Bloggers asked not to cross the limit

  • Secular bloggers in Bangladesh have been told by the police not to cross the limit while writing on religious issues. Media reports quoted Inspector General of Police A.K.M. Shahidul Hoque as saying that "Do not cross the limit. Do not hurt anyone's religious belief". In the past six months four bloggers have been killed. The recent killing came on Friday when Niladri Chattopadhyay Niloy, a 28-year-old secular blogger, was hacked to death inside his home by unidentified assailants. The police have been criticized for failing to solve the cases of the four murders.
