Bangladesh says 261 missing amid radicalisation fears

Source: Times of India

DHAKA: Doctors, engineers and university students are among 261 people officially missing in Bangladesh, with some feared recruited by Islamic militant groups, as the country reels from a wave of deadly attacks.

More than two weeks after Islamists killed 20 foreign hostages in a siege at a cafe in Dhaka, police published a list overnight Tuesday of those missing and urged information on their whereabouts.

"We have to find them," elite Rapid Action Battalion spokesman Mufti Mahmud Khan told AFP, without saying how many were suspected to have joined extremist groups at home and abroad.

Bangladesh was spurred into launching a nationwide hunt for people reported missing by their families in recent times, following the July 1 siege claimed by Islamic State group(IS).

1. All but one of the July 1 perps was an upper class kid with a bright future.

I think that shook them up tremendously. Hacked up journalists, secularists and atheists hadn't.

4. i believe the religion says that islam is the only true religion all others are false

from that premise, radicalization may be a logical response for those wanting to become more devout in their faith.
