Graphic Photos of Blogger Hacked To Death In Bangladesh Emerge Online Amid Protests



Posted in: , ,

Dr Avijit Roy was a blogger and author who spoke out for free-thinking and campained for freedom of religion. Though based in the United States, he sought to bring change to his country of origin, Bangladesh. And now, while on a visit to the capital of that country for a book fair where he and his wife were to speak, he was hacked to death by religious bigots right on the street.

Now, graphic and brutal images are currently being circulated by extremists on social media, which show Roy dead on a sidewalk in Dhaka, Bangladesh with his wounded wife, Rafida Ahmed, standing over his body. However on RML, we'll chose to remember the blogger as a human being, and grant him the dignity which his killers have taken away. Dr Roy was a husband and father of one. May his soul rest in peace.
