Taslima Nasreen Fans Take To Twitter, Demand Her Indian Citizenship
Taslima, the banished writer, took refuge in Kolkata, but the then Left Front government in 2007 expelled her. She was whisked her way to Delhi by security agencies after a local Muslim cleric issued a fatwa against her. A large number of Islamic fundamentalists had staged violent protests in Kolkata at that time.
The Bengali writer first moved to Sweden, then to New York. She later returned to New Delhi, where she is staying under police security. Her residential permit is being extended every year despite requests from several quarters that she be granted Indian citizenship. Her current residential permit expires in August this year.
On a day when Pakistani singer Adnan Sami was granted Indian citizenship by the Home Ministry , a large number of fans of Bengali writer Taslima Nasreen took to social media and requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to consider granting her Indian citizenship.
