Controversial Bangladeshi Author Says She Will Leave India


A controversial Bangladeshi author says she is leaving India where she has been living in hiding since receiving death threats from radical Muslims.

Taslima Nasreen told reporters that she suffers from heart problems, high blood pressure and an eye ailment. She said she must leave what she called her "impossible situation."

The author has been living at an undisclosed location in India's capital, New Delhi. Nasreen fled her home in the eastern Indian city of Kolkata last November, after Islamic groups protested her writing.

Last month, India's government extended her visa, but cautioned her not to hurt the sentiments of India's religious groups.

She left her native Bangladesh in 1994 when extremist Muslims accused her of blasphemy for writing her novel "Lajja" -- or "Shame."

Paramashish Ghosh Roy has more on the story.
