MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

The third-largest Muslim majority country in the world, Bangladesh, is densely populated. Corruption and widespread human rights abuses remain challenges. The nation’s politics continues its slow slide from the pro-independence protest movement of the late 1960s, towards an increasingly one-party-dominated political horizon.  Despite persecution against Christian Believers, the Church has grown in faith, boldness, and numbers.
