Things are real serious with me in this country.

As you know, I am a person either still in prison or already killed by the Islamist government in Bangladesh.

As you know, my office was for the fourth time attacked on February 22, 2009 by a group of armed thugs belonging to the ruling party. It may be mentioned here that a person named Shamim claiming to be an officer of DGFI [Directorate General of Intelligence Forces] also co-led the entire gang of thugs and abused me with words, “Agent of Jews”, “Agent of Israel” etc. He kicked me at my lower abdomen and punched on my chest.

The gang looted my laptop, where I was having two complete manuscripts of my books titled, ‘Inside Madrassa’ and ‘Reportage’. ‘Inside Madrassa’ is a book describing the breeding of Jihadists inside the Madrassas, as well as many of the unknown and untold facts of Islamist militancy. Moreover, they smashed an autographed portrait which was on display in my room.

Right after the incident, a case was lodged with the Paltan Police Station. Case No. 65, dated 22/2/2009. But, the law enforcing agencies did not take any action. The Investigation Officer told me that the attackers were influential figures in the ruling party and they are instructed to not proceed with any action on this matter.

I sent written information to the Director General, DGFI, Intelligence Forces, informing them about their man coming to my office with the attackers. I was told that, there was no such officer sent from DGFI to my office. But the silence of DGFI in at least identifying the person, gives me room to think that there must have been some hidden mystery behind the entire episode, which I believe, you will understand.

The attackers are continuing to give life threats on me, and as you know, the interim government withdrew police protection from my residence. Moreover, the degree of lawlessness and state patronized terror on me is making me feel that I am living in a society with extreme adversity under state patronized terrorism and notoriety.
