Bangladeshi writer

Taslima Nasreen says she never wrote for any Kannada daily

Bangladeshi writer-activist Taslima Nasreen Tuesday said she never wrote an article on the Islamic veil that triggered widespread rioting and arson in Karnataka, killing two, and suspected it was an attempt to malign her.

‘In any of my writings, I have never mentioned that Prophet Muhammad was against ‘burqa (veil)’. Therefore, this is a distorted story. I suspect it is a deliberate attempt to malign me and misuse my writings to create disturbance in society. I want peace and communal amity to prevail,’ she said.
