Islam, TV, Channel, and News

Sonar Bangla is a Bangladeshi blog that I wrote (briefly) about here. And some sub-lingual commenter named HK left this comment:

Google Translate auto-detects the language as Filipino. But then it hardly translates the darn thing. I would hate to miss out on the meaning of life. Any thoughts? I can pick out the words Islam, TV, Channel, and News. It is not spam, that much I can tell. Does anyone speak Bangladeshi?

Sonar Bangla No More

A blog is a place to disseminate information, to share stories, and to hopefully squeeze a laugh out of a reader or two. But the Bangladeshi Sonar Bangla blog got Ahmed Rajib Haider killed. And fellow blogger Shakil Ahmed said a pro-Jamaat-e-Islami website had last week named Haider as a target. Blogging can be dangerous business. . .
