A North Korean defector has revealed how fewer citizens now see Kim Jong-un as a God with more people turning to Christianity.

Anyone caught practising religion of any form in the hermit state can face jail, torture or even execution, according to a US State Department report on global religious freedoms.

But despite this, many are abandoning the notion that their supreme leader is a deity, according to an unnamed defector.

The defector, part of a group called the Worldwide Coalition to Stop Genocide in North Korea, told the Daily Telegraph: ‘In the past, the people were told to worship the Kim family as their god, but many North Koreans no longer respect Kim Jong-un. That means they are looking for something else to sustain their faith.

‘In some places, that has led to the emergence of shamens, but the Christian church is also growing and deepening its roots there.

‘Even though people know they could be sent to prison – or worse – they are still choosing to worship, and that means that more cracks are appearing in the regime and the system,’ said the defector, who is said to be active in backing ‘underground churches’ operating in the secretive nation.

It comes after the US released a damning report into global religious freedoms, slamming allies and foes alike for their shortcomings at a time when its own record has come under fire.
