And so the carnage continues. A Bengali blogger, Oyasiqur Rhaman, was hacked to death on Monday morning by three assailants after posting satirical comments against extremist Muslims. These so called “Muslims” should be punished by the full extent of the law, and those that have been promoting and influencing people to commit such hateful acts should also be prosecuted.

The fourth successor of the Prophet Muhammad, Ali ibn Abi Talib, once stated, “Know that people are of two types. Either they are your brothers in faith, or your equals in humanity.” To murder a fellow human being simply because he or she insults you, whether they be Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Hindu or an atheist, is simply barbaric.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association of Metro Detroit mourns the loss of our fellow human being and grieves with all Bengalis.
