Bangladesh has shown a way to Asian countries in dealing with the scourge of terrorism. Feared to be emerging as the haven for terrorists in Asia, the deterrent punishment to two terrorists is likely to hurt terrorists. A court sentenced seven Islamist terrorists to death by hanging for killing two judges in a bomb attack in Jhalakati town in November, reports The New York Times. The seven included Siddiqul Islam, who uses the nom de guerre Bangla Bhai and is the chief of the outlawed group Jagrata Muslim Janata Bangladesh, and Shaikh Abdur Rahman, the leader of Jamaat-ul-Mujahedeen, another banned Islamist terrorist group. Both groups demand Islamic rule in Bangladesh, and killed at least 30 people and wounded 150 in a spate of countrywide bomb attacks between August and December 2005.
