Bangladesh is ranked #31 on the Open Doors 2021 World Watch List of Christian persecution.
Stand Asia also has a very close relationship with Christian pastors in Bangladesh. We also empower local Christians, enabling them to become an effective voice within their own community and country. We prioritize training and support to enable the growth of an indigenous leadership that is responsive and equipped to document accurately and advocate on behalf of those in need.
Persecution: There is a high level of persecution of Christians in Bangladesh. Christians – mainly converts from Islam – face difficulties from various sources, even from their own families. Believers typically meet in secret in house churches or small groups to minimize the possibilities of attack.
