Bangladesh-300x300DHAKA, Bangladesh – Two Bangladesh pastors have been charged with “hurting religious sentiments” and could face two years behind bars after they were arrested during a house church service. Arif Mondol leads the Faith Bible Church of God in Lalmonirhat, and meets with 30-40 area Christians on a regular basis. Earlier this month, as he and a visiting pastor were conducting a baptism, a mob of angry Muslims between 100-200 in number stormed the building and began attacking Mondol and his friend. According to Open Doors, the Muslims were upset that some of those being baptized were former Muslims. “More than 100 Muslims headed by local Jamaat-e-Islami party members and Muslim clerics gathered at the house and started barking questions at the pastors: why did they propagate Christianity in the locality and convert some of them,” a source also told Morning Star News. “The pastors replied that it did not take any permission from any authority to propagate any religion and convert people to any religion.” More
