|Murdered Atheist Ahmed Rajib Haider|
Two students have been sentenced to death in Bangladesh for the killing of an atheist blogger there in 2013.
Six others were convicted of involvement in the murder of Ahmed Rajib Haider, who was hacked to death as he was returning home from a rally in the capital, Dhaka.
A five-year sentence was given to the head of Ansarullah Bangla, the group suspected of carrying out the attack.
Five more secular bloggers and writers were killed in Bangladesh in 2015.
As hard as it is to be an outspoken Atheist in America, it is NOTHING compared to the dangers of speaking out about religion in countries where the faithful believe such apostasy is justifiably punishable by death.
