American Anti-Islam Blogger and His Wife Butchered by Muslims
Dhu al-Faqar was one of the 9 swords owned by the Islamic Prophet Muhammad, and with it he claims he was “made victorious through terror.” Appropriately named “cleaver of vertebrae,” the ancient weapon was used to butcher his enemies who insulted Islam.
Emulating the “perfect man” of Islam, a group of Islamists brutally hacked an American blogger to death on a public street, leaving him and his wife in a pool of blood.
Dr. Avijit Roy, 42, from Atlanta, Georgia was viciously dragged from a rickshaw and butchered in the middle of the street in Dhaka, Bangladesh on Thursday. His wife Rafida Ahmed, 45, was also brutally attacked when she tried to defend her husband from the machete-weilding Muslims, the Daily Mailreports.
Roy was pronounced dead at a local hospital due to three deep gashes in his head among others. Ahmed has reportedly lost a finger and was also seriously injured in the attack, according to The Guardian.
Police believe that at least two Muslim men, who are believed to have links to Dhaka university, attacked Roy that night, dumping their weapons and fleeing into the crowd.
Since the attack, a militant Muslim group called Ansar Bangla 7 has claimed responsibility for the attack, stating that they killed Roy because of his “crime against Islam.”
Roy was originally from Bangladesh and returned to the country for a book fair. According to Dhaka Tribune, this spelled out his doom, as religious extremist Farabi Shafiur Rahman threatened, “Avijit Roy lives in America. So it’s not possible to kill him now. He will be killed as soon as he returns home. It’s now time to openly kill those atheists who will make obscene comments against Allah and His Messenger, giving them slow, painful death… In Bangladesh, either we Muslims will survive or the atheists will.”
Rahman remains a suspect in Roy’s murder, although police have not made any arrests.
Roy has written several books detailing the illogical and violent nature of Islam. Whether or not writing these particular works are his alleged “crime against Islam,” the same old song of the Obama administration is being sung, according to USA Today:
“This was not just an attack against a person, but a cowardly assault on the universal principles enshrined in Bangladesh’s constitution and the country’s proud tradition of free intellectual and religious discourse,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters in Washington.
She said the U.S. could not ascribe the motive for the killing, and was ready to help in the investigation if asked.
