The Bangladesh Blogger Murders

Bangladesh is known to the world to be a secular, democratic Islamic nation, yet increasingly so there has been a growing intolerance to its non-Muslim and atheist bloggers. Social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter seem to be carefully monitored so that especially prominent and public critics of Islam can be brought to book and in extreme cases murdered.

Enclosed below is a link to the BBC World documentary highlighting the most recent examples. For those not residing in the UK, perhaps the mini documentary has been uploaded onto YouTube so just punch into the search bar ‘BBC Our World: The Bangladesh Blogger Murders’.
