Bangladesh: Another terrorist attempt

Categories: South Asia, Bangladesh

Terrorism struck Bangladesh yet again. Adda reports [1]

It happened again very sadly. Terrorist group in Bangladesh yesterday killed two judges… This is an unfortunate trend in the recent years where fundamentalism and religious militancy in Bangladesh have been on rise. Since, Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) has allied with the wicked Jamat-i-Islami and Islami Forum to come to power; Islamist groups have been politically and administratively patronized in Bangladesh.

Rezwan at 3rd World View thinks there might be more than what appears [2]on the surface.

There is a deeper conspiracy in this. the Islamic millitants see the court as their biggest hurdle as after the Aug 17 bombings the police apprehended more than 500 extremists and banned two Islamic groups (JMB being one of them). The police is on the verge of exposing the kingpins and go for speedy trials of these elements. So crippling the legal system might be the agenda of those who wants to establish Islamic law in Bangladesh.

And Salaam Dhaka says [3]

Ladies and gentlemen, Jamaat has arrived. We can thank Begum Khaleda Zia for this one!
