Buddhist Minorities attacked in Bangladesh

The FABC has written a letter (see below) to the Foreign Minister of Bangaldesh Dr Dipu Moni on 14th Oct 2012 with our concerns over the attacks on Buddhist minorities that occured in late Sep 2012.

This news article taken from the Bangledeshi New Age newspaper which quotes the Bangladesh Foreign Minister:

Foreign minister Dipu Moni on Thursday said it was clear from preliminary evidence that the attacks on the Buddhist places of worship and homesteads were carried in a planned manner in Ramu on September 29.  Briefing members of the diplomatic corps and representatives of the UN and other international organisations at the foreign ministry on the Ramu violence, she said certain vested groups and individuals were instrumental in the riots.

The FABC is happy to assist in publicising this inter-faith event:

The first High Country Interfaith Live-in Weekend offers an opportunity for guests from diverse cultural and faith communities to live together in harmony, to become familiar with the life style, family values, dietary requirements and dress codes of each other. Sharing meals, observing prayer times and practiced values will enable the participants to draw common denominators and to accept and respect the differences, what is the basis of harmonious co-existence. . It is also a valuable experience to be able to live under the same roof and share with the speakers of the Symposium, who are respected leaders of represented communities. After event, these insights will be shared with the members of represented communities, enhancing the understanding of each other’s reasons of living the way one lives and the respect of those reasons.
