Bangladesh: 46 dead as Muslims continue to riot over death sentence for Islamic supremacist leader Jihadwatch
I'm ok as i'm in city...in villages this persecution is huge. Anything can b happened anytime. I didn't come outside of home for last 3 days. We r very scared...
actually there is a Islamic terrorist party named Jamat E Islami...Bangladesh Supreme cout ordered hanging punishment to their main leader Saidi for his involvment in mass killing of millions of innocent Bengali Hindus & Muslims with the help of Pakistan during Bangladesh Liberation War in 1971. Many leaders of that party r war criminals like Saidi. Being failed to save Saidi now they took new policy of torturing minorities to put our secular govt. under pressure. The opposition party BNP which has been always against Hindus joined in this persecution. Govt. is trying its best to save us.
Already 20 temples r fully demolished & more 80 temples have been attacked several times. 200 Hindu houses r burnt. Almost 100 Hindus r badly injured. 45 Hindus dead including women & child.
We r giving prior to our temples for saving. They r mostly targeting temples & women.
The murderous outrage that any Islamic supremacist could be held accountable for his own wrongdoing continues in Bangladesh. "46 killed as violence over Islamist leader's death sentence continues in Bangladesh," from PTI, March 2 (thanks to all who sent this in):Dhaka: Violence continued unabated in Bangladesh on Friday as at least 46 people were killed in clashes that erupted after a top leader of fundamentalist Jamaat-e-Islami was handed down death penalty for "crimes against humanity" during the 1971 liberation war.
