Bangladesh 6

Police in Bangladesh stormed a community center outside the capital of Dhaka early Friday and arrested 27 men. Their crime? They’re suspected of being gay. Zahangir Hossain Matobbar, the commander of Bangladesh’s Rapid Action Battalion, told the Associated Press that the suspects — mostly students between the ages of 20 and 30 — were arrested at the community center where they apparently gathered every two months to “stay overnight for partying.” Police said they recovered illegal drugs and condoms in their possession and the men would be charged with drug offenses rather than Bangladesh’s colonial-era sodomy law, because they were detained before they had sex, the AP report said. However, a different RAB spokesman told Agence France-Presse that the men had been arrested “for homosexuality” and that it had not yet been determined how they would be formally charged. Homosexual acts are illegal in Muslim-majority Bangladesh — as in more than 70 other countries in the world, including neighboring India. The mass arrests come on the heels of a recent high-profile case in Indonesia, where two men were sentenced to public lashings for gay sex under a strict new provincial sharia law. Bangladesh’s legal code prohibits “unnatural offenses,” which it says includes voluntary “carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any man, woman or animal.” The offense is punishable with life in prison. <SNIP> LINK

Raudha Athif (18 May 1996 – 29 March 2017) was a Maldivian Vogue model and medical student who was killed in Rajshahi, Bangladesh. Raudha studied in Hiriya School and Villa International High School in the Maldives. She did an environmental campaign on Maldivian National Television when she was 14. Raudha became known in the Maldives in 2014 after a photoshoot with a Maldivian photographer. She was featured on the cover of Vogue India in October 2016. She started medical school in Islami Bank Medical College in Rajshahi, Bangladesh. She had a scholarship from the Department of Higher Education of Maldives. Raudha was found dead in her dorm room in Rajshahi Islami Bank Medical College on 29 March 2017. A post-mortem was carried out in Rajshahi Medical College Hospital. The post-mortem began before her father gave his consent. Her family alleged she was killed by an Islamic extremist for “refusing to wear Islamic clothing”. The post-mortem by three doctors concluded it was a suicide. Her death was primarily investigated by Rajshahi Metropolitan Police, who were aided by a visiting Maldives Police Service team. She was buried in Hetemkha Graveyard, Rajshahi. Her funeral was attended by her family members and the Maldivian Ambassador to Bangladesh, Aishath Shann Shakir. Raudha’s father, Mohamed Athif, is also a doctor and disputes her death was a suicide. Her father filed a case on 10 April 2017 against Sirat Parvin, a Kashmiri student and her roommate. On 24 April 2017 her body was exhumed by the Criminal Investigation Department who performed a second autopsy. According to a Criminal Investigation Department investigation, Raudha committed suicide. Her death was investigated by 60 Minutes in Australia who suggested there might be foul play involved.

Bangladesh Pakis were not given telephones until 2017. Bengalis are the stupidest pakis around. Do not confuse them for pakis from India that can obtain employment and not commit too much crime.
Victims Sarowar and Runi

The murder of Sagar Sarowar and Meherun Runi (also known as the Sagar-Runi murder case) is about the unsolved double murder case of two well-known, married Bangladeshi journalists who were stabbed to death for a document of proof they have gathered against the owner of ATN Bangla murderer Mahfuzur Rahman in their Dhaka apartment on 11 February 2012 in Bangladesh.The case is still open and DNA testing showed that it was possible two men were involved in the murder. The couple’s murder received high-level political attention and widespread media coverage in Bangladesh, and attracted German interest as Sarowar had lived in Germany and had worked as a journalist for Deutsche Welle. The case was also closely watched by journalists and international press freedom organisations. The couple’s murder also unified organisations representing Bangladeshi journalists that had once been separate. A representative of the family said, “In the past 25 years, this has been the most talked/written about, prioritized case in Bangladesh. A demonstration was called in 2017 for the fifth anniversary of the murder in order to call for the release of the investigation report LINK
