Bangladesh: Bloggers arrested for ‘defaming’ a dead and possibly mythical character

April 4, 2013

Betos poor widdle Muslims had dey’s feelins hurt…

Bangladesh police have arrested three atheist bloggers for allegedly defaming Islam and the Prophet Mohammed, police said Tuesday, amid calls from religious fundamentalists for an Internet crackdown.

The arrest of the three, who were paraded in handcuffs at a news conference, followed pressure from Islamists who have organised a march from all over the country to the capital to demand the death penalty for atheist bloggers.

“They have hurt the religious feelings of the people by writing against different religions and their prophets and founders including the Prophet Mohammed,” said deputy commissioner of Dhaka police, Molla Nazrul Islam.


All together now — “AAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWW!”

    I have removed your comments. Sorry for the inconvenience. I’m not aware myself of saying anything about email addresses, so if you were given any assurances about these they presumably came from the WordPress administrators. I certainly haven’t set out to make any email addresses public.

  2. Don’t know how to contact the blog administrator for religiousatrocities. I wish to remove a couple of comments I made 3 November 2012. It is concerning that someone tracked me through this site to find my email address (although you state it is never made public).
