systems_wrong Bangladeshis paid tribute Sunday to an American blogger and critic of religious extremism who was hacked to death in Dhaka, in the latest of a series of attacks on writers in the Muslim-majority nation. Avijit Roy, a U.S. citizen of Bangladeshi origin, was killed by machete-wielding assailants on Thursday while returning from a book fair. His wife and fellow blogger, Rafida Ahmed, suffered head injuries and lost a finger. She remains in hospital in a serious condition. The attack came amid a crackdown on hardline Islamist groups, which have increased activities in recent years in the South Asian nation of 160 million people. Sunday gathering Mourners gathered with flowers on Sunday to pay their respects to Avijit, who was in his native city on a visit from the United States. Students, professors and writers were among those laying flowers on Avijit's coffin, placed in the grounds of Dhaka University. "Freethinking in Bangladesh is becoming a great danger, all the freethinkers are at great risk," writer Shahriar Kabir said. "We want to know why the government failed to ensure the safety of him, despite knowing that he had been facing threats from the Islamist radicals." No arrests have been made. A demonstration was also held at the spot where Avijit was killed. Protesters chanted slogans demanding the "immediate arrest and quick trial of the perpetrator." Maintained a blog Avijit's family said Islamist radicals had been threatening him because he maintained a blog, "Mukto-mona," or "Freemind," that highlighted humanist and rationalist ideas and condemned religious extremism. "An Islamist militant group is behind the murder. The fundamentalists were threatening to kill him," Avijit's father Ajoy Roy said at the gathering. U.S. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki called it "a shocking act of violence" that was "horrific in its brutality and cowardice". Continued

  •   systems_wrong In 2013, religious extremists targeted several secular bloggers who had demanded capital punishment for Islamist leaders convicted of war crimes during Bangladesh's war for independence. Blogger Ahmed Rajib Haider was killed that year in a similar attack near his home in Dhaka after he led one such protest demanding capital punishment. In 2004, Humayun Azad, a secular writer and professor at Dhaka University, was also attacked by militants while returning home from a Dhaka book fair. He later died in Germany while undergoing treatment. Media group Reporters Without Borders rated Bangladesh 146th among 180 countries in a ranking of press freedom last year. 13h

al_awakening A tragic event happened in my life that allowed my wife and I to finally realize what is truly important and what is not. #Alhamdulillah we both got right with #Allah (swt) and decided that there is nothing more important than being the absolute best #Muslims that we can be. With that being said, I had to #change a lot of my old ways and some of these changes has sparked an onslaught of #criticism in my life and not from #conservatives and fox news supporters as you would expect but from people that call themselves "Muslims" smh. My wife has got criticism for wearing #hijab and I have been told sooooo many times to shave my beard. I have been called an #extremist and have been associated with certain #militant groups that I have no connection with at all. I have been #harrased by people even in the masjid! Its so crazy how these so called Muslims will see me as a #threat to them somehow when I am doing nothing and saying nothing to them I am merely following the word of Allah (swt) & the #sunnah of our #beloved #ProphetMohamed (saws). --> to these people that call themselves Muslims... please realize that YOU not us are the problem and a main reason why #Islam has such a bad image today. These people that fear the blame of the blamers are actually doing MORE damage to our #deen than all of the #terrorists put together because you are perpetuating #falsehood in our religion. Dont you have any #taqwa or fear of Allah? I pray that these misguided muslims will one day #wakeup and realize that this life is a test. Allah wants to see how we react to this test. Hold firm to the deen of Islam, the quran and the sunnah and stop trying to misguide other Muslims by planting seeds of fear and confusion. Salaam alaikum. 2d

eruchdah Man is a rational animal - so at least I have been told. Throughout my later teens to now, I have been searching for evidence in favor of this statement, but so far I have not had the good fortune to come across it. On the contrary, I have learned that the world is plunging continually into madness. I have learned that great nations, formerly leaders of civilizations, led astray by preachers of bombastic nonsense. I have learned about cruelty, persecution, and superstition increasing by leaps and bounds, until we have almost until the point where praise of rationality is held to mark a man as an old, fogy, regrettably surviving from a bygone age.

All of this is depressing, but gloom is a useless emotion. In order to escape from it, I have been driven to study the past with more attention that I had formerly given to it, and have found, as Eramus found, that madness is eviditable, and yet, the human race has survived. The madness of our own time are easier to beat when they are against the background of past madness.

The discovery that man can be scientifically manipulated by superstition, and that governments can turn large masses this way or that as they choose, is one of the causes of our misfortune. There is as much difference between a collection of mentally free citizens and a community, moulded by modern methods of propaganda as there is between raw material and battleships.
By promoting nonsense, it unifiies propaganda and generates collective enthusiasm. If all governments taught the same nonsense, the harm would not be so great. Unfortunately, each has its own brand, and the diversity serves to produce hostility between the devotees of different creeds. If there is ever be peace in this world, governments will have to agree either to inculcate no dogmas, or all to inculcate the same. The former, I fear, is a utopian ideal, but perhaps they could agree to teach collectively that all public men, everywhere, are completely virtuous and wise. Perhaps after the next war the surviving politicians may find it prudent to combine the two.
