Why is this man on trial for his life?

He’s Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury, the editor of an English-language ShoaibBangladeshi newspaper called, strangely, The Weekly Blitz. The official charge is sedition (punishable by death by hanging, of course) for advocating dialogue with Jews and Israel. In other words, he’s an Interfaith Alliance type of guy!  Not good in a state that’s flirting with Islamism. Melanie Phillips describes his situation here, and several ways to help him can be found here.
