Nightmare for Muslims in Bangladesh ContinuesTim King Salem-News.com
"I highly condemn the abuse and torture by the law enforcement agencies demand a judicial investigation of the incident" - William Nicholas Gomes, Salem-News.com Human Rights Ambassador
(SACRAMENTO, CA) - The Bangladesh government has been murdering Muslims for speaking out and assembling in public.
"So many people killed at large, the streets were flooded with blood." This was the 5th May, as the narrator in the video below explains, just a month and a half ago.
Journalists were ordered out of the area, then the real bloodshed began, just as it did in Sri Lanka in 2009 when Buddhists set out to lay waste to Hindus in a horrific series of war crimes.
10,000 members of the state security forces were called in and they greeted the crowd with pure violence. People had no chance.
Is this really the effort of a government trying to be secular, trying to avoid Sharia law, or genocide? What Bangladesh's govt. has done is alienate and divide a largely Muslim population.
It began in Shahbag Square, where the 1971 Bangladesh revolution was staged, but there is a massive difference between that movement more than 30 years ago; a quest for political freedom, and the bloodbath Bangladeshi police and military forces unleashed on these people.
One person who has been following this developing story is our Human Rights Ambassador William Gomes in the UK, who was born and raised in Bangladesh who said:
The point is not to advocate for or against the Muslim faith, it is to stand with human beings who are being killed, who happen to be Muslim.
This is a documentary about Genocide In Bangladesh by a fascist government. Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina killed Muslim People on 5th-6th May 2013, may we never forget, Insha'Allah.

At the center of all of this, Tim pays extremely close attention to the safety and welfare of journalists worldwide.
