Writer told not to go out in public
by UPI

NEW DELHI -- The Indian government Thursday reportedly told Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen, who is in hiding in the country, not to go out in public.

Nasreen described the restrictions against her, which also include being barred from meeting people, apparently to protect her from Islamic threats, as amounting to house arrest, the Press Trust of India reported.

The Muslim author, whose writings have angered some Islamic groups as being anti-Islam, has been living in exile in India because of Islamic threats. In the past month she has been living at an undisclosed location in New Delhi after she was asked to leave Calcutta by the leftist state government there.

"If I live in India, I would not be allowed outside. I will not be allowed to meet any friends. I will have to live this way in India and it must not be in Kolkata (formerly Calcutta)," PTI quoted the 46-year-old author as saying.

Nasreen said she told the Indian government official, "I am not a criminal that I will not be allowed to return to Kolkata."

Since the controversy over her latest book, Nasreen has offered to remove those lines deemed anti-Islamic.
