‘Derogatory’ Bloggers in Custody in Bangladesh

Glad police in Bangladesh are cracking down on dangerous crime.


Police arrested three persons, including a student of Dhaka University, from different parts of the capital Monday night for writing “derogatory contents about Islam and Prophet Mohammad (pbuh)” on different Internet platforms.

The arrests came hot on the heels of a campaign by radical Islamist organisations which threatened of non-stop shutdown and tougher agitation if “atheist bloggers”, as they termed them, are not executed.
