Sword of Jihad & Mayhem“For humanity’s sake please do not say Islam is a religion of peace. Not anymore.” – Taslima Nasrin

A day after the devastating terror attack in Dhaka, exiled author Taslima Nasrin on Sunday said it was time people should stop saying Islam is a religion of peace.

Several news outlets including Indian Zee News brought out her reactions to the terror attack that came in a series of tweets by her.

She claimed that all the terrorists involved in the Dhaka attack were educated and belonged to rich families and rubbished the arguments that poverty makes somebody a terrorist.

Taslima quoted Saleem Samad that Bangladesh has been a major contributor to global terror. Bangladeshi men have joined terror outfits in 36 countries.

In another tweet, she said: “For humanity’s sake please do not say Islam is a religion of peace. Not anymore.”

On Friday, 20 people, mostly foreigners, including an Indian, were killed when militants stormed a bakery in Dhaka’s diplomatic enclave frequented by Westerners.

Bangladesh announced a two-day national mourning after the attack, which was condemned by the world leaders.

Taslima fled Bangladesh in 1994 in the uproar by radical Islamists and spent the next 10 years in exile in the West. The author recently received death threats from extremist groups linked to al-Qaeda. – Dhaka Tribune, 5 July 2016
