Gunmen Strike Shia Mosque in Bangladesh

Gunmen Strike Shia Mosque in Bangladesh

Radicals have claimed attacking a Shia mosque in Bangladesh. One person was killed and three others wounded.
The attack was the latest in a wave of deadly assaults this year on foreigners, secular writers and Shias.
Radical groups have alarmed the international community and raised concerns that religious extremism is taking hold in a country largely seen as moderate with a Sunni majority, Deutsche Welle reported.
The Islamic State terrorists as well as a local affiliate have claimed the killings of two foreigners—an Italian aid worker and a Japanese agricultural worker—as well as for other attacks on the country’s minority Shia Muslim community.
However, the government of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has repeatedly said that IS has no organizational presence in the country.
It has accused domestic groups along with the main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party and its main ally, the Jamaat-e-Islami party, of carrying out the attacks to destabilize the South Asian nation for political gains.
