Bangladesh starlet apologises after 'atheist' comments

Religious persecution is a two-way street. Sometimes, people of one religion are persecuted by people of another. Sometimes, people with no religion at all are persecuted by people of religion.

What the f**k about that, eh?


Bangladesh starlet apologises after 'atheist' comments

Safa Kabir, an actress and model who has appeared in top Bangladeshi television dramas, told a private radio station this week she did not believe in the afterlife.

"I don't believe in life after death. Actually, I never believe in what I can't see," she said, in comments that some took as a rejection of Muslim beliefs in heaven and hell.

4. Hasn't stopped him before

It's almost as if he can't stop himself even when he knows he's turned himself into a living parody. Kinda sad really.
