Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for the immediate and unconditional release of Limon Fakir, a Bangladeshi blogger who has been held without trial for more than a year and a half and whose latest request for release on bail was rejected by the Dhaka high court yesterday. IAB also brought a complaint against Asad Noor, another blogger who wrote about fundamentalist excesses. Noor fled to India and from there had intended to travel to Nepal but was arrested while in transit at Dhaka airport in December 2017. Section 57 of the ICT Act, which criminalize defamation and blasphemy online, is often used by Islamists to harass journalists and bloggers who defend religious tolerance, free-thinking and secularism. His posts prompted a member of Islami Andolan Bangladesh (IAB), a radical Islamist party, to file a complaint with a court in the southern city of Barguna on 9 January 2017, accusing Fakir of “defamatory language against the Prophet.” May 19, 2021 Find out more Journalists and bloggers who advocate religious tolerance, such as Limon Fakir (left), are hounded by fundamentalist Muslim groups like Islami Andolan Bangladesh, which wants him to be given the death sentence (photo: archives – AFP). “We demand Limon Fakir’s immediate release,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “His arrest, the torture to which he was subjected and his interminable detention are all the more unacceptable because he just tried to inform his fellow citizens about fundamentalism.

Aged 24 and suffering from several ailments, he is facing a possible 14-year jail sentence in a trial before the Dhaka Cyber Tribunal.
