Even those people who post on media sites can be killed if the things that they post get offensive enough that people will be mad about the things a certain person is talking about or blurting out.
A vocal antagonist by the name of Avijit Roy had been blogging about writings in religion contradictory to their belief which then infuriated disciplinarians of the Islam religion. Avijit Roy is an atheist who is advocating secularism because it is his belief, but some people are not very pleased with the things that he posted online which is why on his way home, aggressors in Bangladeshi capital Dhaka attacked him and his wife (maybe unintentionally just because they were together). By far, investigation has been going on but there are no clear signs on who was behind the attack, the only thing they are sure about is that the police are doing their best to investigate and hopefully point out which Islamic group was responsible for the killing.
With Roy’s death, hundreds of men gathered in Dhaka mourning for him. Prior to the incident, Roy was said to be receiving threats regarding his writings already. When the interview (after the death) happened, the family was stating the same thing and that it was against his published articles regarding the promotion of secular views, of social issues and of different sciences. He wrote the articles in their language and it is entitled Mukto-mona, which means free mind.
He regarded atheism as something that is a rational explanation for the things that is not scientific or things that are irrational or phenomenon which cannot be explained. His blog page or website now carries the message that they are grieving but soon enough it will past as well and they will overcome it. It is practiced in their country that the people have free intellectual as well as religious speech whenever they want and whatever it is about but for this certain time some people were offended and so they murdered him.
