Tribute to publisher of slain writer-blogger Avijit Roy, Faisal Arefin Dipan

Faisal Arefin Dipan was the only son of well-known writer and professor of Dhaka University’s Bengali department Abul Kashem Fazlul Haque.

His 'Jagriti Prokashony' had published Avijit Roy's popular title ‘Biswaser Virus’ (Virus of Faith).

The book was a hit with rationalists and freethinkers, but it had upset the Islamist radicals, who are suspected to be involved in his murder.

Roy was murdered by machete-wielding killers on the Dhaka University campus in February this year during the Amar Ekushey Book Fair.
