SUCCESS STORY 113: The last Facebook post by murdered Bengali blogger Nazimuddin Samad has been translated from Bengali to English by Riasat Ahsan and appears in an article published on The News Hub in partnership with Movements. Samad was a 28-year-old secular blogger and a law student at Jagannath University in Bangladesh. In 2013, Samad's name was on a "hit-list" of atheist bloggers and free thinkers that was reportedly sent to Bangladesh's interior ministry. On April 6, 2016 Samad was attacked with machetes and then fatally shot by three unidentified assailants near his home.
