Fresh on the heels of my post yesterday concerning thousands of minority girls forcibly converted to Islam in Pakistan comes this story out of Bangladesh -- hundreds of Christian children are facing the same horrific slave fate. I am sure the number is immeasurably larger.
And Obama's response to the spike in Islamic torture, supremacism, subjugation and oppression? He removed the Religious Freedom Section from the State Department's Human Rights reports. He subscribes to the tree in the forest fable -- if no one speaks for the enslaved and the dead then ...... then they don't exist and never did.
Almost 300 Christian children abducted and forcibly converted to Islam in Bangladesh
by Nozrul Islam, Asia News (thanks to David)
Taken by intermediaries after they convince village families to pay for an education at pseudo hostels, the children are in fact brought to madrassas (Islamic schools) where imams force them to abjure Christianity. The latest case has a happy ending however when 11 children were able to escape from captivity.
Dhaka (AsiaNews) - In Bangladesh, Christian children from Tripuri tribes have been taken away from their villages and forcibly converted to Islam. Local Catholic sources, who asked their names be withheld, told AsiaNews that almost 300 children have been taken to madrassas (Islamic schools).
The story is the same. So-called intermediaries, who are also ethnic Tripuri, visit poverty-stricken communities where they convince families to send their children to a mission hostel, charging between 6,000 and 15,000 taka (US$ 500 to 1,200) for school and board. After pocketing the money, the intermediaries sell the children to Islamic schools elsewhere in the country.Read the rest here.
