Taslima’s readers and fans

Taslima Nasreen has a lot of tweets about the cancellation of (or move outside of) her book launch in Kolkata. News media have been quoting her tweets, so I might as well do a few too. (How nice it would be if she had a blog.) She is getting plenty of support. The bullies don’t have a monopoly, by any means.

Wow! Veiled girls buying & reading my books. I hope they would soon remove their veils & start living w dignity.

One from twelve hours ago:

Dhaka Book Fair in Muslim Majority Bangladesh now successfully launched my book. Kolkata Book Fair in Muslim minority India could not.

    The fact that they are interested in Taslima Nasreen’s books suggests that their wearing veils may not be entirely voluntary.

    Yes indeed. I’m sure that’s Taslima’s thought too. 140 characters ruled out saying it perhaps.
