Statistics don’t lie, Hindus are being marginalized in Bangladesh. The reasons are very complicated and explaining them is beyond the scope of this article, so I’ll try to address them as briefly as possible.
After the independence, Hindus (who stayed back in Bangladesh) finally thought they would be able to live in their homeland peacefully. However, after the assassination of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, a series of quick government successions including several military coups took place which caused the country to take a turn for the worse. Many people thought there is no future in this country and left. There was a major brain drain at that time, and most never came back.
And add to all these the rapid population increase by Muslims. Most Bengali Muslims in the rural areas had 5-6 children even in the recent past causing the population in this region to increase four times since 1947 further marginalizing the Hindus.
So coming back to your original question, yes, Hindus are, as a percentage of the population, decreasing. Having said that, the biggest changes occurred before the 1990’s, when the country was in a state of turmoil and disarray. If you look at the recent numbers, you’ll see that the rate is decreasing.
This brave Bangladeshi non-Muslim man is not afraid to tell the truth about what is happening to non-Muslim minorities in his country. When they are the minority, they cry for minority rights but when the majority, there are are no such thing as minority rights. 20,000 Muslims burned Hindu village in Bangladesh – media ignored In order not to harm the image of Islam. They used the sharia blasphemy law to justify their actions against the Hindu minority. Sharia law should be banned in the West.
Bangladeshi man says killing Hindus is not a crime when the majority are Muslims “My country Bangladesh is close to 90% Muslim”
Radical Muslim terrorists all over the world carry out terror attacks “in the name of Allah”. They justify their violence by quoting verses from the Quran. Politicians in the West always claim “Islam is a religion of peace”,
Despite the fact that some Muslims and even former Muslims such as Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Sandra Solomon claim that there are verses in the Quran and the Islamic scriptures that call for violence against infidels that often what leads to the violence and terrorism carried out against infidels by Muslims.
Christians are the world’s most persecuted religious group, according to studies Christians and other Non-Muslim minorities throughout the Muslim world are being persecuted for being non-Muslims. The Christian community in Iraq and Syria was completely annihilated by radical Muslims, anyone who could not escape and refused to convert to Islam was executed.
The Western world ignores the cruel persecution of Christians in the Muslim world. Where are all the human rights organizations of the UN? Where are all human rights organizations in the West?
Liberals and leftists in the West use the made up term “Islamophobia” to portray anyone who criticizes Islam as a “racist”.They ignore the fact that Islam is an ideology that has nothing to do with race.There is an attempt in the West to impose a sharia-blasphemy law to criminalize criticism of Islam.It started when Saudi Arabia and Muslim countries tried to pass a UN resolution to force Western states to criminalize criticism of Islam.
The Parliament in Canada passed “Motion M-103” to condemn the so-called “Islamophobia (Fear of Islam)” in a preparation for a blasphemy law in Canada.According to the sharia blasphemy law anyone who criticizes Islam or the Prophet Muhammad should be killed.Under Sharia blasphemy law in Saudi Arabia and Iran Muslims are executed if they are accused of blasphemy.
In Pakistan, the situation is even worse, radical Muslims use the blasphemy law to persecute the Christian minority.Is this the law the liberals in the West want to adopt? Even now, Hindus are facing genocide, terror, persecution, dishonour and atrocities in Bangladesh every day. And there is selective killing of Hindu judges, professionals, teachers, lawyers and civil servants in Bangladesh to smash Hindu resistance.
Human rights organisations like Amnesty International are silent spectators of this blatant ethnic cleansing of millions of Hindus.The alarming trend of Muslims kidnapping young Hindu girls and forcibly marrying them to Muslims is tormenting Hindus in Pakistan and Bangladesh.
What about the hundreds of Hindus killed by Rohingyas in Myanmar ?? We are now waiting for them to kill us here since they are all over India now and brought in to destabilise our country which will make Vatican happy.
By this logic Muslims in a country in which Religion being followed by majority population is different should get no right to live. Countries that live with and protect Muslim minorities are decent, cultured, democratic, peaceful and progressive. So religion the culprit.
TV channels should show all this truth. Majority of Hindus don’t believe that Muslims have any such agenda called ummah or that they will start insisting on sharia law once they reach 25% population etc. Real life stories must be shown on TV.
