Judge Mamunur Rashid of the Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal sentenced 16 people to death for their involvement in the murder of 18-year-old Nusrat Jahan Rafi. A student of an Islamic school, Miss Rafi had lodged a complaint of sexual harassment against the school’s principal. She was confronted by a group of five people and told she must withdraw the complaint. When she refused, they set her on fire and she died four days later in hospital.

Pray for those who have been convicted over this murder to come in fear and trembling before God.
May Jesus meet them at this time in their lives (The Bible, Psalm 145:18-20).
