Amid increasing violence against Christians in Bangladesh, a bishop called on Muslims to "respect others' religious teachings in order to build a world free from conflict."

Bishop Gervas Rozario made his remarks during an April 4 gathering of 50 Muslim and Christian leaders at the Islamic Foundation Bangladesh, an organization overseen by the government’s Ministry of Religious Affairs, reported AsiaNews.it.

"Harmony and coexistence between religions are the prerequisites of social justice, peace and tranquility," he said. "Let us build a society where people of all faiths and cultures can live in complete security and great human dignity."

Bangladesh, a South Asian nation of 169 million, is nearly 90 percent Muslim, nearly 10 percent Hindu, and 0.2 percent Catholic.
