Bangladesh Culture of Impunity

Despite its many human rights violations, Bangladesh still receives European and international aid.

In Bangladesh, poverty and corruption have long been endemic. Yet religious intolerance is an ever-growing problem. Controlled by an Islamic state, religious minorities – such as Hindus, Christians, Buddhists and others – remain under constant threat, with “crimes against them rarely punished”. As Shahriar Kabir explains, “we have recorded more than 3000 incidents of minority persecutions ranging from killings, rape, arson, plundering and looting”. But how and why has Bangladesh been allowed to thrive as an “extremist haven”? After all, “a challenge of human rights violations in any place on earth is a challenge for the international community”. ~ Miles Roston

2Corinthians 5 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. 20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ's behalf, be reconciled to God.
