Hindu tailor hacked to death in Bangladesh; Government says ISIS has 'no presence' there

As Twitchy reported, an LGBT activist and USAID worker was hacked to death along with his companion last week in Bangladesh, leading the U.S. State Department to express its outrage.


On Saturday, a Hindu tailor who spent three weeks in jail after being charged with hurting religious sentiments by making derogatory comments about the Prophet Mohammed was also hacked to death in Bangladesh by men with machetes.


As the story says, ISIS has claimed responsibility for that attack, as well as other machete attacks that killed a student activist, a Hindu priest, and a university professor, but the government says that’s not possible as there is no ISIS presence in Bangladesh.

… the government denies that international Islamists such as the IS group or Al-Qaeda have a presence in the country, blaming homegrown militants for the killings instead.

“There is no presence of Islamic State in this country. The claim has no base,” Bangladesh home minister Asaduzzaman Khan told The Daily Star newspaper of the IS group claim Saturday.

“At least 30 members of religious minorities, secular activists, foreigners and intellectuals have been murdered in Bangladesh in the past three years,” AFP reports, “including two gay activists and a liberal professor in the past eight days alone.”

Kerry spoke last week at the Baker Institute for Public Policy at Rice University on the topic of religion and foreign policy.


Kerry made certain to point out the shortcomings of the United States in its treatment of religious minorities, although non-Muslim Americans fall short of “barbaric,” rating only as “despicable.”
