    Bangladesh machete murder claimed by IS   says BBC News

    Quote
      The Islamic State group (IS) said it was behind the killing of a homeopath in western Bangladesh on Friday. Mir Sanwar Rahman was hacked to death by three attackers with machetes riding a motorbike in Kushia district.

    His friend, university tutor Mohammad Saifuzzaman, was seriously injured in the same attack.
    There has been a series of murders of religious minorities, secular activists and academics in Bangladesh in recent months.

    Both of the men attacked on Friday were said to be followers of the mystic tradition of Baul music, seen as heretical by some Muslims. However, police said they were also investigating a possible personal motive for the killings.

    IS made its claim on its Amaq news agency, saying Mr Rahman was killed for "promoting Christianity".
    Mr Rahman was known for giving out free homeopathic medicine. He and Mr Saifuzzaman were ambushed as they rode on a motorbike in their village.
     
    Police official Proloy Kishim told the BBC Bengali service the two men had both been stabbed on the head and neck.More than 20 people have been killed in attacks by suspected Islamists in the past three years..... 

      well that is what link says... red it all at that link.,   should I believe that??

    Well, the eternal problem: Should you believe the press, and does the press believe its sources?


    Pretty hardcore to kill people for handing out free water!

    Professor Muhammad Zafar Iqbal  Renowned BD writer stabbed at seminar



    Quote
    DHAKA: One of Bangladesh’s top writers was stabbed in the back of the head during a seminar in the northern city of Sylhet on Saturday, police said, the latest in a series of attacks on authors and bloggers. Iqbal, who teaches at a state-run university in Sylhet, is a long-standing a champion of free speech and secularism in Bang­ladesh. He is also a top selling author and celebrity spea­ker who regularly appears at university campuses nationwide

    Police said Zafar Iqbal, a celebrated secular activist and bestselling science fiction writer, was rushed to hospital in Sylhet after the attack. “He was hit on the back of his head and he was bleeding,” a police constable posted at the hospital said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

    Abdul Wahab, a spokesman for the Sylhet city police, confirmed the incident, saying police suspect he was attacked with a knife. “He was in a seminar when he was stabbed on the back of his head. His gunman caught an attacker,” he said, referring to Iqbal’s police guard.

    Bangladesh’s government has provided security for the country’s top secular writers and activists since suspected violent extremists named them in a several lists of targets. Police do not know how many people were involved in the attack nor whether they belonged to any extremist groups, he said. “He has been taken to the operating theatre,” he said, adding he would be flown to a military hospital in Dhaka for better treatment.

    “It is an ominous sign. He is a guardian of progressive movement in Bangladesh. His attack is an attack against progressive Bangladesh,” said Imran Sarker, head of one of the top secular groups. “He was in the hit-list by militant and other groups in the past. The government can’t avoid its responsibility,” he said.

     it says Bangladesh Avijit Roy murder: Five sentenced to die for machete attack on blogger  with another picture o my friend



    A court in Bangladesh has sentenced five men to death and one to life in jail for hacking a secular blogger to death six years ago in Dhaka.

    Quote
    Avijit Roy, based in the US and of Bangladeshi origin, was attacked with machetes as he left a book fair in the capital in February 2015.

    It was one of a spate of attacks on secular figures, which were blamed on Islamist militants.

    Roy, an atheist, had angered hardliners with his writings on religion.

    His wife Rafida Ahmed was with him when the attack took place as they left the Dhaka University campus. She was critically wounded, but survived.

    The assault was carried out by a banned group, Ansar al-Islam, which is believed to be linked with al-Qaeda, the court heard.
    Quote
    Two of the group were tried in absentia, including former army major Syed Ziaul Haque, who is accused of leading the attackers. He was sentenced to be hanged for murdering Roy, as were four others: Abu Siddique Sohel, Mozammel Hossain, Arafat Rahman and Akram Hossain, who along with Syed Ziaul Haque is still on the run.

    Shafiur Rahman Farabi was given life in jail, after being arrested in March 2015
     
    In June 2016 police said they had shot dead the main suspect - a man they named as Sharif - in the killing of Roy in a gun battle near the capital..

     

    "Charges against them were proved beyond any doubt. The court gave them the highest punishment," public prosecutor Golam Sarwar Khan said after the verdict outside the Special Anti-Terrorism Tribunal in Dhaka.

    Lawyers for the defence plan to appeal.

    Quote
    Roy's wife Rafida, who lives in the US, criticised the investigation into her husband's murder.

    "In six years, not one person investigating the case in Bangladesh reached out to me - though I am a direct witness and victim of the attack," she wrote in a Facebook post. "Simply prosecuting a few foot-soldiers - and ignoring the rise and roots of extremism - does not mean justice for Avi's death." Police believe the Ansar al-Islam group were behind the murders of more than a dozen secular activists and bloggers. A string of deadly such attacks took place in Bangladesh between 2013 and 2016, and were blamed on extremists inspired by al-Qaeda and the Islamic State group.
