She said, In Islam, kids are trained to belt a bomb and blow themselves up, (therefore) such suspicion was obvious." In her latest controversial statement to a newspaper, Taslima Nasreen also added, "They (Chechen brothers Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tsarnaev) were also nice people who were brainwashed by followers of Islam."

She was also quoted as saying, "It is true that white American kids carry firearms and are involved in massacres. But those kids are on their own...they are not brainwashed by Christianity. But the kids in Islam are brainwashed in the name of Islam by Boko Haram or ISIS - that is the difference."
