Exiled Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen has got yet
another extension of her visa for six months with India indicating that her
request for permanent residentship in the country would be taken up only by the
new government after general elections.
The author was in India recently in connection with her visa
extension. She was, however, told that she should pursue the issue from outside
as it was not advisable for her to be in India due to security reasons.
Sources in the home ministry said Taslima's visa was extended till August 16.
Though she had applied for resident permit, she was asked to take up the issue
after polls. The author had left India after getting her visa extended as it
was not advisable
