This Somalian writer makes her name not only famous but controversial also with her book infidel. Infidel is her autobiography. It is not only the autobiography but also her call to be infidel and being rebellion to her religion. She is one of those feminists who refused to be silent when it comes for the name of women rights to live by their own. She was wholeheartedly praised by the world for her Fearless thoughts about being infidel and criticizing her own religion. Her book infidel reflects her own journey. The series of thoughts and impression of self-realization reflects in her book. There is no room for imagination as the novel is based on her true story and the incidents, which happened with her while travelling from Somalia to USA.
