Correspondence:  Repression of Muslim feminist in India

21 August 2007

Dear friends,

A petition has been launched concerning the attacks on Taslima Nasreen, first in Hyderabad, and then as a follow up in Kolkata, where unlimited financial rewards were declared for anyone killing her. Please find below the URL of the petition. We appeal to you to sign the petition.

Maitreyi Chatterjee and Mira Roy

(Taslima is a Muslim feminist and writer whose criticisms of Sharia law and Muslim fundamentalism make her the target of jihadists.  In this incident the secular Indian state is pandering to the bigots).
