The recent killing of Bangladeshi blogger Ananta Bijoy Das on May 12 was not the first of its kind in Bangladesh. In fact, there have been at least seven assassination attempts on secularist bloggers and activists like Das since 2013. Three of these murders have been in the past four months and the death threats continue. Yet this situation is barely known of or spoken about. International pressure on the Government of Bangledesh would protect those whose free speach is being ignored.
