The world yawns at this thuggery and bloodlust. Atheist writer Avijit Roy was murdered in Bnagladesh recently; the international media barely took notice. This second and similar murder will get even less notice. And it’s understandable — it isn’t as if “Islamophobia” were being committed. That would be news; but Muslims murder another writer who insulted Islam? That’s not news: the mainstream media wouldn’t want to insult Islam by covering such a thing.

The killers are Zikrullah, 22, a student of Hathajari Madrasa in Chittagong and Ariful Islam, 22, student of Darul Ulum Madrasa, Mirpur 1 in Dhaka, said Biplop Kumar Sarker, deputy commissioner of Tejgaon Divison.
Another killer Abu Taher managed to flee from the scene. No detail was found regarding him, the police official added.
Zikrullah, son of Mainuddin, hailed from Raipura of Narsingdi and Ariful Islam, son of Tazul Islam, came from Barkawlia of Comilla.
“They killed Oyasiqur for his writings against Islam,” the detained killers confessed to the police during primary interrogation.
One mastermind Masum is behind the killing, they also confessed, the police official said.
On Sunday night, mastermind Masum, two madrasa students Zikrullah and Ariful Islam, and Abu Taher made plan, in a meeting at Hatirjheel in Dhaka, to kill Oyasiqur, said Biplop.
Masum gave Zikrullah three machetes on Sunday night to complete the mission….
