        this is unacceptable that it happened without the knowledge of Bangladeshi authorities-taking into consideration of that area's importance -no security measures were taken specially when the govt arrested more than 3000 suspects recently? no intelligence from authorities?what about the hacking of Hindu priests in last 2 days ?or if ISI using ISIS connected individuals working in the govt agencies ?

          Get to India all Hindus, Buddhists and such minorities from Bangladesh. Small countries like it will be vulnerable to such attacks as they lack the required resources and military capability to defend themselves.

            This is not the end of such atrocities but only a beginning. India should offer to Bangladesh both humanitarian and military support.

              It was holy month of Ramadan that is why she was not raped before being killed. Religion of peace strikes again.

                Being in a country like bangladesh, you have yourself to blame for your death, just like being in country like Iraq, Syria or papistan
