Dhaka (AsiaNews) – After graduating from a top Bangladeshi university Rashidul Amin Khandaker went to Australia to expand his father Ruhul’s business.
Here he discovered Christianity and was attracted by the faith’s beauty.
On 26 July 2008 he was baptised by Fr Dominic Ceresoli, parish priest at St Therese in the Archdiocese of Sydney.
As a result of this his family has met with the disapproval of the community and has been ostracised. Now they have received death threats.
The family home was ransacked by local Muslims.
“The lives of Christian converts from Islam are in great danger in Bangladesh. We have seen converts murdered as the government failed to protect them.”
