Bangladeshi Islamists threaten violence if Supreme Court drops Islam as the country's main religion

Thousands of Muslims rallied in Bangladesh's capital on Friday to denounce a court petition seeking to remove Islam as the country's official state religion.
About 3,000 Muslims protested outside the national mosque in Dhaka against the petition, filed by a group of prominent citizens, which is to be taken up by the High Court on Sunday.
The Hifazat-e-Islam Bangladesh group called for a mass strike on Friday, warning that "Millions of Muslims will come out of mosques against the Supreme Court” and punish the judges. The Islamic fundamentalist group Hifazat-e-Islam Bangladesh has threatened retaliation and a general strike if the Supreme Court seriously considers dropping Islam as the state religion.
“Bangladesh is a country where 92 per cent of the people are Muslim. If anybody removes our religion from the constitution, we shall oppose them. If the government and the Supreme Court do it, they will offend our religious sentiment,” said the Hifazat-e-Islam Bangladesh Secretary Azizul Haque Islamabadi. Huge mass protest and people will follow with dire consequences.
"We are here to give a message to authorities that we will not tolerate any move to cancel Islam as state religion," said Abdur Rahim, a participant. "We will resist such moves at any cost."

The judges are currently holding public hearings to decide whether to repeal the Eighth Amendment of the Constitution, which makes Islam the state religion.
“We abide by the court, but we hope it will not take any decision which will force religious people to take to the streets and cause chaos in the country,” Islamabadi noted.
Military dictator H.M. Ershad declared Islam the state religion in 1988 to win support during a campaign by major political parties to oust him from power. He resigned amid large protests in 1990.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina brought back secularism as a pillar of the constitution in 2011, but retained Islam as the state religion.

Must they always resort to violence, why are these people so sick? The elders in these groups and Islam never take part in the fighting/suicide bombings etc, they just push the youth to do it. They value their lives but feed on chaos that comes with Islam. Islam is peaceful not violent!

A country with 92% Muslims? They should leave them na. Let's stop looking for trouble please.

When they say Islam is peace they mean peace in their own term "violence".. all they know how to do is shed blood nd destroy yet they want ppl to see wat they do as d right tin.Thank u lord for creating me in a family of christians where they teach nd practice Peace.

Well
You can see the country belongs to Muslims and some stupid people are wondering why they don't want Islam to be the main religion there.Its like saying Muslims going to Jerusalem and say they don't want Christianity to be the main religion there so since the place is already mainly Muslims they should let Islam be the main religion there
