ICC Note:

A Christian family in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, has had their property stolen by Muslim “land grabbers”. According to the Christian family, 100 Muslims attacked the Christian family in their home demanding they hand over the property to them along with all of their possessions. The Christian family went on to say that the attackers were accompanied by local police who did nothing as the Muslims took their property.

10/20/2015 Bangladesh (Asia News) – About 100 Muslims attacked a Christian family living in Dhaka and forced them to leave their three room home. Tapon Cruze tells AsiabNews: “They wanted to shoot me. They told us that they would kill us if we had opposed the expropriation of our house,” not far from the Catholic Church of the Holy Rosary in the capital.

The incident happened on October 15, and the victims report that they were assaulted without any legitimate reason. The criminals were accompanied by the police, “who witnessed the expropriation and did nothing to stop it. We lost our possessions, money, and we’re out of the house.”

The man reported that a Muslim land grabber, Azijulla, wanted them out of the house by force. “He asked for money in exchange for our property. They are cheating us. We have appealed to the Christian community and the media. We met the pastor of the local church.”

Nirmal Rozario, general secretary of the Bangladesh Christian Association, said: “I visited the place occupied by Muslims. 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.”
