Islam 101 is behind it…..(meaning: post-Hijra Islam)
Bangladesh in denial, al-Qaeda releases new video of gay rights activist’s assassination
Released online on Ansar al Islam Bangladesh’s Twitter account on Friday, the video once again reiterates the killing to be the work of al Qaeda in Indian Subcontinent (AQIS)
Even as the Bangladesh police dismiss the claims of al Qaeda-affiliated Ansar al Islam behind the twin murders in Dhaka, the militant group released a new video showing graphic images of gay rights activist Xulhaz Mannan and his friend Tanay Majumder, lying in pool of blood in the former’s apartment. The video comes three days after Ansar al Islam released a statement claiming responsibility for the murders of ‘pioneers of practicing and promoting homosexuality in Bangladesh.’
Released online on Ansar al Islam Bangladesh’s Twitter account on Friday, the video once again reiterates the killing to be the work of al Qaeda in Indian Subcontinent (AQIS). The video merges clips of international news media which extensively reported on the incident — Mannan was a USAID employee and US authorities including Secretary of State John Kerry and the ambassador of Bangladesh, Marcia Bernicat expressed outrage over his death — with graphic images of Mannan and Tanay’s bodies being dragged along a pool of blood in his apartment. The video indicates that the assailants had time to capture the ghastly images on film after the killings and flee in time.
