Measures needed to consolidate management of religious activities on cyberspace
Religious activities on social networks have become increasingly diverse amid the Fourth Industrial Revolution. However, apart from proper practices, some individuals and organisations have taken advantage of the internet to carry out illegal activities, which requires state agencies to take countermeasures.
About 95 percent of Vietnam’s population engage in religious or belief-related practices. Sixteen religions with 43 relevant organisations have been recognised and licensed by the State. They gather over 27 million followers (about 28 percent of the population) and have nearly 30,000 places of worship.
