All India Secular Forum condemns the killing of blogger Niloy Neel Chowdhury in Bangladesh

All India Secular Forum strongly condemns hacking 40 years old blogger Niloy Neel Chowdhury to death in Dhaka on 7th August 2015. The Government of Bangladesh should take a serious view of such brutal killings in cowardly manner and arrest all the culprits and bring them to justice. Muzzling an opinion would not silence it. Besides healthy disagreements and dialogues are sine qua non of a progressive, democratic and learning society. We appeal to all to demonstrate unity on the issue of fundamental right to free expression.
