Controversy still surrounds the events of June 14th, the Muslim festival of Shab-e-Baraat. On this night of revelry and prayer, 10 members of the Bihari refugee community were killed in the Mirpur area, Dhaka.

This blog post will briefly detail who the Biharis are, the two versions of the murders, and the implications for Bangladesh.
