A teacher at a college in southern Bangladesh was arrested and could be jailed for up to three years. What was his crime? He may have approved the inclusion of a banned book in the school's library.

That a school faculty member - or anybody, really - could be arrested and possibly imprisoned over a book is just incredible to me. Perhaps the worldwide attention that this particular case is getting will cause the authorities in southern Bangladesh to reconsider their actions.
