COUNTER-JIHAD BLOGGER BEHEADED IN BANGLADESH
This blogger who wrote against jihad and sharia was found “with his head hacked apart with a machete.” Ahmed Rajib, aka Thaba Baba, had been “threatened frequently” by jihadists who were angry at his role in the anti-jihad protests and his writings against the religion.
The silence of the complicit lambs. Where is the media on this? If the Puff Ho covered this, they’d blame the blogger. The motto of the media is free speech for me, but not for thee.

Dhaka: A blogger who had been critical of Bangladesh’s Islamist groups was killed in the capital late on Friday, police said, a day after he attended a big rally against leaders of the country’s largest Islamic party.
Protests championed by the country’s bloggers have seen thousands of people take to the streets demanding the execution of leaders of the Jamaat-e-Islami party who are under trial for war crimes.
Clashes between police and Islamist protesters demanding the trials be halted have also rocked the capital.
Police found the body of Ahmed Rajib, 35 — better known by his online identity Thaba Baba — near his home in Dhaka’s Pallabi suburb, with his head hacked apart with a machete.
