Rape of Catholic woman prompts protests in Bangladesh
Catholic World News - April 17, 2014
The gang-rape of a Catholic woman by Muslim youths in Bangladesh has provoked angry protests, and complaints that law-enforcement officials are not providing security for the Christian minority.
The rape victim and her family have continued to receive threats from relatives of the young men arrested for the crime, the AsiaNews service reports. They testify that fear has stopped many rape victims from reporting attacks, allowing their assailants to escape punishment.
An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

Not only in Bangladesh. The Gatestone Institute reports on the epidemic of Muslim paedophile gangs that have been sexually abusing female children in Britain for more than two decades. "Rather than taking steps to protect British children, however, police, social workers, teachers, neighbors, politicians and the media deliberately downplayed the severity of the crimes perpetrated.... to avoid being accused of Islamophobia or racism. http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/4226/uk-child-sex-slavery
