Welcome to FTB!
I saw you speak at Reason Rally, and I was moved to tears. I look forward to reading your blog. You are such an insightful woman, and you have so much to contribute to the secular community and world.

Dear Ms Nasreen,
You were my favorite speaker at the Reason Rally. Your pronouncement, which touched my heart, was “I am at home wherever I am among atheists”. Having been born in Iran and left due to harassment by islamists, I felt no one ever spoke better for me. I remember vividly that back in the 1990s Iran’s state run media often ranted against you, condemning you for “heresy”. I think you and Maryam Namazie are going to be a tremendous contribution to FTB.

You need to let Ed know your blog is not on the list of FtB blogs on the right sidebar.
April 7, 2012 at 9:17 pm
Welcome to FtB, Taslima. I hope you have a long and happy time here.
And no, I won’t call you the female Rushdie. You are you, unique and special, with something important to say. I look forward to hearing your voice.

Thrilled to see you blogging here, you quickly became one of my favorite speakers for your ability to convey both emotion and information with equally passionate intensity. Very much looking forward to reading the blog.

Hope I can meet you someday
