Bangladesh has a long history of fringe extremist groups. Some of those are a legacy of the war in Afghanistan, in which some Bangladeshis fought; others are byproducts of the Wahhabi influence that Bangladeshi workers in the Persian Gulf brought back when they returned home; still others are ISIS-addicted. The Islamic State is recruiting supporters among that part of the population dissatisfied with the government's handling, and perhaps the attackers in Dhaka were some of them. Whatever its exact nature, however, according to the analysts it seems that terrorism is largely the result of the government’s repression against mainstream dissent

Male rape is not worth less than female rape, and should not be silenced, nor as a tangible phenomenon nor as possible evidence. Sexual violence against men in conflict situations is an ordinary phenomenon: male rape can be seen as an instrument of war to destroy men who should be the guardians of society, and to erode the sanctity attached to their masculinity
