Faisal Arefin Deepan was found hacked to death in his office. He is the fourth secular writer murdered by Muslims in that nation this year.
Three others were wounded in the attack.
In February Avijit Roy, an American, was hacked to death on the Dhaka University campus while walking with his wife.
• By reporting the attacks were the work of "militant" Muslims, the media propagates the myth the most Muslims are moderates who don't condone such violence. Oddly, the media never refers to moderate Ku Klux Klansters but assumes all members of that organization were complicit in violent crimes committed by a tiny minority of its members.
There have been over 27,000 known Islamic terrorist attacks sin Sept. 11, 2001.

The body of Faisal Arefin Deepan of the Jagriti Prokashoni publishing house was found inside his office following the second of the attacks, a senior police officer, Shibly Noman, said.
Earlier in the day, Ahmed Rahim Tutul and two writers were shot and stabbed by three men in the office of the Shudhdhoswar publishing house. Police chief Jamal Uddin Meer said the assailants then locked the wounded men inside the office before escaping. “We had to break the lock to recover them,” he added.
