Third Atheist Blogger Hacked to Death by Muslim Assassins

Oyasiqur Rahman

Dhaka Bangladesh, 30 March 2015. Anti-Islam blogger Oyasiqur Rahman, 27, was attacked and killed by three-cleaver wielding men in broad daylight on a public street. He had been on his way to work and was just fifty feet from his home.

"Robbers are killing a man! Save Him!"

Bystanders raised the alarm and a number of people pursued the men, catching and holding two of them after a half-mile chase. News sources have described the quick-acting Samaritans as "hermaphrodites" or "transgendered persons" whose behavior contrasted with that of "locals" who were reluctant to get involved.   

The attackers immediately confessed to murdering Oyasiqur because of his anti-Islam views. They had been given their "assignment" the previous day by another man.

This is the third fatal machete or "cleaver" attack on atheist anti-Islam bloggers in the capital of Bangladesh. Ahmed Rajib Haider was killed in February, 2013 and just last month, visiting Bangladeshi-American writer Avijit Roy was killed after leaving a book conference. His wife Rafida Bonya Ahmedwere was also injured in the attack.

According to some reports the faces of Haider and Oyasiqur were so mangled as to be unrecognizable.

After the murder of Roy, Oyasiqur changed his Facebook avatar to include the above on a plain background, adding on his profile,
