Taslima Is Banned From Entering India Till May 31

The most controversial Bangladeshi author Taslima Nasreen has been banned from entering India untill May 31. The reason is very simple.The Indian Government did not want any trouble ahead of Lok Sabha polls, according to her website.


One of the pre-conditions set by India for giving resident permit is that "she must not enter India before 31st of May (by this time the general elections in India will be over)," said the website of the 46-year-old writer against whom fundamentalists have issued 'fatwas' for writing a book 'Lajja'.


Nasreen had been living in Kolkata since 2000 after he had forced to flee her country. She left India in March last year after fundamentalists in West Bengal staged protests and indulged in violence. The Bangladeshi author came back on August 8 in 2008 but she was not allowed to live in Kolkata. She stayed in Delhi for about two months then left the country on October 15 at the advice of Indian government. Agitated at being asked to leave India, Nasreen had questioned this country's secular credentials.


"They (India) could not give shelter to a person whose entire life has been spent in the cause of secular humanism, a person without land or home, who regarded India as her land and Kolkata as her home...," Taslima said this earlier when she left Kolkata.


According to the website, Nasreen is now living in the US although she did not reply anything about the issue.
