Here are some comments that came in response to Sunday's The Daily Star news report headlined “Grief turns into strength”
Jamaat and Shibir have become desperate. They killed Rajib to create a chaos and frighten the peaceful uprising. The frontline organisers of this crucial protest should always move carefully in groups. Jamaat-Shibir will strike again to sustain their nefarious presence in the country. We must resist this heinous marauder to save the country from their unholy clutches.
Let all promise to work united to end communal politics in Bangladesh and elsewhere in the world. Joy Bangla!b
How can we even know why he was killed before any investigation? This dangerous practice of prejudging and political exploitation of a murder will fuel more fire of political intolerance and violence. We reject all political killings.
Deep sympathy to Rajib's family. But it will be great injustice to Rajib's soul if the real culprits are not arrested.
Apparently, it seems Jamaat was behind this gruesome murder. But, if any Jamaat activist did commit this murder, I wonder, didn't he imagine for a moment that such an act would rather be politically suicidal? Were not the Jamaat men aware that a dead body of a blogger at this stage of anti-Jamaat public sentiment would be a political reward to those who are against them? Let's see what the law enforcement agencies dig out.
Bangladesh uprising! Let this revolution bring the end of Jamaat, Shibir and similar band of criminal organisations. Let the upcoming March 26 give a new independence for the country.
Just hanging the war criminals will not resolve the core of the problem. To address real issue, you have to ban Islami Chhatra Shibir which is the breeding ground of Jamaat-e-Islami, the collaborator of Pakistan in 1971.
May Allah bring peace in Bangladesh and grant heaven for Rajib. This uprising will teach BNP and AL and others that real power belongs to people. The message for the politicians is: 'clean your hands and work honestly'.
Jamaat-Shibir is playing the same role as it played in 1971. So, it is time we banned them constitutionally.

Why didn't the PM ban Jamaat-e-Islami's politics 16 years ago when AL first came to power? Why does she want to stop their politics now? Just to get to power again? But now we, the ordinary people, know that Awami League and BNP are the same. None of them think about the people of Bangladesh.
It was only a week back that our prime minister raised concerns about the security of the Shahbagh protesters. She had feared that something bad might happen and it did happen. I fear that the war has just begun. I hope that this war on war crimes trial does not cost any more lives.
