organization" in which "they are robbed" and "are taught to kill people." Officials brought the child to tears, intimidating the child, insulting her feelings and unreliablely claiming that Jehovah's Witnesses would "wrap her around and send her to blow up the school." They urged the girl to "show my mother to me and not go to meetings." "If you want, read the Bible at home and do not go anywhere," they said. "Just read our Bible, from the church."

On April 24, 2017, in a school in the Pizhansky district of the Kirov region, two sixth-grade pupils, native sisters from the family of Jehovah's Witnesses, refused to sing a song at the music lesson, the text of which extols military actions and murder (which contradicts the family's religious beliefs). Although the teacher knows the views of this family, she on high tones drove the children from the class to look for another song than brought them to tears. Before the whole class, the teacher said to the girls: "You are now banned and already fed up with your religion." Later, in a conversation with the mother of the girls, the teacher said: "You are now extremists and there will be no indulgence." Nevertheless, the family managed to agree on the performance of a song about nature that does not contradict their views. The teacher lowered the rating "for a song off topic."

According to the legislation in force in Russia, parents have the pre-emptive right to educate and educate their children before all other persons. It is to parents that the Family Code imposes the duty of caring for "the spiritual and moral development of their children."
