A newly-surfaced jihadist group in Bangladesh is targeting Sheikh Hasina, former Prime Minister and daughter of the founding father of Bangladesh, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. One principal reason why may be that she is a champion of democracy. From ANI:
An Islamic outfit called the Hikmat-ul-Jihad has claimed responsibility for Saturday’s grenade attack at an Awami League rally that was addressed by former Bangladesh premier Sheikh Hasina.
In an e-mail to a Bangla daily here, the HUJ also issued a fresh threat to kill Sheikh Hasina within a week.
“Don’t think that Sheikh Hasina is out of danger. We missed out the previous chance, but now we are very careful about our mission. Tell her to be prepared. We are coming and this time we will accomplish our target within seven days,” the message addressed to the Daily Prothom Alo said.
