Suppression and exploitation in Taslima Nasrin's Laija
Author(s): Kalpana Agrawal, Vinod Mishra, Poonam Pandey
Abstract: The article brings out the sufferings of common people under the name of religion and culture of the South Asian Society as picturised by Taslima Nasrin. Lajja is an account of the Religious and social discrimination and suppression which became more virulent with the outburst against the demolition of the Babri Masjid in India on 6 December, 1992. It is a serious indictment against continuous and sustained subjugation of the minority community. Taslima Nasrin convinces the readers that the fundamentalist forces can stopped if all of us who are secular and humanistic join together and fight their malignant influence.
