ICC Note:
With the persecution of Christians increasing in Bangladesh the World Council of Churches has reached out to believers in the country to express solidarity.
5/17/2013 Bangladesh (ChristianToday)- Messages of solidarity and concern have been sent to Bangladesh following attacks on religious minorities and the collapse of a garment factory which claimed over a thousand lives.
The World Council of Churches (WCC) general secretary Rev Dr Olav Fykse Tveit spoke in a letter of his “deep sadness over the deaths and injuries of so many people who continue to suffer because of politics, religious persecution and lack of basic human rights and security in the workplace”.
The letter was sent to WCC member churches and the National Council of Churches in Bangladesh.

Dr Tveit recently visited the country as a gesture of solidarity. He said it had been disheartening to hear about the development of communal hatred in a country once known for its tolerance.
