New Delhi, Jun 4: Controversial writer Taslima Nasreen feels that her life is under threat from "fundamentalist forces" but says she will continue to write despite attacks on her.

The writer, who is now in Sweden after leaving India in March last, says that extremists "who know nothing about my work" are trying to fulfil their political ambitions by targeting her constantly. "Some extremists are after me. They want to suppress my voice. But they should learn from the past experience that I am not amongst those who get terrorised by their threats or attacks or fatwas. I have full faith in Indian democracy," the 46-year-old writer said. Taslima was there to release the Telugu edition of her novel Shodha. Nasreen,thrown out of Kolkata in November last year following violent protests by All India Minority Forum against her stay in India, was staying at an undisclosed place in New Delhi for security reasons, before she left to Sweden in March.
