A student has been murdered in Bangladesh after posting comments against Islamic extremists on his Facebook page, the latest in a series of killings of secular activists and bloggers in the country.
Nazimuddin Samad, 26, was attacked on Wednesday night near his university in Dhaka by men carrying machetes.
Dhaka Metropolitan Police’s deputy commissioner Syed Nurul Islam said: ‘It is a case of targeted killing. But no group has claimed responsibility.
‘At least four assailants hacked Nazimuddin Samad’s head with a machete on Wednesday night. As he fell down, one of them shot him with a pistol from close range. He died on the spot.’
The Dhaka Tribune said the assailants shouted Allahu Akbar (God is Great) as they attacked Samad, an atheist, on a busy road near Dhaka’s Jagannath University, where he was studying law.
Samad had posted several comments on Facebook criticising radical Islam and mocking hardline Islamists and their attitude to women’s rights.
In one he described religion as ‘the most barbaric invention’ and in another mocked a hardline Muslim cleric who was recently arrested for raping a young boy.
‘In raping a boy, the Hefajat-e-Islam cleric is only carrying out his religious duty. It’s the first step towards establishing pure Islam,’ wrote Samad sarcastically, referring to a hardline group the cleric belongs to.
Samad had only recently arrived in Dhaka from the northeastern city of Sylhet to study law.
Imran Sarker, who leads Bangladesh’s largest online secular activist group, said Samad had joined nationwide protests in 2013 against top Islamist leaders accused of committing war crimes during the country’s war of independence against Pakistan.
‘He was a secular online activist and a loud voice against any social injustice. He was against Islamic fundamentalism,’ said Sarker, head of the Bangladesh Bloggers Association.
At least four atheist bloggers and a secular publisher were hacked to death last year.
Police have arrested members of a banned group called the Ansarullah Bangla Team in connection with those murders but have yet to prosecute them.
Secular groups have called nationwide protests and rallies to demand more protection for publishers, bloggers and writers, some of whom have fled Bangladesh or gone into hiding.
Several foreigners have also been murdered in recent months in Bangladesh, which has also suffered attacks on minority Sufi and Shi’ite Muslims.
The pressure group PEN America, which supports free speech, said after Samad’s murder: ‘The persistent failure of the Bangladeshi government and the international community to better protect threatened thinkers has created a climate of fear and direct threat to free thought in the country.’
Gulam Rabbi Chowdhury, a secular activist and childhood friend of Samad, said he did not believe the victim had ever received threats from Islamist groups over his Facebook posts.
