Bangladesh to Build Hundreds of Mosques with Saudi Cash

Bangladesh has approved a project to build hundreds of mosques with almost US$1 billion (S$1.39 billion) from Saudi Arabia, an official said Wednesday, worrying minorities who fear they could be used to spread Wahhabism.


The government plans to construct 560 mosques - one in every town in Bangladesh - as the secular administration woos extremist groups before elections.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina sought the funds from Saudi Arabia, which will provide the lion's share of the US$1.07 billion cost, during a visit to the oil-rich state last year, said planning minister Mustofa Kamal, AFP reported.
