Bangladesh PM Sheikh Hasina a jihadi sympathizer, says Taslima Nasreen


New Delhi, Apr 30: Noted Bangladeshi writer and human rights activist Taslima Nasreen has accused Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina of being a "jihadi sympathiser".

She took Twitter to express her anger as Bangladesh government is yet to make any arrest in connection with the brutal killing of LGBT magazine editor Zulhas Mannan and his friend Tanay Majumder on April 25.

The attack took place after extremists killed a university professor in Bangladesh's Rajshahi district recently.

Rajshahi University's English department professor A.F.M. Rezaul Karim Siddiquee was hacked to death on April 23 by unidentified assailants.

A number of liberal writers, bloggers and publishers in Bangladesh have been killed or seriously injured in attacks by Islamist extremists since 2013.

Taslima, living in exile since she left Bangladesh in a cloak of secrecy in 1994 in the wake of threats to her by fundamentalist groups, has been getting Indian visa on a continuous basis since 2004.

She figured in the list of top targets prepared by banned militant outfit Ansarullah Bangla Team in November last year.
