Assault on Taslima Nasreen
<b>Taslima's visa extended for 6 months</b><!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->The visa of controversial Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen, who was attacked by activists of Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen in Hyderabad earlier this month, has been extended for six months from Saturday.

A decision to extend her visa for stay in India till February 17, 2008, has been taken by the government, a senior Home Ministry official said.

Though the exiled author had applied for a permanent resident permit, the Centre preferred to extend it for six months.

The Bangladeshi author has been living in exile for 12 years and her Bangladeshi passport stands invalid.

She holds a European Union passport issued by the Swedish government.

Though she was "shocked" by the attack on her by the Muslim group, Nasreen has said she has no intention of leaving India, which she described as her "second home" and "a good place to live in."<!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->
The issue of the Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen has also triggered a holier than thou race with each trying to surpass the other in targeting, condemning and threatening the writer. Ironically, while the Left parties condemned the attack on Taslima, <span style='color:red'>the two Urdu newspapers have condemned the MIM for its attack being half-hearted. </span>
Now there are riots in Kolkotta on Tasleem issue? What did she say or do now? Or it just a strawmen to divert attention from the ration riots of Kolkotta from last month and the state sponsored progroms in Nandigram?
<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin--><b>Police offers Taslima Nasreen to move out of Bengal</b>
West Bengal police on Wednesday made an offer to controversial Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen to move her out of the state following outbreak of large-scale violence in Kolkata during a shutdown called by a Muslim outfit demanding that her visa will be cancelled.

Union Home Ministry sources told PTI that the police has suggested to Nasreen that she could be moved out to Gujarat but the author is believed to have turned down the offer.

The visa of the Bangladeshi writer has been extended by the Government till February 17 next year.
Now even commies believes Gujarat is safest place for Muslim woman. Kya baath hai !!!

Pioneer News Service | New Delhi
<b>A day after large-scale violence broke out in several parts of Kolkata, controversial Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen was on Thursday shifted from West Bengal to Rajasthan.</b>

PTI quoted official sources as saying that the writer reached Jaipur on Thursday afternoon and was discreetly taken to a safe place. According to reports, the West Bengal Police had also suggested to Nasreen on Wednesday that she could be moved out to Rajasthan. The Centre has extended Nasreen's visa till February 17.

The BJP has attacked the ruling Left Front in West Bengal for making Nasreen leave Kolkata. The party had demanded that Nasreen be granted permanent visa and asylum in the country on the lines of Buddhist spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama.

Describing as 'improper' the statement made by Left Front chairman Biman Bose, BJP Deputy Leader in the Lok Sabha VK Malhotra asked intellectuals, who always supported literature that hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus in the 'name' of freedom of expression, to speak up and oppose the decision to move out Nasreen.

However, drawing flak for his controversial comment that Nasreen should leave Kolkata if her stay disturbs peace there, Biman Bose on Thursday backtracked on his statement.

Going defensive, Bose said,<b> "The State does not have the authority to grant or cancel visa and only the Centre can do this and let the Union Government take an appropriate decision on the issue."</b>

West Bengal Assembly Speaker HA Halim took the view that "If her (Taslima) presence here is causing problems, the State Government should write to the Centre."
Indian commies are worst than Hutu's of Rwanda. And Moron and Queen led government are leaders of these worst humans and Babus are supporting them in crime.

Lets start sending letters to Amenesty international, Human Rights, and UN regarding atrocities by Commies, PM of India and government machinery.
<b>Controversial writer Taslima Nasreen moved to Delhi </b><!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->New Delhi, Nov 23: Controversial Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen was shifted to Jaipur on Thursday from West Bengal because of security concerns. After an overnight stay in Jaipur, Taslima has been further sifted to on Friday morning Delhi by road. She was escorted to Delhi by the Rajasthan Police.

She was accompanied by a person identified as Faisal.

Shaken by violence unleashed by Muslim hardliners, demanding that Talisma Nasreen be moved out of West Bengal, the Left Front government on Thursday had nudged the controversial Bangladeshi writer to leave the state for Jaipur.

<b>In Jaipur, Nasreen was staying at a downtown hotel, Shikha, close to the CM’s residence, where 30 police personnel were guarding her, .</b>

Her departure to Delhi at 6: 30 am came amid threats by a Muslim organisation, the All India Milli Council, to hold demonstrations in the city if the writer was kept in the state for long.

She was shifted out of West Bengal, a day after large-scale violence broke out in Kolkata over demands that her visa be cancelled.

Taslima Nasreen has been living in exile after a fatwa was issued against her in Bangladesh. She had earned the wrath of the conservative muslims by her writing and fled her homeland in 1994 after radical muslims demanded her execution. Her visa has been extended to February 17.

She was also attacked up by activists of Majlis Ittehadul Muslimeen(MIM) at a book release function on August 9 in Hyderabad, earlier this year. <!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->West Bengal throws secularism into the trash can and hurriedly packs off Taslima to Rajasthan.

Muslims of the wounded psyche, pent up resentment, justified anger, misguided youth, threaten Vasundhara Raje that there will be hell to pay and she throws political will into the trash can and parcels Taslima off to Delhi.

This is very very alike passing the parcel to the sound of music. This is passing Taslima to the sound of Muslim threats.

<b>Where is Teesta Setalvad, Shabnam Hashmi, Shabana Azmi, Nirmala Deshpande, Aaamir Khan, and all our didi s and dada s?</b>

Like Gudiya and then Imrana and now Taslima these foreign funded didis and dadas want to live another day to abuse Hindus. That is cake walk. Taking on the Mullahs and mad Muslims, well, cowardly silence is the better part of anti-Hindu activism. 

I cant say I am not delighted. The activist cowardly slip is showing and showing in the most uncouth way. RR <!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->
<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->On Wednesday, Kolkata saw a demonstration against Taslima Nasreen's stay in the State by 10,000 people from the minority community that could well have degenerated into a communal riot with the slightest provocation. The mob went on the rampage torching vehicles, damaging public property and fighting pitched battles with the police -- for 8 hours -- till the Army was called in.

Though sources refused to name the leaders of this violence, other comrades said that  "they belonged to the Urdu-speaking lobby" indicating party MP Md Salim and Assembly Speaker HA Halim as also former Minister Md Amin, who played an important role in securing the Bangla writer's ouster.

Surprisingly,the Bengali lobby represented by the likes of Abdur Rezzak Mollah did not advocate Nasreen's ouster, insiders said.

The logic behind Urdu-Bengali divide in the Muslim Marxist leadership is also reinforced by the fact that Wednesday's upheaval was largely concentrated in the Urdu-speaking areas of Park Circus, Ripon Street, Beniapukur and not Khidderpore-Akra-Metiabruz belt inhabited by the Bengali Muslims
<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin--><b>Don't misuse political asylum: UNPA tells Taslima</b>
Syed Amin Jafri in Hyderabad
November 24, 2007 18:06 IST

The United National Progressive Alliance on Saturday came out strongly against controversial Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen, <b>telling her not to misuse her political asylum in India to hurt the sentiments of a particular community or to cause communal tension in the country. The UNPA also asked the author to apologise for her controversial writings. </b>

At a media briefing after the conclave of UNPA leaders <b>hosted by the Telugu Desam Party in Vijayawada</b>, National Conference leader and former Jammu & Kashmir chief minister Dr Farooq Abdullah articulated the views of the UNPA about the burgeoning controversy.

"Salman Rushdie wrote Satanic Verses and the reaction in the world was so severe that he continues to live in hiding today. We have a similar problem in India. We have a Bangladeshi national Taslima Nasreen. She also writes and reviles Islam and the Prophet of Islam. This is not acceptable to Muslims, not only in India but across the world," he said.

"Nobody has a right to criticise religion. I am a Muslim but I have no right to criticize Hindus or Hindu Gods or Sikhs or Christians.  In the Holy Quran, there is a verse which says you respect your religion and you respect other religions also. Now, when she has done this (blasphemous writing), she has been turned out of her country. India has given her asylum. If she wants to stay in peace and if she wants India to be in peace, she must not continue with that sort of dialogue," Dr Abdullah added.

"She must say that she is sorry for what she has done. Unless she does that, she is not only going to pay the price but every one of us will have to pay it. This committee feels that she must not violate the asylum granted to her," the NC leader said.

Asked if the UNPA wanted Taslima Nasreen to be deported, he quipped, "The decision about her staying or leaving has to be made by the government."

When newsmen pointed out that he was endorsing the stand taken by Islamic fundamentalists, he shot back: "I am not a Maulvi, but I am a Musalman. That is why I say this. I don't want hatred to be created because there are forces that emerge to take advantage of it."

UNPA convenor and Telugu Desam Party chief N Chandrababu Naidu intervened to say "It is a sensitive issue. All of us have to live peacefully. That's why we are saying that this type of writings are not good for the nation and not good for world peace also."


UNPA's secularism on the forefront.

No talk about M Karunanidhi's continuous insult of Sri Ram.
No talk about MF Hussain's paintings.
No talk about MS Art University Baroda's Chandramohan (?) insulting Hindu (and Christian) icons.

Same Naidu fellow was on the forefront asking Modi to resign in 2002. The dispicable guy had enacted high drama then. He keeps shameful mum about Marxist violence. Keeps silent on attack on Hindus.

These parties must be banned, and fools sent to Pakistan where they can live in peace that is Islam.
Having briefly watched Big Fight on NDTV, here is an update. Farukh Abdullah ibn Sheikh Abullah finds MF Hussein to be an exemplary painter hounded by fundamentalists.

But Taslima Nasreen must apologize, give up writing, (marry a faithful - added) and live a quiet life in the old city of hyderabad or in kidderpur kolkata. maybe allah the merciful and his rasool will pardon her afterall.

and a good article in pioneer:

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->For freedom, stand by Taslima Nasreen
Kanchan Gupta

Those acquainted with contemporary Bengali literature would agree that dissident Bangladeshi author Taslima Nasreen is not a talented writer. But there are few who would disagree that she is an extremely courageous woman who has struck out at Islamic fanatics and mullahs whose sole passion in life is to come up with the most perverse interpretations of the Quran so that they can live out their dark fantasies born of obscurantism and twisted notions of patriarchy. Ms Nasreen gave up her profession as a qualified physician to take on radical Islamists who had begun to gather strength under the tutelage of Bangladesh Nationalist Party, led by Dhaka cantonment queen Begum Khaleda Zia, as well as Awami League, headed by a fork-tongued Sheikh Hasina Wajed. Her newspaper columns were hugely popular, especially among Bangladeshi women, although the Jamaat-e-Islami was none too pleased that someone should dare question the mullahs' diktats.

Ms Nasreen became a celebrity of sorts in Kolkata after the publication of Nirbachito Column, a collection of her newspaper columns, which won her a prestigious literary award. Back in Dhaka, her success raised the hackles of those discomfited by the fact that rather than disappear behind a burqa and meekly accept the oppressive ways of the clergy, a Bangladeshi woman had begun to inspire others to emulate her defiance. They began to sharpen their knives for the kill; in the meanwhile, they turned on Bangladesh's minuscule and disinherited, disempowered Hindu community, committing horrendous atrocities. After the demolition of the disputed Babri structure in Ayodhya on December 6, 1992, they let loose a reign of terror, killing Hindu men, raping Hindu women and destroying Hindu temples. Lest all this be denied by Islamic fanatics on both sides of Padma -- including those who fly the banners of Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen, All-India Milli Council and assorted organisations like All-India Minority Forum that make up the Brotherhood in Green -- and their 'secular' patrons, the most casual scan of newspapers of those days will reveal the extent of the crimes committed against Hindus in Bangladesh in the guise of protesting the demolition of the disputed Babri structure.

It is a tribute to Ms Nasreen's courage that rather than silently watch the persecution of Bangladeshi Hindus, she recorded those crimes in a slim volume, Lajja. Within days of the publication of the novel -- it was 'fiction' based on incontrovertible facts -- it was slammed by the Government of Bangladesh, which had clearly colluded with the fanatics by allowing them a free run, and the mullahs who, typically, were outraged that a Muslim (although Ms Nasreen says she is a 'humanist') should have dared put their misdeeds on record. The book was banned and a mullah issued a fatwa, calling for her execution as she had committed 'blasphemy'! During Friday prayers in mosques across Bangladesh, believers were urged to murder Ms Nasreen if the Government failed to carry out the death sentence. Another mullah offered a reward of $2,000, which was really more a reflection of his cash flow problems than his desire to see her head brought to him on an aluminium platter borrowed from his kitchen.

But all this did not dampen the demand for Lajja. Pirated copies of the book sold in thousands even as fanatics took to the streets, clamouring that Ms Nasreen be executed to uphold shari'ah. Overnight, Ms Nasreen became a household name, here and abroad. In those days The Pioneer had a fiesty correspondent in Dhaka. I recall asking him for a copy of the book. He got hold of a pirated copy and sent it to us by courier. Since everybody was curious about what Ms Nasreen had written that had so angered the mullahs, The Pioneer published the relevant extracts. Later, the book was published in both Bengali and English in India; thankfully, the Government did not ban Lajja. That was the beginning of Ms Nasreen's woes. Hounded by Islamists baying for her blood (in the hope of pocketing the promised $2,000), she fled her beloved country in 1995 and sought shelter in Sweden. Two decades earlier, another Bangladeshi writer, Daud Haider, had to similarly flee Bangladesh after fanatics declared him a heretic. We shall return to Daud's story later.

Feted by Kolkata's intellectuals, Ms Nasreen decided to shift to West Bengal and was granted a one-year visa in September 2005. But before that, she had run into trouble with Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee who, despite his pretensions of being a writer and a Marxist, gave in without a fight and banned her autobiographical book, Dwikhondito, in November 2003 because it had references to the perversion of Islam by those who use religion to perpetuate their twisted notions of a Muslim woman's place in society. Another book, Aamar Meyebela, also ran into trouble and was promptly banned in Bangladesh. The publishers of Dwikhondito went to court and appealed against the ban. The Calcutta High Court declared the ban was "untenable" and "unjustifiable" in September 2005. Dwikhondito reappeared in bookshops and became an instant bestseller, not least because it rips off many a 'secular' and 'progressive' mask.

On August 10 this year, when Ms Nasreen visited Hyderabad for the launch of her translated works, she was set upon by leaders of Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen who insisted that she should be handed over to them so that they could punish her for her 'sins'. She escaped the lynching but the incident showed that fanatics had put in motion a plan to hound her out of India. Last Wednesday's riots in central Kolkata when murderous mobs owing allegiance to All-India Minority Forum, headed by Mr Idris Ali, a Congress leader, demanded that she be thrown out of the country, are part of this devious plan whose ultimate goal is to demonstrate the might of radical Islamism in 'secular' India. Mr Biman Bose, chairman of the Left Front and a member of the CPI(M) Polit Bureau who loves to be portrayed in media as a remorseless, cold-blooded commissar, wilted in the face of Muslim fury and ensured Ms Nasreen's eviction from Kolkata and West Bengal. Since then, she has been on the run, first seeking shelter in Jaipur and then in Rajasthan House in Delhi.

It is anybody's guess as to whether the UPA Government will be able to summon the courage to stand up to fanatics and insist that Ms Nasreen shall remain in India. On another occasion, Mrs Indira Gandhi had succumbed to Muslim pressure and was on the verge of deporting Daud Haider to face death in Bangladesh when the dissident poet was rescued by German Nobel laureate Gunter Grass. If Ms Nasreen is forced to leave India, make no mistake that a time will come when anybody who doesn't subscribe to the twisted worldview of Islamic fanatics will be similarly hounded in this wondrous secular democracy of ours. 
Congress to drag it's feet on Taslima visa issue
<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Singhvi said when the Centre was examining the request to extend Taslima's visa, the West Bengal government had raised some "legitimate objections" that the Union government later over-ruled and granted her permission to stay on.

He said there are set rules for granting such visas and cited the example of Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama. <span style='font-size:8pt;line-height:100%'>(why no example of Soniaji - don't these congies chant her name between their breaths?)</span>

"Such people have to observe certain conditionalities, such as they cannot participate in political activities and should not
cause strains in our relations with any country," Singhvi said.
I wonder what yardstick was used by Congress to decide on Sonia Gandhi's citizenship in India? Everything that can be said about Taslima can be said about others who have taken refuge in our country.

In early 90s there were complaints of over lakh Bangladeshi entering India every month. This became and issue in Parliament and Roa govt started deporting them. After about 130 Bangladeshis were deported and the secularists created a havoc which led the Rao govt to stop that program.
Where are these secularists these days?

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Farukh Abdullah ibn Sheikh Abullah finds MF Hussein to be an exemplary painter hounded by fundamentalists.
Hounded is a harsh word as the matter is in the court and the MF (apt initials) Hussien has bolted to UK since. And he's even transfered the assets to his son.
If Hussien returns to India, he'll have his day in court and could be even awarded a few national awards by this Govt.

And does this Farukh Abdullah ibn Sheikh Abullah has any words to describe the people who made M F Hussein remove from his movie "Meenaxi: A Tale of Three Cities" the Qawwali song ‘Noor-un-Ala-Noor’ as they considered it blasphemous? Who were these people?

We have seen videos of how elected/educated jihadis attacked this unarmed women in Hyderbad, if anything happens to her in Bangladesh after a forced deportation, Congress will have accept responsibility. But having seen the track record of these pusslinamous politicians on issues pertaining to Muslim women (be it Imraana, Shah Bano, Akhera Bibi etc..) they could care less.

Pioneer News Service | New Delhi
Yechury washes hands of: She moved to Jaipur on her own
<b>Bangladeshi author replies: I was forced to leave Kolkata </b>
Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen on Monday reiterated that she wished to return to Kolkata, putting the secular professions of the Left Front ruling West Bengal to an acid test.

<b>"Bangladesh has closed its doors on me. Now if West Bengal also closes its doors I will be nowhere. I will die without Kolkata. I am a Bengali after all," </b>Nasreen reportedly told Bengali news channel Choubish Ghanta over phone from New Delhi.

"Why should I take a decision on my own? I was forced to leave Kolkata. It did come to my mind that someone would come and kill me. Many like my writings, many others don't," she told the channel.

The lament from the controversial writer, who is now living under heavy police protection in New Delhi after being shunted out from Kolkata, caught the CPI(M) that leads the Left Front ducking for answers.

A day after West Bengal Chief Minister's flip-flop over whether his Government was willing to take Taslima back, CPI(M) Politburo member Sitaram Yechury on Monday said the State Government had no role to play in deciding her stay in the country.

"Whether she should remain in India or not and whether her visa should be extended or not is a decision to be taken by the Central Government. It is beyond the scope of any State Government. Let the Central Government decide on this," he said.

Yechury declined to comment on Rajasthan Government's statement that Kolkata police refused to allow her back on technical ground, saying, "The West Bengal Government will answer this question."

He was equally unwilling to speak out his party's view on granting asylum to the writer as demanded by human rights groups.

"There are established rules and laws. The Central Government decides on this on the basis of information it has," was his laconic answer to all such questions.

As the Left parties squirmed, the main Opposition party BJP went ballistic, demanding that the UPA Government grant her the status of a "political refugee".

"It is a shame for the entire nation that Taslima Nasreen is made to run for her life," party's deputy leader in the Lok Sabha VK Malhotra said.

While taking pot shots at the "pseudo-secular Communists", he also sought to put Congress president Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in the dock for their "sinister silence" on the issue.

"She should be allowed to stay wherever she wants," Malhotra said. <!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->

NDTV Correspondent
Friday, November 30, 2007 (New Delhi)

Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen has withdrawn controversial lines in her autobiographical book Dwikhandita.

The move comes just two days after the Centre said it would continue to shelter the exiled author but she had to refrain from hurting religious sentiments.

Speaking to NDTV from the undisclosed safe house where she has been kept under the Centre's care, the author said ''I am withdrawing the controversial lines from my book Dikhandito. The book was written in 2002 based on my memories of Bangladesh in the 1980s during which time secularism was removed from the Bangladesh constitution.''

''Because I value secularism I wanted secularism to remain in the Bangladesh constitution. I didn't write the book to hurt anybody's sentiments. Some people claim that sentiments have been hurt. It was not intended. I hope there will be no controversy anymore and I will be able to live peacefully in India,'' she said.

Senior left leader Gurudas Dasgupta said that Taslima had taken the correct step, which will help facilitate her return to Kolkata.

Jamiat-e-Ulema-e- hind chief has appealed for an end to the protests against Taslima.

What exactly did she say in her autobiography about life in Bangla Desh which Indian Muslims are objecting to in Kolkata supported by CPM? If she said something about her old native country why are these folks up in armsin India? Is it another ummah cause?

I know the controversey in Old City Hyderabad. What is this new one in Kolkata?

And why does she want to live among them?
