Every DPRK citizen enjoys full religious freedom. Despite the hostile propaganda against the DPRK, The Korean Buddhists Federation, the Korean Federation of Christians and other religious groups are proud part of public institutions.

The Socialist Constitution of the DPRK states clearly religious rights of citizens in Chapter V: Basic Rights And Duties of a Citizen (Article 68):

“Citizens have freedom of religious belief. This right is granted through the approval of the construction of religious buildings and the holding of religious ceremonies. Religion must not be used as a pretext for drawing in foreign forces or for harming the State or social order.”

The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is a secular state, which means that there is no official religion and none of them has power in politics.
