[ePrayer – Pray for the current situation in Bangladesh]
CEDAR’s programme staff is currently at a project monitoring trip in Bangladesh. There are changes in schedule and change of site visits but we thankful that he is safe and still able to meet partners and projects. Opposition party Jamaat-e-Islami is holding demonstrations demanding the immediate release of its leaders facing war crimes charges. Schools and businesses were close and motorways and railways across the country were barricaded. This week Bangladesh’s Prime Minister has rejected demands by Islamists for an anti-blasphemy law to punish those who defame Islam and Prophet Mohammed.

- Pray for safety, protection and good learning and networking time with local partners by CEDAR project staff in Bangladesh;
- Pray that peace can be restored and there can be reconciliation between the government and opposing parties. Pray that violence and instability in the country will subside.
