Bangladesh on Friday (May 26) removed a controversial statue which religious radicals claim represents an “un-Islamic” Greek goddess from outside the country’s highest court.

Work to take down the statue, which is less than six months old, in front of the Supreme Court in Dhaka was supervised by its sculptor Mrinal Haque.

“This is a slap in the face of progressive people in this country,” Haque said, as dozens of young secular activists staged a protest as the statue was removed amid heavy security.
