History of Astronism in the Comoros

The status of the religious freedom for Astronists in the Comoros has been designated as terminal by the Astronist Institution. Severe repression of religious liberties has been reported from the Comoros towards numerous non-Islamic religious groups.

Astronists have little to no rights in the country to profess their faith in any way and as a result, the number of Astronists in the country is considered to be very few.

Comorans mainly speak Arabic which represents a further issues for Comorans to access Astronist content as only a limited amount of accurately translated materials on Astronism exists in Arabic as of December 2020.
