Hundreds of people protested against the death threat received by Sanskrit professor from an Islamic group in Bangladesh. Assistant professor of Sanskrit Department of Chittagong College has mentioned he has received demise threats from an Islamist group. Sanskrit professor Kushal Baran Chakraborty has mentioned he obtained the messages in his Facebook mailbox from the account of "Syed Shahzad".
According to the report, the audio warned Chakraborty towards 'attempting to construct Ram Rajya in Bangladesh' and introduced a plan to show Bangladesh into 'one other Pakistan'. "I floated an organisation for Hindu students in 2010 to take up their issues. It has 1.5 lakh members…. The Wahhabi group couldn't take it," he mentioned. Earlier, the targets of Islamist teams have been primarily atheist bloggers similar to Asif Mohiuddin, science author Ananta Bijoy Das, and US citizen Avijit Roy.
Chakraborty complained at Hathazari Police Station on October 18 after getting a collection of audio messages that acknowledged '10,000 youths have been prepared for orders to kill individuals such as you in a bushfire.'
