Bangladesh arrests publisher for ‘offensive’ book on Islam

DHAKA: Bangladesh police have arrested and charged a publisher after extremists in the Muslim-majority nation warned of violent protests over one of his books which they deemed offensive, an officer said Tuesday.

Police also shut down Shamsuzzoha Manik’s stall at the country’s book fair in Dhaka where he was selling copies of “Islam Bitorko” (Islam Debate), which includes a controversial chapter on sex and Muslims.
