Saint Paul, MN asked in Immigration Law for Minnesota

Q: Strong asylum case?

Hi. I have a asylum case based on religious ground. My religion is banned in my country. Police can arrest me, fine, confiscate belongings and put me in jail for practicing my religion which includes (possessing literature, participating in worship meetings and proselytizing or teaching someone about my religion). Does this consider a real persecution or it’s a harassment? Is my asylum claim strong enough?

Thanks in advance
