'False' report could enrage extremists, Christians claim
Catholic and Protestant Church leaders have denounced a U.S. Christian news report that claimed 91,000 Muslims across Bangladesh have converted to Christianity.
The July 20 report from The Christian Post claims the surge happened over the last six years. “Even though persecution against Christians in Bangladesh is on the rise, so is the number of Muslims converting to Christianity,” the report reads.
The report references a U.S.-based Christian human rights organization, Christian Freedom International as its primary source of information. It goes on to estimate that there are 1.6 million Christians in Bangladesh, accounting for 1 percent of country’s 160 million people,
