Karim at Amader Kotha writes about how Christmas is celebrated in Bangladesh, a Muslim majority country:

The Christian community in Bangladesh may be a minority when compared to the number of people following other religious pathways in the country, nevertheless Christmas in Bangladesh, which is a public holiday, is celebrated with great vigour. Christmas in Bangladesh is called ‘Bara Din (Big Day)’ and is celebrated in various ways in various regions of the country.

Our work building bridges across cultures, languages and perspectives is more urgent than ever before.
