If you want to punish a non-Muslim, especially a poor Christian in Pakistan, point your index finger at him and utter the word “blasphemy.” You will soon find thousands of Islamic hardliners beside you chanting, “Death to blasphemers!” Similarly, if you want to root out a Hindu family from its ancestral home in Bangladesh, just accuse one of its members of insulting the Islamic Prophet Muhammad. You will soon find thousands of Muslims rushing to burn the Hindu family’s whole neighborhood down, without hesitation or evidence.

Such behavior towards minorities — Christians in Pakistan and Hindus in Bangladesh — has become commonplace among fundamentalist Muslims in both countries, whose governments have surrendered to Islamists...

According to the U.S. State Department’s International Religious Freedom report for 2016:

“There were a significant number of attacks against religious minorities [in Bangladesh], particularly Hindus. In October hundreds of villagers in the eastern part of the country vandalized more than 50 Hindu family homes and 15 Hindu temples, following a Facebook post believed by some to be offensive to Islam. High levels of election-related violence in June resulted in the death of 126 individuals and injuries to 9,000 others. In one attack in a suburb of Dhaka, the media reported hundreds of attackers used sticks and bamboo poles to beat a group of Catholics and vandalize their homes and shops, injuring an estimated 60 people.”

The report further cited religious minorities in Bangladesh who claim that the government continues to discriminate against them in property disputes, and does not adequately protect them from attacks...

According to an eminent Bangladeshi economist and researcher, Dr. Abul Barkat of Dhaka University,

within 30 years, there will be no Hindus left in the country, based on “the rate of exodus over the past 49 years.”

Barkat, author of “Political Economy of Unpeopling of Indigenous People: The Case of Bangladesh,” said that between 1964 and 2013, 11.3 million Hindus had left Bangladesh due to religious persecution and discrimination...

A Self-Study Course on Political Islam, Level 1, Political Islam:

At this time [after Mohammed died], the Middle East was not remotely what we think of now. It was basically a Greek culture. The Greeks were sailors and businessmen, and the Greek culture spread all around the rim of the Mediterranean, including Syria and Northern Egypt. North Africa was a Greek culture. And, of course, all of Anatolia (Turkey) was Greek. It was a highly sophisticated culture but it had overwhelming problems: age, degeneracy and decay.
… Syria, Persia, Iraq, Egypt and North Africa all fell in thirty years time. All of the Greek culture except that which was in Anatolia was destroyed. An entire new world order came about…
In Egypt, for instance, the Coptic culture was especially despised. Now the Copts, the descendants of the Pharaohs, were Christian. Islam invaded a Christian and Coptic Egypt. Today Egypt is Arabic and 90 percent Muslim. Centuries of being a dhimmi annihilated Coptic culture. That was the life of the dhimmi.
North Africa became Islamic. Six hundred years of Christianity disappeared. The culture of the Greeks, the Romans, the Europeans, was all annihilated. Then the pressure started up against Greek Anatolia.
…The Christians had no idea what hit them… From the beginning, the Christian leaders showed an incomprehension about the jihadist invasion… They called the invaders all manner of cruel names, except Muslim jihadists. Little has changed in Christian leadership in 1400 years.
