The Mufti Was Being Sarcastic Is My Guess

Taslima Nasreen, who had to flee Bangladesh after the publication of Lajja, has a new book out, Ka, a thinly veiled authobiography. This time she’s in the cross-hairs of fellow author, who was upset that she portrayed him as taking two women to a guesthouse and leaving drunk (the horror!). The book’s distribution was stopped after that author filed suit. But now, Nasreen is being thanked for her courage by an unlikely group: the religious party IOJ. Nasreen is currently a fellow at Harvard.
