BDNEWS24.COM twists logic to name and shame

Creating the atmosphere,
It starts with an explosive headline, “HC Juge runs anti-Rajib campaign“. Bdnews24.com says that a High Court judge on Monday distributed copies of a report among his colleagues that termed slain blogger Ahmed Rajib Haider ‘Murtad’ (apostate). It mentions that Rajib, a leading activist of the Shahbagh movement, was killed by unidentified miscreants in the city’s Pallabi last Friday.
Omitting some facts,
Tazakhobor.com, in a report entitled, “Was blogger Rajib killed for his blog and comments? says that,” On the other hand a good number of bloggers claiming this murder is not because of his activies of Shahbagh movement. Rather this might be a outcome of his previous personal online anti-Islamic activities like objectional comments and ill motivated jokes against Islam . One of his  personal blog hosted in wordpress is revealed which shows all sorts of hate speech against Islam and general muslims. Some of the online Jamaat-Shibir activists had branded the slain blogger Ahmed Rajib Haider as an atheist who they said should have been resisted.”
The extra care in neutral professionalism,
Words from the report suffice,
On behalf of Justice Mizanur Rahman Bhuiyan, his assistant Siddiqur Rahman Hawlader distributed the report in the Supreme Court envelope in the offices of the judges. In the report, the judge said: “His (Rajib) blog posts remind us of Murtad Salman Rushdie.” Several sources confirmed bdnews24.com that the judges of the High Court held several meetings on the issue and also saw the Chief Justice in the afternoon. The Chief Justice summoned the judge and warned him. Supreme Court Registrar AKM Shamsul Islam told bdnews24.com that he was also aware of the incident. He said that some newspapers spread propaganda against blogger Rajib Haider and some of the copies were distributed saying that the news was genuine and that the incident had sparked a lot of discussion.
Going for the kill,
The report continues, “Bhuiyan took oath as an Additional Judge on July 29, 2002 during the last BNP-Jamaat alliance government. His job was regularised on July 29, 2004.
In other words, the judge got his posting during the tenure of the BNP-Jamaat Alliance govt. He is a supporter of that alliance. bdnews24 uses a clear instance of twisted logic that since he is using “Islam” to brand Rajib as an “atheist” (which bdnews24 clearly abhors), he must be a Jamaat sympathiser. Sarcastically speaking, who else would speak out against the first martyr of the second revolution?
Strange are the times we live in…….
