NDTV reported: “Yesterday, the terror group ISIS had issued a chilling video threatening more attacks, saying: ‘What you witnessed in Bangladesh was a glimpse. This will repeat, repeat and repeat until you lose and we win and the sharia is established throughout the world.'” The Islamic State vows to fight on until “sharia is established throughout the world.” Hamas-linked CAIR fights against proposals to limit the spread of Sharia in the U.S. The “extremists” — the Islamic State — and the “moderates” — Hamas-linked CAIR — are working for the same goals.
Why would they bomb Eid prayers? That must mean they’re not really Muslim, right? Wrong. They consider their Muslim victims to be either heretics and apostates, or collateral damage. They’re trying to bring down the Bangladeshi government and replace it with one governed by Islamic law.
“Policeman is hacked to death as Islamists launch bomb attack on 200,000 worshippers celebrating Eid in Bangladesh just days after 20 people are slaughtered in Dhaka,” by Gareth Davies, Mailonline, July 7, 2016:
A policeman was hacked to death with a machete in an Islamist attack just days before 20 people were slaughtered in the Bangladeshi capital.
The terrorists carried out the latest deadly assault near a huge prayer in Kishoreganj where 200,000 people had gathered to celebrate the end of Ramadan.
A bomb was thrown in front of police at Azim Uddin High School, which was being used by officers a checkpoint, before Molotov cocktails were thrown and gunfire was exchanged between terrorists and police, killing four and injuring at least 12 on Thursday morning.
Local TV station Somoy TV broadcast footage of the gunfight and reported the slain policeman had been hacked to death, who was one of two officers killed.
The other two was a woman named Jharna Rani Bhoumik and one of the attackers, according to the Dhaka Tribune.
The officers killed have been identified as Zahirul Islam and Ansarul who died in the initial bomb blast and two suspects were arrested.
Six injured policemen were transferred to Mymensingh Medical College Hospital after the bomb was hurled at them at 9.30am.
A revolver, machete and hand bomb were all recovered from the scene and one of the suspects arrested had been injured by gunfire.
Azim Uddin High School is less than 500m from the Sholakia Eid congregation and the road nearby the school leads where 200,000 Muslims were praying.
It’s understood the terrorists were hiding inside the school, less than a mile away from the 200,000 Muslims celebrating Eid.
He was descending at the prayer by helicopter when the terrorists struck.
Mahbubur Rahman, a police officer in the district control room, said: ‘They threw a bomb at a police checkpost. A police constable was killed in the explosion. One attacker was killed and another was arrested.’
Tofazzal Hosain, who is the district’s deputy police chief, said several people had taken part in the attack and some had been armed with machetes – a hallmark of recent Islamist killings in Bangladesh.
