The Muslim Ummah owes a great responsibility to safeguard the Muslims of Bangladesh against the conspiracies and attacks of Christian fundamentalists and Christian NGOs. If actions to arrest the issue are not taken by all concerned and the NGO bombs are allowed to explode, a Lebanon-like situation will fast emerge in the country to the bewilderment of everybody. The Muslim NGOs working in Bangladesh
are very insignificant. The situation demands us to set up more and more Muslim NGOs to combat this great aggression of western imperialism - Saidul Islam.
The Crafty Project: Christianization of Bangladesh
Western non-governmental organizations are operating in all parts of the world. Many are doing great work in alleviating poverty and helping with development efforts. Unfortunately, some have hidden agendas. Presently Bangladesh has the NGO density of 3.5 foreign NGOs per square mile. Most of the foreign NGOs, under the banner of "development partner", are working to remove poverty and to bring education, and progress to the country. Their failure to do so has instead brought about an increase in tensions and social problems in Bangladesh.
Their hidden agenda is now evident. Their activities can best be described as 'the revived form of imperialism' and 'neo-colonialism', a great threat to the entire nation and its majority Muslim population, estimated at 86%.
These organizations bring billions of dollars to help the poor people, but only 5% goes to the target group. The rest of money is spent to materialize their hidden agendas; to convert the indigenous population to Christianity.
In the 190 years of colonial rule in united Bengal, only 111,426 people were converted to Christianity. Out of this converts, about 50 thousand were citizens of Bangladesh. The number of Christians in the territory had risen by 400% from about 50,000 in 1947 to 200,000 in 1971. According to one estimate, in the period between 1971 and 1991, the number of Christian converts in Bangladesh has risen from 200,000 to 400,000.
Christian sources tend to underplay their numbers, but it is reported that their goal is to increase the Christian population to 10-12 million in the next 20 years.
The methods used by these NGOs are corruption, seduction and conversion. The policy of the most Christian NGOs is to employ Muslims last and to favor those who convert. The idea is to create an economically and educationally influential community of converts who would, in due course, like in many parts of Africa, control all the key sectors of power: education, economy, social policy, bureaucracy and military.
