Svenska P.E.N. And ABF organised a seminar on the recent blogger killing, the rise of fundamentalism in Bangladesh, and the hypocritical silence of ongoing government on these facts. A premier has also been made of 'Freethinking Apocalypse' documentary, directed by Foring Camelia and assisted by D.M.S Sultan on last 11th April, 2016 in Stockholm, Sweden.
