Taslima Nasreen leaves India

Taslima had to leave under intense pressure from Govt of India. Of course, Pranab Mukherjee and his cronies (Buddhadeb being one of them) are gloating over it, but in a poem, just before departure, Taslima, in her true- to- herself form, lambasts “secular” India for kowtowing to Muslim fundamentalists just for vote-politics.

Personally I’m happy that her ordeal is somehow over, and she has found freedom once again, though in a land where few people talk her mother tongue (this is an important issue with her, and something cardinal to choosing her place of living). She can now breathe in freely in open space and take care of her failing health – especially her retinopathy.

Taslima still has an illusion: she hopes to come back to India in August.

Why India again, Taslima? Have you not had enough of it in terms of its hypocrisy, double talk, and persecution mentality?

Do you think India would welcome you back ? Ever?
