Atheist Blogger killed: A Turning point in Shahbag Protest.

Blogger Ahmed Rajib Haider 
By Anwar Hossain; A Blogger and Activist of Shahbag movement was found ddead last night, hours after the organizers decided to discontinue from today the 24 hour blockade. Like me many believes this is a turning point. Yesterday's killing prompted the organizers of Shahbag movment to abandon a plan to demonstrate in front of National Museum from 3:00pm to 10:00pm every day. The demonstration now will continue 24/7. 

In my last blog post i was worried about the security of these demonstrators. I wrote I don't know how secured they are, because Jamaat and Shibir will try to brake them out. I am very sure about that. But that will just ignite to the demonstration as a spark of fire! And spread it out in a violent form.Which is very expected as the strategy of Jamaat to stop the trial of ICT. And now it just have taken place. This is how a non violent and non political protest just colored as political and violent.

I think this will lead us in a bad political turmoil. Activists are very active in both side to spread messages through Facebook and Twitter. Both sides claiming and blaming  each other for the murder of that atheist blogger. This will divide the bloggers who are demonstrating to hang the war criminals.

Daily Amar Desh, Daily Sangram, and Daily Naya Digata, i mean the right wings media is publishing sensitive information which is not verified by any source, might lead the nation into a violent clash based on Religion.

This has happened many times! When these people i mean fanatics are wounded, -they just use the religion and religious feelings of our poor people who are still uneducated.

Bangladesh Awami Leaguge blammed Jamaat i Islam and its student wing Islami Chtra Shibir for this killing, but Jammat i Islam denied the accusation.   

How ever time might be the best answer to get a real picture. But killing of this blogger will be a turning point that i just understood. 


  1. Nothing is for sure ... just wait and see.

    1. What do you mean by that?

  2. Don't you read newspapers?

  3. All bloggers are not Atheist!! And there is no relation between blogging and being atheist.
