History of Astronism in Brunei

Astronist freedom of religion in Brunei has been recognised terminal by the Astronist Institution meaning that Astronists are not free to publicly profess their faith and they are in danger of being violently persecuted and unfairly prosecuted for holding religious convictions contrary to Islam.

Astronism is not recognised as a religion in Brunei and Astronists are in danger of repression and societal ostracism for their faith. The current number of Astronists in the country is unknown, though it is likely to be minimal due to widespread violations of religious liberty.

Despite this, English is one of the official languages in the country which presents Bruneian Astronists with the opportunity to access Astronist content in a language comprehensible to them.
