ISIS Kills Christian Man in Bangladesh, Says it is a 'Lesson to Others'

ISIS has claimed responsibility for stabbing a Christian man to death in Bangladesh.


Christian Today reports that the terrorist group said they killed 68-year-old Christian Hussein Ali as a “lesson to others.”


The militants reportedly approached Ali on a motorbike and stabbed him in the neck while he was taking his usual morning walk in the town of Kurigram. 


Ali once told a Redcliffe College staff member that "They don't know anything, they don't understand, forgive them." He prayed for God to "place me under Your control."


Bangladesh is a moderate Muslim nation which has seen a surge in Islamic violence targeted against Christians and other minorities.


In addition to ISIS, Bangladesh faces the threat of terrorist violence from domestic militant group Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen, which the government says was responsible for killing two foreigners and attacking minorities.


Security forces have stepped up their efforts to crackdown on the Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen militants. Five members of the terrorist group have been killed in shootouts with police since November.
