I'm speechless ... Free thinker humanist Avijit Roy was killed by Islamic terrorists today. Avijit Roy (42) was an engineer,science writer,blogger,atheist,feminist,humanist,free thinker,human rights activist, courageous defender of reason and free speech, and the founder of mukto-Mona blog site for Bengali free thinkers. He lived in the USA, but came to Bangladesh for a week or so to attend the inauguration of his new books at the national book fair in Dhaka. After the inauguration of his book tonight he and his wife left the book fair at around 9 pm. And then when they were on their way to home and not far from the book fair, Islamic fanatics stopped their rickshaw, dragged them onto a sidewalk and hacked Avijit to death. The wife has been severely injured. Avijitâ€™s father Dr Ajoy Roy is a former professor of physics at the Dhaka university. He is also a writer and free thinker.
