Islam as state religion of Bangladesh
30 March 2016 Current Affairs: Bangladeshs top court has rejected a 28-year-old petition to remove Islam as official religion of the country. While the South Asian nations Islamists rejoice, analysts say the move is a setback for secular forces. Islam was introduced as state religion in the Bangladeshi constitution in 1988, almost two decades after the South Asian nation got independence from Pakistan following a liberation war. The inclusion of Islam was against the core principles of the countrys independence fighters. The move prompted a group of 15 prominent citizens to file a petition in the courts.
