Editor of Bangladesh's LGBT magazine hacked to death.

(Dhaka)  The intolerance woven into the DNA of Islamists in Bangladesh reared its ugly head yet again when 6 men forced their way into the home of the editor of the only LGBT magazine in the county and hacked Xulhaz Mannan to death. Also murdered was another young man.

This brutal killing comes only 2 days after 58 year old Professor Rezaul Karim Siddique was hacked to death as he walked home, Siddique was the fourth professor from Rajshahi university to be murdered. In February, a court handed down life sentences to two Islamist militants for the murder of Prof Mohammad Yunus

Which in turn followed the brutal murder of Nazimuddin Samad who criticised religious bigotry at the start of the month.
Nazimuddin Samad,
Bangladesh has been plagued these past few years by the killings (Always knife attacks) of intellectual people by rabid illiterate thugs who subscribe to the view that Allah has written in the Koran, that they are the chosen people who will lead the country, but instead of the ballot box, they prefer to use the bullet and bomb in which to control the people.  Anybody with half a brain can out-debate these thugs, is deemed a threat to Islam (Usually by calling them an apostate, which according to Sharia law allows them to be officially killed) and as we have seen these past few years, removed from this plane of existence

I keep on hearing that Islam is a religion of peace and that they respect everybody, yet in any corner of the earth where Muslims form a majority, then you find out the hard way that Islam is not a religion of peace, that they do not respect anybody else and that their only goal is to control everybody and they use religious obedience in which to excuse their ugliness,  bigotry and murderous ways.
