(12 September 1972 – 26 February 2015)
Bangladeshi-American Free-Thinker, science writer & secular-humanist Avijit Roy was brutally hacked to death near National Book Fair, in Dhaka University Area, Dhaka, Bangladesh on 26 February, 2015.
There were numerous threats to kill him from religious fanatics for his progressive opinions & writings regarding science, secularism, humanism & war crime trials.
We, 'Bangladesh Liberation War Library & Research Centre' condemn this vicious act.
Attack on Avijit Roy is similar to attack on the main ideas of Liberation Movement of Bangladesh.
We demand arrest and trial of the perpetrators of this savage attack.
