Bangladesh: Teacher and imam tortured for trying to stop a child marriage

A madrassa teacher and a local mosque imam were “tied to trees and beaten up” for trying to prevent a child marriage in the Noakhali District of Hatia Upazila in the Division of Chittagong, Bangladesh.

As the title below indicates, they were “tortured for a good deed,” and that good deed was trying to protect a young girl from abuse. Child marriage is sanctioned in Islam. Noteworthy about the beating of the two men is that it illustrates the risk taken by Muslims who attempt to break away from normative Islam.

Three decades ago, Bangladesh was regarded as a largely secular nation. Now, the article “Is Bangladesh going the way of Pakistan?” details how it has become an Islamized nation rife with jihad violence and widespread intolerance against disbelievers, as well as an increasing prevalence abusive Islamic practices.

Less than two months ago, news emerged that the Pakistani spy agency, Inter Service Intelligence, was manipulating Bangladesh’s elections in order to help the jihadist Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) and Jamaat e Islami Bangladesh (JIB) form the next government.
