A Christian family in the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka was attacked last week by Muslims who demanded money in exchange for the house, AsiaNews reported. Some 100 Muslims attacked the Christian family, forcing them to leave their three-room home. Tapon Cruze told AsiaNews they wanted to kill them if they did not leave their home which is close to Dhaka’s Holy Rosary Catholic Church. The victims reported that on Oct. 15 they were assaulted without any legitimate reason. They said the criminals were accompanied by the police, "who witnessed the grabbing and did nothing to stop it.” “We lost our possessions, money, and we're out of the house" the victims told AsiaNews.
A victim reported that a Muslim land grabber Azijulla, wanted the property by force or money. Nirmal Rozario, general secretary of the Bangladesh Christian Association, who visited the occupied house said, “They are committing a grave injustice against the Christian community. In Bangladesh, Christians are a weak minority and this is why Muslims are attacking us," he said.
Bangladesh’s some 152 million population is 89.9% Muslim. Christians who are a minute 0.2% and Hindus some 9.1% are subject to numerous attacks and to land grabbing. (Source: UCAN)
