Lajja, first published in 1993, is a controversial novel written by Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasrin. The book takes readers on a journey through the anti-Hindu riots that were carried out in Bangladesh, through the eyes of the protagonists - the Dutta family. When the Babri Masjid is demolished in the year 1992 in India, a wave of violence against Hindus erupts in Bangladesh, where Hindus are a minority. While their friends flee the country, the Duttas decide to stay back. With the premise set, the author goes on to show readers how the Duttas deal with the riots, and what happens next. Though the novel was banned in specific Indian states, it sold over 50,000 copies, just 6 months after it was published.
Taslima Nasrin is an award-winning writer, who is famous for her powerful writings on religious extremism and women’s oppression. She was born in Mymensingh in East Pakistan on the 25th of August, 1962. Apart from being a writer, she is a poet, a secular humanist, a human rights activist, a physician, and a feminist. Her strong words and uncompromising attitude towards male domination have made her a controversial figure. Her other popular works include, Shodh, Nimontron, Shorom, Phera, and Minu.
After reading this novel I was not be able to sleep for days. It is a very nerve cracking novel about the realities of those days in bangladesh. I loved it for the way story moves around a family which is torn down by riots at the same time giving a full picture of the realities surrounding them.
