It is also not new for Jamaat E Islami’s name to appear whenever one is discussing religious extremism in Bangladesh.

Today I convinced an initially pro-Shahbag but currently Shahbag indifferent friend to start writing for Shahbag. Like so many people in Bangladesh, she has been adversely affected by the political and religious propagandas and had decided to remain neutral about Shahbag despite having a strong desire to see the war-criminals punished.
