Bangladesh: prelate calls for peace following Islamist violence

Catholic World News - May 07, 2013

An estimated 200,000 supporters of a Bangladeshi Islamist group marched on Dhaka, the nation’s capital, on May 5, demanding the increasing Islamization of society, including the death penalty for blasphemy and the outlawing of women working with men.

At least 29 people died and 100 businesses were burned down after the march became violent. Archbishop Patrick D'Rozario, the nation’s leading prelate, called for “an effort of good will and peace, from all parts of society.”
