Terror attack in Bangladesh continues. Departed from India in 1947 as a state of Pakistan – clinched the independence in 1971 after a 9-month of blood-shaded war against the Pakistan Army, the rise of Bangladesh politics during this time was extraordinary. From several Military Coups to the hidden terrorism inside, all occurrences had been tearing apart Bangladesh from the inside. But, Bangladesh rises again and again from that hard path as a supporter of democracy and universal religious concept. Not just the democracy, but the economic growth too is extraordinary now a day.
During this hard time, terrorists have been targeting Bangladesh for the last 2 years periodically just to break us apart once again.

1st July 2016: Since 1st July 2016, the target has been the innocent civilians or the bloggers. Now the target is set for the foreigners too. This attack was totally different from the others. This was the biggest terrorist attack of all time occurred in Bangladesh. Gulshan area is famous for embassy offices. Foreigners and diplomats used to get to the Spanish Café Holey Artisan Bakery located at Gulshan-2. Six terrorists stormed there on Friday late night and brutally killed 22 people, most of them were foreigners. Bangladesh Army started their Operation Thunderbolt in the following morning and recovered 13 injured. All of the terrorists were killed in that operation instantly within not more than 15 minutes.
What is their motive? Is it to get us blacklisted to the rest of the world that our security isn’t tight enough for the foreign diplomats? If it is, our Government has to confront a greater challenge most probably second after 1971.
