Here’s another reason why we don’t see more genuine Islamic reformers speaking out against jihad violence and Islamic supremacism. “Bangladesh: Prosecutor of Islamists Shot Dead,” from AKI, with thanks to Sr. Soph:
Dhaka, 12 April (AKI) – A prosecutor involved in a case against six Islamic militants in Bangladesh who were hanged two weeks ago, was shot dead by unidentified gunmen in the southern town of Jhalakathi, according to the Bangladeshi newspaper The Daily Star. Hyder Hossain was killed as he came out of a mosque after prayers near his home on Wednesday night. The Daily Star reported that Hyder had recently said that several people identifying themselves a members of the banned Islamic group Jamaatul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) were threatening him over the telephone following the execution of the six JMB members.
Hyder was the special public prosecutor in the case involving the murder of two judges in November 2005 in the wake of a series of bombings in Bangladesh….
The JMB wants to establish Sharia Islamic law in Bangladesh and is one of three Islamic groups outlawed after the authorities linked them to the series of bomb attacks in 2005.
