I'll let this speak for itself:

Over 300 coordinated explosions through 63 of a country's 64 districts within an hour, an estimated 100 injuries, a miraculously low two casualties. It's the kind of story that would have drowned out all other noise in the media short of another 9/11 had it happened in the US. Or to a more "important" nation, however you choose to define that word. But it happened in Bangladesh. So the only people paying attention are analysts who realize that the poor and densely populated Muslim-majority country may be going from secular to Islamist without the resources to fight the terrorism virus.
