Nineteen trafficked Christian children have been rescued in Bangladesh, and there is an intensive search for more who were basically sold into slavery.

BangladeshThe traffickers tricked the parents into believing the children, ages 5 to 12, would be taken to Dhaka and educated in a Christian school. Corey Bailey of International Christian Concern tells OneNewsNow the intent was actually to sell them to madrassas, or Islamic schools.

"Basically what happened is university students in Dhaka found out about the plight of these children, met the bus at the station in Dhaka, rescued the kids and actually nabbed the trafficker who is now in jail," he explains.

Under the deceptive plan, the children are forced to convert to Islam, sign documents to that effect, and change their names to make it hard to trace them.

"If they refuse to do anything that the teachers at the Islamic training center want them to do, they report being beaten with live wires, starved, locked in closets," Bailey says. "So part of it is to convert them, but sources are telling us that they believe that the goal is to brainwash them and then send them off to be part of suicide squads to be used in Jihad."

ICC is working to educate the Christian villagers so they will not be tricked into giving up their children, but they are also learning from other families that have been deceived previously. To date, about 150 children have been rescued and roughly 200 more are missing.
