According to the mainstream media, the blogger provoked them and incited them to hack him up.
“Blogger Critical of Islam Hacked to Death in India,” Truth Revolt, May 12, 2015
A blogger critical of Islam was hacked to death on Tuesday in India.
“Ananta Bijoy Das, 32, was killed Tuesday morning as he left his home on his way to work at a bank, police in the northeastern Bangladeshi city of Sylhet said.”
Sylhet Metropolitan Police Commissioner Kamrul Ahsan said Das was attacked by four masked gunman with cleavers and hacked to death. Unfortunately, there were few witness to the murder as Das was attacked early in the morning.
“It’s one after another after another,” said Imran Sarker, who heads the Blogger and Online Activists Network in Bangladesh. “It’s the same scenario again and again. It’s very troubling.”
This is the third murder this year of a writer who dared to criticize Islam. All of the murders took place in public on city streets.
In March, Washiqur Rahman, 27, was hacked to death by two men with knives and meat cleavers just outside his house as he headed to work at a travel agency in the capital, Dhaka.
In February, a Bangladesh-born American blogger, Avijit Roy, was similarly killed with machetes and knives as he walked back from a book fair in Dhaka.
Das was not just a critic of Islam but a critic of religion in general. CNN writes, “while he was critical of fundamentalism and the attack on secular thinkers, he was mostly concerned with championing science, a fellow blogger said. He was the editor of a local science magazine, Jukti (meaning, Reason) and wrote several books, including one work on Darwin.”
Das was a contributor at Mukto Mona, a blog started by another murder victim, Avijit Roy.
