Three Muslims in Bangladesh attacked a blogger, accused of running an anti-Islamic blog, and beat him to death with meat cleavers, and on top of this, they forced his wife to watch. Here is a photo (thanks to Right Scoop) of the scene, with the corpse of the husband and the horrified wife covered in blood:
According to the report:
A blogger was hacked to death by three Muslim attackers in Bangladesh’s capital because of his anti-Islamic writings, police said today.
Washiqur Rahman Babu was declared dead as he was taken to a government hospital shortly after being attacked in Dhaka’s Tejgaon area.
Two suspects were captured and three meat cleavers were recovered, Dhaka Metropolitan Police official Biplob Kumar Sarker said.
The captured suspects were students at separate Islamic schools and the third suspect fled the scene, he added.
The killing took place a month after a prominent Bangladeshi-American blogger known for speaking out against religious extremism was hacked to death in Dhaka.
It was not immediately known what sort of blogging Babu did, Sarker said, adding that the suspects told police that they targeted him for his anti-Islamic writings.
Local media reported that Babu had a Facebook page that contained the line ‘Iamavijit’, meaning he was a follower of Avijit Roy, the Bangladeshi-American blogger hacked to death last month.
Roy, a Bangladesh-born U.S. citizen, died after he was attacked on Dhaka University campus when he was leaving a book fair with his wife.
