I was born in Bangladesh and fled the country only because of Islamist voilence. After every friday prayers , Imams used to deliver sermon on Jehad and muslims were charged to hunt kaffirs. Hindus were significant minority so the obvious targets were Hindus .

The muslims mobs, armed with swords , daggers , knives and bamboo sticks used to shout the slogan " Ekto ekto Hindu dhar , Hindu Dharey Tiffin Kar " which means in Bengali " catch hindus one by one and make them tiffin or kill them and make a tiffin ( meal)" and a result every friday innocent men , women and children lost lives. I have lost many family members in this sort of Islamist voilence.

First one to oppose Islamist violence was Mrs.Tasleema Nasreen and she wrote a book " Lajja " ( In Bengali "Shame") and clearly condemned Islamism. As a result mullahs issued "Fatwa" to lynch her. She fled the country and now she is in India and some time Europe . She cannot return to Bangladesh because of fear for her life.

In bangladesh Islamists allied with Bangladeshi Leader Khalida Jia and gained strength and now Islamists rule the roost in bangladesh and they are demadning shariat rule and talibaan type Islamic rule in Bangladesh.

Al Qaida number 2 leader Ayman Al Jawahiri also visited Bangladesh few years back and set up Terror Training camps in alliance with Jamat Islami . Bangladesh is becoming hotbed of Terrorist Islamism and will pose a threat to US interets in South Asia.

Its best to support those leaders / journalists / NGOs who oppose Islamism openly and work actively to stop them to take over.
