Earlier this year, author Avijit Roy and his wife were attacked when returning home from a book fair in Dhaka, Bangladesh. While his wife survived, Roy did not. He was the first of four atheists brutally killed in the country so far this year.
His 44th birthday would have been this past weekend. In his honor, the folks at Mukto-Mona, the secular website he founded, put together a wonderful collection of articles by him and about him.
Do yourself a favor and check it out.
