Similarly, if you want to root out a Hindu family from its ancestral home in Bangladesh, just accuse one of its members of insulting the Islamic Prophet Muhammad. You will soon find thousands of Muslims rushing to burn the Hindu family’s whole neighborhood down, without hesitation or evidence. Such behavior towards minorities -- Christians in Pakistan and Hindus in Bangladesh -- has become commonplace among fundamentalist Muslims in both countries, whose governments have surrendered to Islamists.

Although Titu Roy lives with his wife and two children 500 miles away
in Narayanganj, a few days later, after Friday prayers, around 20,000 Muslims from neighboring villages
descended upon Thakurpara to take "revenge." Ignoring police attempts
at dissuasion, the mob set fire to at least 30 Hindu homes, and looted
and vandalized others.
