How is it false information? Oh, I see your point. I noticed all da diversity in that photo.

That secular description is just a meaningless feel-good measure. They're just as brutal and regressive as all the other countries, but they hide it behind false progressive values like Turkey and Indonesia.

Remember that Bangladesh committed mass murder, rape, and torture of its non-muslim population when it broke away from Pakistan, and still regularly has murderous riots against non-muslims whenever they feel like it. Barely over a year ago organized crowds robbed and burned Hindu temples and homes on a Hindu holiday under the flimsy pretense that someone made 'a Facebook post about Islam'. They may like pretending to be open and secular, but it is by no means true.
