Islamists Working Hard To Bomb Bangladish Into Sharia LawTopics: Understanding Islam
More Muslims have been killed by Muslims, more Muslims continue to be victimized by Muslims, and more Muslims are in danger of dying at the hands of Muslims than non-Muslims.Militant Islamists of banned groups such as the Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen, which seeks to turn mainly Muslim Bangladesh into a sharia-based Islamic state, continue to attempt to bomb Bangladesh into submission.
Today, as Bangladeshi leaders continue to play down the Islamist threat in Bangladesh - blaming media propaganda, at least five people were killed and more than 50 wounded when two bombs exploded during the morning rush hour on a crowded street in the northern town of Netrokona.
No one claimed responsibility for the blasts, but police blamed Islamist suicide bombers fighting for the introduction of sharia law in the mainly Muslim democracy. The suicide bomber (reportedly the first suicide bomber) arrived at the site on a bicycle just moments before the blast. Many of the victims were people on their way to work at offices, colleges and markets, just going about their daily lives, oblivious to what awaited them at the hands of a fellow Muslim with the twisted and deranged mind of an Islamist (radical militant Islamist).
