Bangladesh is one of the most populous Muslim majority nations in the world. However, it has a secret that has become so huge the Muslims cannot hide it any more, and that is tens of thousands of Muslims are abandoning Islam and turning to Christ as their savior. The spread has been so large and so fast that some Christian evangelists are saying it is possible that at least 10% of Bangladesh is now Christian and that number is growing:
Christian Freedom International (CFI) says official figures claim that 89.1 percent of the country’s population are Muslim, 10 percent Hindi, and less than 1 percent Christian.
However, the numbers are deceiving. CFI says official reports on religious composition only count “traditional Christians,” or Bangladeshis who are born into the Christian faith and attend government approved churches. The surveys and reports do not include former Muslims who converted to Christianity.
The consensus among believers in Bangladesh is that Christians now make up at least 10 percent of the country’s population and is growing more every day. If the 10 percent figure is correct, then this Muslim-dominated nation is now the home of at least 15.6 million Christians, CFI says.
In fact, one local pastor says Christianity is growing so fast that it has become “a real problem” for the country’s Muslim leaders.
“In the last 12 months, more than 20,000 Muslims have converted to Christianity, and this is becoming a real problem for the Muslims,” says Pastor Khaleque, a former Muslim who is now a Christian street pastor.
The rise of Christianity has also resulted in the increased persecution of believers and crackdown on underground Christian churches as Muslim leaders try to stamp out the threat to their religion.
