Avijit Roy is, 43, a US citizen from a Bangladeshi origin and a founder of the blog Mukto-mona “free mind” in 2000 for a community of free-thinkers, secularists, atheists and humanists in Bangladesh. Roy supported freedom of speech, equality, science, reason, compassion and humanism and the break out from arbitrary athoritarianism, stifling superstition and religious orthodoxy.
“To say that I’m furious or heartbroken would be an understatement. But as fucked up as the world is, there’s never a reason to stop fighting to make it better,” Roy’s daughter Trisha Ahmed said. “What would help me the most right now is if everyone (even people I’ve never met) could share his story.”
