Taslima Nasrin: Fleeing from a totalitarian and corrupt regime
by Giulia Mazza – January 17, 2012
The famous writer tells AsiaNews about her exile from Bangladesh, the country “nominally democratic country, but which in reality is only a corrupt government.” Following the pubblication of her novel Lajja (Shame), Taslima had to flee the state in 1994 because of Islamist death threats. All her books are banned in her homeland.
“Bangladesh is a totalitarian regime with a corrupt government. There is nothing democratic about, it is only a pretense it presents to the world”, Taslima Nasrin, the well known Bangladeshi writer, does not mince his words speaking to AsiaNews. For 17 years she has been exiled from Bangladesh and her family, after she was forced to flee in 1994 because of death threats from an Islamic fundamentalist group. Taslima, originally a Muslim but now a self-declared atheist, wrote Lajja (Shame), in 1993 a novel that tells the story of a Hindu family persecuted by Muslims. Billed as blasphemous, by the Bangladeshi government of the era (the Bangladesh Nationalist Party of Khaleda Zia, now in opposition), it was banned together with the other author’s books. Islamic fundamentalists launched a fatwa (ruling) against Taslima, accusing her of blasphemy and calling for her death by hanging. Having already abandoned the practice of medicine in 1994 she left Bangladesh to live in India, where she also received death threats.

Under house arrest in England, the WikiLeaks founder opens up about his battle with the ‘Times,’ his stint in solitary and the future of journalism
By Michael Hastings – January 18, 2012
It’s a few days before Christmas, and Julian Assange has just finished moving to a new hide-out deep in the English countryside. The two-bedroom house, on loan from a WikiLeaks supporter, is comfortable enough, with a big stone fireplace and a porch out back, but it’s not as grand as the country estate where he spent the past 363 days under house arrest, waiting for a British court to decide whether he will be extradited to Sweden to face allegations that he sexually molested two women he was briefly involved with in August 2010.
