    The Bangladeshi-American blogger who was hacked to death by machete-wielding Muslim extremists on his way back from a book fair had taken another stand against violent religious extremism days before his death.
    :(

    His wife, Rafida Ahmed, was also attacked but survived.

    Roy mentioned Rahman's threats explicitly, and said his latest book had 'hit the cranial nerve of Islamic fundamentalists' in the country of his birth.

    So sad. One cannot convert anybody with violence ; imo.
    I am sorry for his wife and child, and other loved ones.
    Apparently in the area he was attcked, freedom of speech does not exist.
    And there have been no arrests yet -- and there is a group that has openly taken responsibility. Smh.
    :moo:
