(August 5, 2019 | Chittagong, Bangladesh) As the political impasse between Bangladesh and Myanmar over the Rohingya crisis deepens and tensions between local communities and Rohingya refugees are escalating, over 70 Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu and Christian leaders, women of faith and youth leaders in Bangladesh convened a National Consultation for the RfP 10th World Assembly in Chittagong, Bangladesh on 3 August 2019.
In Dhaka on November 27th-28th 2018, Religions for Peace Bangladesh sponsored an international seminar on World Peace through Interfaith and Intrafaith Dialogue in association with Religions for Peace Asia. It was attended by about 140 religious and interfaith leaders together with religious scholars and researchers from Bangladesh and international attendees from Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Myanmar and Sri Lanka.
Religions for Peace Asia – and in particular Religions for Peace Bangladesh, have responsed to the refugee crisis in Bangladesh with over 8000,000 Rohingya Muslims fleeing across the border to escape ethnic cleansing. Through the work of RfP Bangladesh Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, and Muslims have all united under the shared principles of dignity and compassion, and have invested in inter-religious efforts that provide life-saving aid to the survivors of the Rohingya refugee crisis.
