Bangladesh is setting an important precedent, which would serve as an example to other countries that are plagued by religious fanaticism: No one is exempt from prosecution and punishment, not even religious leaders prosecuted in their own country.

Although I did not witness it, I know someone who did and the horror stories he has told would make you seethe in anger. I have a lot of respect for a government that would seek the truth and protect the innocent.

Thousands of women raped an way too low estimate. More like hundreds of thousands. Those that lived are too afraid to speak out.

Jamat e islami is a terrorist organization which uses Islam for their agenda. They killed our brothers in 1971 , they raped our sisters and mothers. Anyone speak against them is all on a sudden become non-muslim or some sort of atheist. Couple of days ago they killed a blogger just because he wrote against them. They are attacking our journalist. They are the enemy of free speech and democracy. Jam at-e-islami’s ideology is no different then Al-Kaida and they are no different then Osama Bin Laden. They are attacking non-Muslim hoping to start riot in the Bangladesh. They have blood in their hand.
