BDNEWS24 reports on the tragic death of Bangladeshi blogger, Ahmed Rajib. The police report that he was brutally hacked to death and had his throat slit.
Protesters believe Rajib became the target of fundamentalists for his interpretations of Islam from the standpoint of a self-proclaimed atheist.
His blogging attracted threats to his life. One such post is still there in ‘Sonar Bangla’, a blog known to have been operated by pro-Jamaat-e-Islami activists.
Protesters are convinced that the Jamaat and its student front Islami Chhatra Shibir assassinated Rajib.
The street where Rajib came under the attack did not have its lights on, making it difficult to identify the killers immediately, said local MP Ilias Molla.
He alleged the area was a stronghold of the Jamaat-Shibir activists.
Yes indeed, the religion of peace strikes yet again.
Any belief system that enables you to think that murdering those that hold a different view is just fine can be summed up with just one single word … evil.
