The stabbers are targeting Atheist bloggers, scientists, and freethinkers. They have created a list and started killing one by one. It is the government duty to protect the citizen specially those who are threatened by terrorist. All the time a blogger or citizen dies, government tries to do investigation then suddenly stops everything. It will be out of control and serious occurrences will be happened if government ignores Islamic terrorists.
