Bangladeshi Blogger Seeks Asylum In Canada

He won’t get it in Canada:

A woman living in Montreal’s West Island says her husband, a secular poet and essayist, cannot stay in Bangladesh because his life is still in danger.

Monika Mistry says Tareq Rahim was shot in the stomach and stabbed during a raid by religious extremists.

“He’s in the hospital right now, he was going through several operations and hopefully he is out of danger,” Mistry told CBC Montreal’s Daybreak.

The attack happened on Oct. 31, during a raid at a publishing house in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, Mistry said.

“They didn’t even talk, they just started stabbing,” she said.

He was stabbed three times in the head and about 10 times on his hands.

He may lose two of his fingers.

    He is obviously islamophobic and will not be allowed in Canada under our new “Happy Ways” policy.

      J. Trudeau supports the Muslim extremists who shot Mr. Rahim.

    Slightly OT but

    Nice to see that even the lefty SMH has published a few comments that aren’t from the usual inner-city latte set.

    Since the Yanks don’t seem to be using it right now, perhaps we could steal their design as our response. Would look good with the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge in the foreground.

      That should have been the rebuilt world trade center.

        I was thinking of an ever growing pyramid of human skulls of the followers of the religion of peace.

    • Cool!

      I liked Jonah Goldberg’s suggestion of rebuilding the Twin Towers to have been the tallest in the world and named them Freedom and Unity as an ‘FU’ to the terrorists. (And with antiaircraft batteries on the top of each.)

    Seems like that is someone who could use our help. One day though those Islamoloons will be stabbing people over here.

    No way the Turd will let him in Canada!
