PLEASURE IS ALL MINE

An overland Bermuda Triangle

LATIF'S calculated heresy, British citizen Samiun Rahman's detention as a suspect recruiter for IS in Dhaka, the Islamic state phenomenon and the loosely-knit 54-country coalition going aerial against the IS as the latter holds the ground even on the run are a mixture of opposites in the world of absurdities.
