The story at that blog post is ridiculous. And heartbreaking. I can't believe that blogger was denied a visa.

I heard about it on the radio, so sad. His death could have been prevented if Sweden had offered him refuge.
I can't remember the number, but many others on a 'list' have already been murdered, let's hope any others seeking to flee can be helped.

Taslima Nasrin has been brought to the US. (She's effectively been in exile in India since being chased out of Bangladesh in 1994 for being an atheist-feminist-all-around-"undesirable" person, but she'd recently decided she could no longer safely stay there.)

Oh, but Bangladeshi police have rightly determined who's to blame for bloggers being hacked to death: it's bloggers who cross the line and say things other people find offensive.

For fork's sake, why not also tell them not to wear a short skirt?

Well...women don't really wear short skirts in Bangladesh, but I'm sure if seone did, she would certainly be blamed for being sexually harassed or molested, as well as for generally mingling with men outside of her home, which is not encouraged.
