After reports suggested that all terrorists involved in the recent attack at Dhaka restaurant, in which 20 people were killed, were highly educated and belonged to rich families, Bangladeshi author Taslima Nasreen rubbished the arguments that poverty makes somebody a terrorist.
In a series of tweets, Taslima quoted Saleem Samad that Bangladesh has been a major contributor to global terror and said it's time people should stop saying Islam is a religion of peace.
'Bangladesh has been a major contributor to global terror. Bangladeshi men have joined terror outfits in 36 countries.' -- Saleem Samad
Taslima holds strong feminist and human rights views and has not been able to return to Bangladesh, her native country that she left in 1994. The author has received death threats from extremist groups linked to al-Qaeda.
