Absolutely Ammar bhai. Even killing one person is wrong and it is our mistake. The existence of the problem is enough to be alarmed and not the magnitude.
I think I am not explaining myself well here. My point was, comparing to other so called Muslim countries, BD has a good record in combating jongibad and one of the main reason is our moderate religious behavior. Now there are some fringe attacks and Gov't and civic leaders should do more, like for example in Ramadan Gov't ordered Khateebs to talk against jongibad in Friday prayers. This was exemplary and was even mentioned in few ME newspapers where they praised the efforts.
