Yesterday, the fourth killing of an atheist blogger in Bangladesh by Islamists was confirmed (machete hacking of course), Niloy Neel
The Islamists have stated a clear intention of killing anyone who dares to examine or critisize Islam. The Bangladeshi government has done nothing to stop the killings, yet insists it’s a secular nation.
Bangladesh has a blasphemy law, stating that anyone who insults or offends “religious sentiment of the people” are to be imprisoned for 14 years with a $120,000 (USD) fine. But this law has only been enforced against people insulting Islam.
So I’d like to propose some conventions for those of us in the west. I propose that we refer to Bangladesh as an Islamic nation bent on eradication of any non-muslim adherents. Because their sickening inaction shows that’s what their toothless government has been doing.
This is the fourth atheist blogger speaking the truth about Islam to be hacked to death by religious thugs in Bangladesh this year. There have been no arrests and not even any real indication of investigation by their government.
It’s time we stop giving Bangladesh the benefit of the doubt and call the Bangladeshi government what it is: A sharia regime with no concern for its citizens. It it too busy trying to be two-faced, attempting to present the image of a secular nation to the international community while allowing Islamist terrorism to run rampant within its borders. They’re worse than Saudi Arabia because they’re trying to lie to us, and I for one won’t take their deception lying down.
Fuck the Bangladeshi government, and don’t buy a single thing made in Bangladesh. Don’t give your money to religious genocide and intimidation. Since our governments in the west have yet to sanction them for their cowardly behavior, let us enact the sanctions ourselves.
