Rajshahi University professor AFM Rezaul Karim Siddiquee, 58, was murdered within 50 metres of his residence in the country’s northwestern city of Rajshahi, Bangladesh.
The professor was connected with cultural activities and it seems that the Islamist fundamentalists have murdered him. No groups claimed responsibility for the attack so far and police are investigating.
Angry students and teachers of the university rallied in the campus demanding immediate arrest of culprits.
Two years ago, another Rajshahi University teacher AKM Shafiul Islam was similarly murdered. Two more professors of the Rajshahi University had been killed earlier.
We strongly protest these attacks and murders!
