CWN Editor's Note: 100 Christians held a protest in the village of Padrishibpur in southern Bangladesh following the murdered of Malkam D’Costa, whose son testified against a Muslim man accused of rape. The South Asian nation of 164 million (map)—the world’s 8th most populous—is 89% Muslim and 9% Hindu.

“We Christians are citizens of this country, but they persecute us because we are a minority,” said one demonstrator. “We want to live peacefully and see the perpetrators of this murder punished.”
