Bangladesh LGBT Editor Murdered By Islamists – Liberals Silent!

I think we’re all aware that liberals’ concern for marginalized groups is politically motivated. If anyone disagrees with a specific policy towards a marginalized group, liberals can chant “racist, homophobe, islamophobe, transphobe,” or whatever the latest buzzword “phobia” is nowadays.

This is no more apparent than when it comes to liberals’ attitude towards Islam. Where are the feminists in the Western world when women are actually being oppressed in Muslim countries? I guess they’re too busy complaining about “manspreading.”

Here’s just the latest crime committed by Islamists – and liberals haven’t said a thing.

Police in Bangladesh say two people including a leading gay rights activist and editor at Bangladesh’s only LGBT magazine have been hacked to death.

The US ambassador to Bangladesh condemned the killing of Xulhaz Mannan, who also worked at the US embassy.

Another person was also injured when the attackers entered a Dhaka flat.

Since February last year suspected militants have killed several secular or atheist writers and members of religious minority groups.

The two men were murdered two days after a university teacher was hacked to death by suspected Islamist militants.

So-called Islamic State (IS) claimed responsibility – but the Bangladeshi government insists there is no IS presence in the country.

This is increasingly becoming a common occurrence in Bangladesh.

Earlier this month, a Bangladeshi law student who had expressed secular views online died when he was hacked with machetes and then shot in Dhaka.

Last year, four prominent secular bloggers were also killed with machetes.

The four bloggers had all appeared on a list of 84 “atheist bloggers” drawn up by Islamic groups in 2013 and widely circulated.


Such crimes are hardly uncommon, and often garner the public’s support. In Egypt, Pakistan, Malaysia, Jordan, and the Palestinian terroritories the majority of citizens support the death penalty for apostasy.

In Bangladesh, “only” 36% support the death penalty for leaving the religion.

How insane is that? Share this post on Facebook and Twitter to get the word out on the TRUTH about “moderate” Islam.
