Blogger Murdered in Bangladesh


FRIDAY 11:00 P.M. HONG KONG ONLY ON CNN.>>>A BRUTAL MURDER IS SHOWING THE DANGERS OF CRITICIZING RELIGION IN BANGLADESH. A GANG ARMED WITH MACHETES HACKED TO DEATH A SECULAR WRITER. >>THE MURDER WAS PREPLANNED. PROTESTERS TAKING TO THE STREETS AFTERWARDS DEMANDING JUSTICE FOR HIM. THE HOME MINISTER OF BANGLADESH SAYS THE GOVERNMENT IS DOING ITS BEST TO CATCH THE CRIMINALS.>>HE SAYS SO-CALLED BLOGGERS DO NOT HAVE ANY WRIGHTS TO USE THESE KIND OF LANGUAGES THERE ATTACK RELIGION. HE ADS NOBODY HAS THE RIGHT TO ATTACK RELIGIOUS LEADERS AND THE POPULATION OF BANGLADESH IS ALMOST 90% MUSLIM. WHEN IT BECAME INDEPENDENT IN 1971, LEADERS DECIDED THE COUNTRY SHOULD BE SECULAR. >>IN 1988 THEY DECLARED MUSLIM THE STATE RELIGION. LET’S GET MORE FROM A PROFESSOR AND EXPERT ON SOUTH ASIAN POLITICS AND POLITICAL ISLAM JOINING US VIA SKYPE FROM ILLINOIS AND THANKS FOR DOING SO PROFESSOR. FREEDOM OF SPEECH IS ENSHRINED IN THE CONSTITUTION BUT WHEN YOU HAVE SAYING WHAT THE HOME MINISTER SAID, THAT’S NOT A GLOWING ENDORSEMENT OF FREEDOM OF SPEECH. DOES FREEDOM OF SPEECH REALLY EXIST IN BANGLADESH?>>AS A MATTER OF FACT, IT IS UNDER THREAT FROM TWO SOURCES. ONE, MILITANT GROUPS THAT WE HAVE BEEN WAITING OVER THE LAST 14 MONTHS YOU MENTIONED THAT THERE ARE SIX KILLINGS BUT WE ARE ALSO WITNESSING THE SHRINKING AND FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION BEING STIFLED. THE THREAT IS FROM THE GOVERNMENT BECAUSE AS YOU CAN SEE INSTEAD OF PROTECTING THESE BLOGGERS, THE GOVERNMENT IS TAKING STEPS, WHICH IS WRITING JUSTIFICATION TO THIS KIND OF MURDERS. ON THE OTHER HAND, WE HAVE SEEN CRITICIZING THE GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN DANGEROUS NOWADAYS. AS FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION IS CONCERNED AND THE SPACE IS CONCERNED, IT IS SHRINKING QUITE FAST YOU REMEMBER VERY UNFORTUNATE. >>HELP US UNDERSTAND, THE PUBLISHER TO BE MURDERED, WHAT IS THE ENVIRONMENT THAT ALLOWS FOR THIS KIND OF BRUTAL PLAN MURDERS TO TAKE PLACE?>>YOU DON’T HAVE TO TAKE A BROADER LOOK AT THE SITUATION, IT’S A SEPARATE INDENT. THERE IS A PATTERN TO IT. BUT ALSO, IF YOU LOOK AT THE LARGEST POLITICAL SEED OVER THE PAST MONTHS, IF YOU LOOK AT THIS, THERE IS DEMONSTRATION. LAW AND ORDER SITUATION IS DETERIORATING FAST AND THERE HAVE BEEN, YOU KNOW, A CULTURAL ACTIVIST KILLED. SHE WAS BRUTALLY MURDERED AND THERE HAVE BEEN NO PROGRESS IN TOWNS OF INVESTIGATION. DEMONSTRATION AGAINST THAT AND WE HAVE SEEN THERE WAS A MASSIVE DEMONSTRATION AGAINST A PLANT TO ESTABLISH IN SOUTHERN BANGLADESH. POLICE AND FORCES HAVE TAKEN MEASURES, WHICH IS DISPROPORTION ET IN MANY INSTANCES, WHAT WE ARE WITNESSING IS THIS ENVIRONMENT WHERE THIS KIND OF THINGS ARE PROVIDING IMPUNITY TO CERTAIN PEOPLE AND THAT IS ENCOURAGING THE MILITANT GROUPS TO ACT LIKE THIS. >>YEAH, EXACTLY. I WAS GOING TO SAY, MOST OF THESE VICTIMS, I THINK IT’S FAIR TO SAY ARE NOT ANTI ISLAM. THEY ARE ANTI EXTREMISTS. THEY ARE AGAINST FUNDAMENTAL IS M AND THE GOVERNMENT IN ACTION AS YOU OUTLINED THERE BY NOT DOING ANYTHING, THEY ENCOURAGE THOSE EXTREMISTS TO TAKE REVENGE ON THE STREETS. SO WHAT IS HAPPENING TO PRESSURE THE GOVERNMENT TO CHANGE WHAT IT IS DOING?>>FIRST AND FOREMOST, THERE NEEDS TO BE THE SPACE NEED TO BE WIDENED. WHAT WE HAVE SEEN OVER THE LAST YEARS, THAT SPACE SHRUNK AND WHEN YOU’RE NOT ALLOWED TO SPEAK AND THAT YOU CANNOT DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN SPEAKING, AND SPEAKING AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT, IT IS VERY MUCH IMPORTANT THAT THE FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION, THE RIGHT BE PROTECTED SO THAT EVERYONE CAN SPEAK. SO IF YOU CREATE A CULTURE OF FEAR, IF YOU CREATE AN ENVIRONMENT WITH IMPUNITY PROVIDED TO CERTAIN PEOPLE, THAT ENCOURAGES OTHER PEOPLE TO ACT LIKE THIS AND IN MANY INSTANCES YOU HAVE TO ASK THE TIMING INVOLVED AND YOU HAVE TO ASK WHO BENEFITS OUT OF THIS KIND OF SITUATION AND THAT’S WHY THEY INSISTS IT NEEDS TO BE LOOKED INTO THE BROADER — WITHIN THE BROADER POLITICAL ENVIRONMENT AND THIS ENVIRONMENT IS NOT VERY DEMOCKTIVE. >>WHEN YOU SAY THERE IS NO JUSTICE, I UNDERSTAND THE JUDICIARY SYSTEM IS FILLED WITH ISLAMIST SYMPATHIZERS AND CORRUPTION, AS WELL, IS THAT CORRECT?>>YES, BUT ALSO, WHAT WE SEE AND HOW IT’S BEING APPROACHED. IF YOU LOOK AT THE OVERALL POLITICAL ENVIRONMENT AND YOU CANNOT SIMPLY HAVE ONE INSTITUTION WHICH ACT INDEPENDENTLY WITHOUT ANY KIND OF RESTRAINT BUT WHAT WE HAVE SEEN THAT THE INSTITUTIONS INCLUDING THE ELECTION COMMISSION AND OTHERS, WHICH ARE BEING SO POLITICIZED IN A MANNER AND BEEN HUGE FOR IMMEDIATE POLITICAL GAINS, THAT HAS COST THE NATION VERY DEARLY AND IF IT CONTINUES, WHETHER IT’S JUDICIARY OR WHETHER ADMINISTRATION, CENTRAL ELEMENT IS THAT THERE HAS TO BE A DEMOCRACY SPACE. EVERYONE NEEDS THE RIGHT TO SPEAK. SOME OF THE THINGS GOVERNMENT DO NOT LIKE BUT HAVE TO ACCEPT IT IFEMOCRACYDEMOCRACY, THEY HAVE TO ACCEPT IT. >>I SAW A QUOTE IN THE NEW YORK TIMES WITH A BLOGGER SAYING EVERYONE IS WAITING TO SEE WHO IS NEXT. THAT OBVIOUSLY SPEAKS TO THE DEEP FEAR. WE’LL HAVE TO LEAVE IT

  1. islam is a religion of peace………if you disagree you die. filthy fucking cunts

  2. CNN its not religion as a whole is not to blame for this cold blooded murder but Islam the alleged religion of peace!

  3. 0:34
    But it's okay for closed minded extremists to go out and kill those bloggers??????
    Please retire early home minister.

  4. Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep

  5. I was too stubborn to see that those who insulted islam were right, i thought it was just christians who wanted to be the only religion, but its really just people who want peace and a safe world.

  6. NO PLACE OF ATHIEST/COMMUNIST/ZIONIST IN MY COUNTRY BURN THESE MF ALIVE LONG LIVE PEOPLES REPUBLIC OF BANGLADESH

  7. South Asian politics is complicated. The guy wasn't enough anti-Islam, but his last facebook post was about anti-government. These murders, and police failed to capture the criminals are part of a huge plan.

  8. These murderous savages are the kinds of people that cultural marxist Bernie Sanders and his mindless zombies will welcome with open arms. Trump 2016 or the killing blow will be dealt to our already fractured western countries.

  9. and this is why America is great all those trolls online would died if they lived in that country. such a blessing to be in America

  10. Bangladesh has a very extremist element with in that country, this is very dark times for free thinkers,

  11. Again,…this has been happening for years now and there are list of bloggers who are targeted, this has been known for year now too.

    It's that government that's really not doing anything about it and by habitually looking the other way they are infact encouraging these murders to continue doing so, it's consent by a clear policy of inaction on the side of Bangladesh political elite.

  12. CNN IS ALSO SHOWING YELLOW JOURNALISM!!! WITHOUT INVESTIGATING THE ACTUAL SITUATION!! ACTUAL FACTS!!!
    HERE FOR FOR THE CONCERN OF ALL VIEWERS I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THE TRUTH—HE AS WELL AS THE ALL OTHER DEAD BLOGGERS WERE CRITICIZING THE BELIEF OF MAJORITY MUSLIMS WITH VULGAR NASTY WORDS AND SENTENCES. IS THIS CALLED SECULARISM OR FREETHINKING THAT ATTACKS HUMILIATES OTHERS FAITH BELIEVES!!!!
    PLEASE REPLY THIS.
    BUT I ALSO WILL SAY THAT WHATEVER HE WROTE, THERE IS NO RIGHT TO KILL HIM. RATHER IN MOST OF CASES THEY ARE KILLED FOR THEIR PERSONAL CONFLICT AS THEY ALL HAVE BAD COMPANION, DOING ILL POLITICS WITH RULING PARTY ETC. PLEASE INVESTIGATE…WITHOUT INVESTIGATE YOU CAN'T SAY WHO FOR WHAT REASON KILLED HIM..
    AND I ALSO WILL SAY THERE IS NO RIGHT TO CRITICIZE THE BELIEF, THE RELIGIOUS LEADERS OR PROPHETS WITH VULGAR, NASTY WORDS. YOU CAN CRITICIZE, DISCUSS BUT WITH GOOD FAIR WORDS,NO PROBLEM.
    HERE CNN IS SHOWING HIM AS A HERO
    BUT HE IS ALSO A CRIMINAL WHO WITH HIS HATEFUL NASTY VULGAR WORDS ATTACKED THE RELIGIOUS BILEIF OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE,
    WHO, FROM WHERE, IN WHICH IDEOLOGY EITHER SECULARISM OR WHATEVER HAVE GIVEN HIM SUCH RIGHTS??
    IF I CRITICIZE JESUS CHRIST AND HIS TEACHINGS WITH VERY VULGAR WORDS, WILL YOU SUPPORT ME???
    AS HE WAS ATTACKING ISLAM SO CNN FOCUSED HIM, WHAT A YELLOW JOURNALISM!!!!
    2 DAYS AGO 4 PEOPLE WERE SHOT BY POLICEMAN, THEN WHERE WERE YOU??? YOUR REPORT??
    LOOK AT BANGLADESH…EVERYDAY MANY MUSLIMS, OPPOSITION PARTY LEADERS, PEOPLE ARE BEING KILLED, THEN WHRE IS CNN, WHRE IS IT'S REPORT??
    SHAME ..SHAME ……WE ALSO CAN'T TRUST YOU AS LIKE OURS CORRUPTED GOVT. CONTROLLED MEDIA…
    SHAME ON CNN…..SHAME….

  13. +Csfranklin that's only in theory but in practice '' liberals '' r the one who provides confidence to these jihadi islamists by constantly providing intellectual protection to them & defending their violent actions and oppose any crackdown on them

  14. I used to be a Muslim (athiest now) and I can assure to you that most of them are not friendly , just tell them that God is fake and the Quran is full of lies and idiocy and you'll see what will happen to you.

  15. All stupid became in one unit.
    If he become secular.Its up to him..Islam never force anyone.
    why This blogger wrote against islam?..
    Is not his fault?.
    The government should have punished him.
    But the government didn't so common people took action.

    If criticism of any religion is allowed then killing him also accepted.

  16. cough cough bullshit cough cough.

    Lmao! people need to wake up to CNN's fake news segments. These psychopaths need to be in prison for this shit. Fuck you CNN.

  17. no rights! ! ! it's slowly starting to happen hear in America. stupid people need to stand up for what is right and not bend down in cowardice.

  18. ahhaha so muslims want special protection. but they are so nice and accepting of others, ummm. that was sarcasm duh

  19. Bangladesh is a country where most people are Pak genre Muslims. India have done so much for their freedom but they don't have any gratitude.
