Dhaka, Mar 6: Bangladesh's official religion Islam could be dropped as a number of attacks in the country have increased against people of other faiths.

Christians, Hindus and Muslim minority Shiites have recently faced attacks that are believed to have been carried out by Islamic extremists.

The country's Supreme Court is currently hearing arguments in favour of removing Islam as the official religion of Bangladesh. Islam has been the country's official religion since 1988.

In Bangladesh, 90% of the population is Muslim, 8% are Hindu and 2% is made up of other minority religions. In the past month, a Hindu priest was hacked to death at an attack at a temple in Bangladesh's Panchgarh district in which two Hindu followers were also injured, while in the past year several prominent religious minority bloggers have been murdered.
