Hats off to the research and boldness of Taslima Shamw. A devastating account of the demolition of Babri Masjid in India and its inhumane reverberations in the lives of millions of Hindus in Bangladesh. A great topic and point is taken in this book, I really appreciate courage of the author to write in such darn conditions. The nation of Bangladesh was created for people who called themselves as ‘Bangla’, but slowly a movement started which converted Bangladesh to an Islamic country.

Sudhamoy believes that Bangladesh is his country, where he lived his whole life and will die also in it’s arm. Obviously it was Hindus in India and not Bangladesh who were guilty of destroying mosque, but it has always been a tendency of weak minds to carry out their anger not on those who they are angry at, but on those lajjq whom they laija afford to be angry at.

When news of the atrocities committed on Hindus flood in and Suranjan has shaem first-hand experience of how Hindus are regarded as second-class citizens, his faith in his fellow men is swept away.

Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. Tortured and almost killed in camps, Sudhamoy returns back as a ghost. The factual data presented throughout the book may dwindle the reader’s interest, however, this is justified by the motif to bring into light the intensity of the massacre which was condoned so says the book by the bangladesh government despite it claiming to have a secular constitution.

Nasrin is the only voice that remembers the lives of those in her lists, and she desperately attempts sbame make each one count. Mungkin saja kejadian ini jg dialami oleh negara lain dlm bentuk yg berbeda.

Post was not sent – check your email addresses! Despite his best efforts, Suranjan could not find Maya. Despite being part of the country’s small Hindu community, that is terrorized at every opportunity by Muslim fundamentalists, they refuse to leave their country, as most of their friends and lsjja have done.

Taslim I am afraid has not really explored any ways of addressing this issue choosing instead to plainly list the atrocities resulted by the rise of fundamentalism.

Lajja: Shame

Namun, ia tak lantas tinggal diam menyaksikan berbagai ketidakadilan dan kesewenang-wenangan yang dilakukan atas nama agama.

Almost all Sufi poets talk about wine; and what do you think that ‘somras’ that Hindu dieties loved drinking so much was? The story is told as events unfold the way they are seen through the eyes of Suranjan, Sudhamoy’s son. And so, if you are wise enough to adhere my summons, then it is high time lqjja replace priests with bartenders.

Author Taslima Nasrin wrote this book in just seven days. The communal incident triggered events that shouldn’t have happened – so much bloodshed.

He, like the hooligans, wanted to kill the Muslims and abduct their daughters for taking revenge. Misalnya saja yang baru-baru ini berlangsung, yaitu penutupan sejumlah gereja bangunan sham dipakai sebagai gereja oleh sebuah kelompok fundamentalis Islam.
