Today Faisal Arefin Dipan of 'Jagriti Prokashony' was hacked on the 2nd floor of Aziz Supermarket at Shahbagh. He was taken to Dhaka Medical College Hospital where the doctors declared him dead. This happened only a few hours after Ahmedur Rashid Chowdhury Tutul of 'Shuddhaswar' publishing house was hacked in his office at Lalmatia around 2:30 PM along with blogger Tarik Rahim and writer Ranadipam Basu. Tutul and Rahim are in critical condition.
I got enlightened when I read Quran and 'Sirat Rasul Allah' time and again and looked at my surrounding neighborhood after 9/11. Then I gathered some knowledge about other religions and history of religions. At the end I found that we could lead much better life in this world as a social being without any religion. I also got convinced that there is no afterworld. It has been a plain lie all along.
A hitherto unknown Islamist outfit, 'Ittahadul Mujahidin' from Sylhet has sent a letter to B D News office, Dhaka threatening to kill 19 persons including ministers, teachers, cultural activists, ganajagaran mancha organizers and bloggers.

An Islamist lives in this world to go to 'Bahist' in life hereafter. Allah has sent him to this world only to praise and propagate HIM. Islamist's main duty in this world is to praise Allah and adopt the millennium old culture of Arabia. He is obliged to try hard to convert all non-believers to Islam. He can be violent in this endeavor which is called Jihad. In Jihad he may succeed or die. But in any case Allah will grant him 'Bahist'. This imaginary 'Bahist' is the largest carrot before Islamists.
Life and social system in Arabia almost remained unchanged from the time of Muhammad to the beginning of twentieth century. Being a harsh desert land with sparse population of mostly nomadic Bedouins and a few settlements of Arabs with very little natural resources, Arabia was residing in inertia of rest from 7th century AD. For the same reasons, Arabia did not attract outside aggressors also.
Members of Awami League, BNP, JP, Hefajot-e Islam, Jamaat-e Islami, Chhatra Shibir, Awami Jubo League, Tablig-e Jamaat and thousand of Ulema etc. etc. have assembled in Shahbag, Dhaka. The members of these divergent groups have kept aside their differences and animosity and have come under a single umbrella to address a common burning issue for all of them, i.e."Islam is in danger in Bangladesh".
