Nah jk, it's the other way around, obviously.

A 28-year-old atheist law student has been killed in Bangladesh. The attack follows a string of murders last year targeting outspoken advocates of secularism.

Nazimuddin Samad, a student at Jagannath University, was hacked and shot on Wednesday night while he was walking in Bangladesh's capital, Dhaka, The Associated Press reports. Multiple attackers, who were reportedly riding on a motorcycle, have not been identified. They escaped while praising Allah, according to the news service.



So glad I live in a country where I can be an atheist and only face social prejudice instead of straight up murder.

Yah, saw this yesterday. It really adds to the idea of the psychology behind these attacks, where looking for even the most obscure of people deviating becomes an obsession.

Yea, we should ban flag making, and burn all the flags that currently exist.

Good thing it's a "religion of peace", huh?



It has nothing to do with Islam. It's a Middle-Eastern African South Asian cultural problem.

yeah there is a big problem in Bangladesh rn w extremists attacking people. usually atheist bloggers. really unfortunate, as Bangladesh is a progressive country, so there are lots of targets for extremists. that's why I haven't visited in the past few years. very scared for my family (they're all Muslim but they're all also part of the normal population/progressive)

No religions are fit for human consumption, for the record. It amazes me there is so much bloodshed and horror inflicted in the name of make believe.

Uncontrolled, juvenile rage, vengeance, and resentment?

Were these "real Muslims" or "extremists" who actually have nothing to do with Islam?

Odd, I'd prefer it not be inflicted at all if possible.

you know that most of the victims of ISIS are Muslim, right??

idk how some americans can think that guns don't kill people but Islam kills people. extremists use both and those extremists need to be stopped

there are over 5000 Muslims in the US military currently working to help stop terrorism.

I grew up Muslim. I was not treated like chattel. My Muslim family and cousins are more progressive than my American agnostic family members.

For the record I'm generally a pacifist. Generally.

If people are going to be slaughtering each other I'd prefer it to be over something REAL, as opposed to make believe.

Probably our values aren't as different as you think.

criticism&education


We're not at all afraid to call out Christianity for its generally shitty stance on gay, trans, and women's rights, and rightfully so. It's definitely a huge root cause of problems. Yet when it comes to Muslims, we make all these excuses about 'their culture' and #notallmuslims and how that's not real islam and all that other deflective bullshit.

And with a single anecdote, all the data and dubious experts were banished from ever speaking honestly about Islam again, exiled in their disgrace to live out their petulant lives in self-loathing incredulity. So passes the twilight of the infidel, God willing.

who is making excuses here about culture??

what are you guys even arguing about? all I'm saying is that extremism really sucks. Islam didn't tell those fucked up crazy people to kill that atheist, and if you think somehow "getting rid of a religion" (good luck) is going to solve it, then please, be my guest.

there are a lot of issues in different predominantly Muslim countries and I agree that those need to be solved. you guys fighting on an internet forum about how dumb Islam is helps no one so stop acting righteous about it.
