Islam mandates death for those who leave the fold, so Nuruzzaman Labu and Nazmul Islam Shaon were simply carrying out the dictates of Islamic law. The implications of that fact are far-reaching, but no authorities in the West will ponder them.
“RAB arrests two JMB militants, thwarts plan to kill converted Christians,” by Nuruzzaman Labu, Dhaka Tribune, February 13, 2018 (thanks to Benedict):
Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has arrested two members of banned militant outfit Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) from Dhaka, one of whom was planning to murder Muslims who converted to Christianity.
A RAB 2 team, acting on a tip-off, caught Nuruzzaman Labu, 39, of Jhenaidah, and Nazmul Islam Shaon, 26, from Tejgaon industrial zone on Monday night.
Two machetes, extremist literature and $724 (about Tk60,300) were also seized from them, said RAB 2 Commander Lt Col Anwar Uz Zaman.
“During preliminary questioning, both of them have admitted to being active JMB members. We are trying to catch their associates,” he said.
Sources from RAB said Labu also admitted that he was involved with Jamaat-e-Islami several years ago. He was a madrasa student, but did not finish his studies.
Until Monday, he drove an autorickshaw to run reconnaissance on people who converted from Islam to Christianity.
A RAB official said: “During interrogation, Labu said he already had targeted a man to murder. He has been following that man regularly.
“Labu is also a regional leader of JMB at Jhenaidah and an expert in making bombs.”
The official said Labu joined JMB in 2015 through two men named Saif and Sagar, both of whom also went by several aliases such as Rubel, Robin, Maruf and Sohag.
Saif had motivated him into attacking and killing “the infidels”….
