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.


The pic above is an “anti-blasphemy” protest that took place in Bangladesh in 2015. Lots of moderate Muslims on display there.

    Now why would anyone write a book which criticized a religion found by a man who raped a 9 year old girl after masturbating himself between her thighs for 3 years before that?

    Looks like a sea of stupid.

    • Bangladesh is a Muslim hellhole, hopefully to be drowned by the rising seas sometime this century.

    I guess the only positive thing that could be ever said about Pakistan is it’s not Bangladesh.
