May 25 (Reuters) – An IT manager at a subsidiary of Coca-Cola Co was one of two men arrested in Bangladesh on suspicion of planning to fight for Islamic State in Syria, police and company sources said on Monday.

The pair were detained during a raid in the capital, Dhaka, on Sunday night, said Sheikh Nazmul Alam, a senior official of the police detective branch.

One man, Aminul Islam, was the information technology head of a multinational company, and worked as a regional coordinator for Islamic State, while the other, Sakib Bin Kamal, was a teacher at a school in Dhaka, he added…

…At least 12 people have been arrested in Bangladesh in recent months for suspected involvement with Islamic State, and reports of its growing influence have raised fears across South Asia.

It remains unclear whether militants organising under its name are acting on their own or as part of a centralised initiative from the Middle East…

      Multiculturalism sucks. Its opposite is called this [drum roll, please]: culture.

      Remember when nations had culture? Remember when it was a given that most if not all of your neighbours could speak English and shared some opinions, views, and outlooks of the vast majority of your other neighbours?

      This Coca Cola and Bennetton style diversity propaganda is destructive at worst and misleading at best.
