Extractions: Articles CHRISTIANITY IN BANGLADESH By Jerome D'Costa Author of the book Bangladeshey Catholic Mondoli (The Catholic Church in Bangladesh) Introduction: The Advent of the Portuguese and Christianity in Bengal: Renowned Portuguese navigator Vasco da Gama rounded the Cape of Good Hope of South Africa in 1498 and landed at Calicut (present Kozikode of India) by discovering the sea-route to India. From 1500 onwards, the Portuguese established their power first in Cranganore, then to Cochin and Goa. With these traders and commercial opportunists, also came Franciscan, Dominican, Augustinian, and Jesuit missionaries to bring Indian heathens to Christ. From 1517 onwards, Portuguese traders from Goa were traversing the sea-route to Bengal but were not successful in establishing trading posts in this part of India. Only in 1537, were they allowed to settle and open customs houses at Satgaon (near present-day Hooghly) of West Bengal (India) and Chittagong of present-day Bangladesh. In 1577, Mughal emperor Akbar permitted the Portuguese to build permanent settlements and churches in Bengal. The first Christians in Bengal were the Portuguese themselves. After their intermarriage with local women, their descendants became the first indigenous Christians. Then came the local converts to Christianity from both Hinduism and Islam.

The blast hit as 2,000 revelers welcomed Pahela Baishakh, the Bengali New Year, early Saturday at a park in downtown Dhaka. No one has claimed responsibility but Bangladesh has been struck by a series of general strikes and clashes as a standoff mounts over when the next election will be held. The opposition, which has been pressing for Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's resignation to pave the way for early polls, has planned another three-day general strike beginning April 23. Police said on Sunday they suspect the bombing was the work of four young men who lived together in a rented house in Demra, an industrial town near the capital Dhaka. A college student, identified only as Swadhin, was detained late Saturday for questioning. Another suspect is believed to have died in the blast. Two others are among 10 people being treated in two state-run hospitals.
