I moved these posts to a separate thread. Please be judicious in what you post as we know that the terrorists are highly organized and are keeping watch. A media blackout is apparently in place.

Its time Bangladesh does something about these Imams that spew these hateful messages.

Also, if the infrastructure doesnt improve ... more and more of the under privilaged will join. They see this as place where their wanted, embraced.

Very sad to hear this news...just learnt that 1 police officer has been killed.

My thoughts and prayers are with those hostages and security forces...

Be safe fellow BC members in vicinity.

Hope this ends soon

Hope everyone makes it out safely.

This will also have serious ramifications on the Eng tour.

বিভিন্ন নিউজের কমেন্ট বক্স দেখলাম, অনেকেই(Majority) কমেন্ট করছে এটা 'নাটক,'..আবার লাইকও পাচ্ছে ভুরি ভুরি। বাংলাদেশিদের মেন্টালিটি কোথায় গিয়ে ঠেকেছে।

True that it is sad and scary.... but this is not at all unexpected...
This is what happens when you bow down to people like allama shafi....

And to all those who blame the US interference in the middle east for the war there... what have US or the West do here to deserve this?

So sad to see my country come to this. A recruiting hotbed for terrorists. But some of us were fearing this for the past few years. Extremism begets greater extremism.

Inna lillah for the two officers murdered by the terrorirsts.

Rumor's out that the number of death is way more than the 2 reported. I don't know how you would negotiate with these losers, they went in knowing they won't come out alive.

THis is really sad. End of safe Bangladesh from Terrorism. It is clearly a target to make it a potential unsafe country.

I have relatives who live right next door. I been there recently. Shaking me up these incidences.

Problem is BD not as well organized as some of the other western countries. No police officer would die in a situation like this in the west..

Shame to see what I've observed is generally one of the more stable, non theorcratic states in Asia be engulfed in crises like this. With the spate of deaths of secular bloggers lately it seems BD is being dragged downwards I'm afraid.

Obviously this pales in significance to the true cost of this attack (deaths of any innocents) but this may well put Englands tour in serious doubt.

BD has gotta cut out the source of these extremist lunatics, mosques madrassahs and so on spreading filth need to be shut down, and any supporters of ISIS and such groups punished.

With the timing right after Turkey, a new type where a place is attacked instead of person, and the area that is supposed to be very safe with ISIS taking credit for it - is getting a lot of media attention. And unfortunately that is a bad thing - the massive international media attention it's getting. THese groups thrives in that. And that is what is scary...

It is still a "hostage" situation for now which is not your typical terrorist attack but regardless this does not bode well for the country.

England tour will only go through if players agree to be restrictive - pretty much stay under constant observation and be locked down to one's hotel. And that's pretty hard to do for one whole month. England pulling out will still be rash but now has some legitimacy on surface compare to Australian decision...

The images of RAB that's been running in CNN is disgusting/laughable. Running away after hearing a gunshot, limping, putting hand on chest as if in pain...

I don't think Bangladeshi secuirty is trained well enough to tackle coordinated attack. All Rab is good for is killing indiscriminately like the criminal organization that it is....

if bystanders/injured ppl are just simply slapped a RAB vest on they should stop doing that. The one time it's your call - looking like wuss.

I thought you are a pro-Bangladeshi Tonnoy! Don't be so hopeless.

The world is not a safe place anymore - be it Paris, Orlando or Gulshan.

To make the world a better place, politicians have to re-think their visions/strategies, overcome inequalities, unfair distributions of wealth, ensure equal opportunities for the mass and so on - this is all due to corrupt politicians - you can NOT leave a mass group of people behind and hope for progress?

Eliminate poverty, promote education, ensure a fair and progressive judiciary system etc are the key to avoid this kind of act/s.

I hope Govt will take a strong stand against any kind of terror activities to ensure public safety. My prayers are with the victims and who lost their lives due to this heinous crime.
