Women activists should enter villages instead of Sabarimal temple: Taslima Nasreen

Controversial Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen wondered why women activists were so eager to enter the Sabarimala shrine, which opened for a two-month long pilgrimage season on Friday, and said instead they should visit villages where women face several issues.

“They should enter the villages where women suffer from domestic violence, rape, sexual abuse, whre girls have no access to education, health care, and no freedom to take up  a job or get equal pay”, she said.

The author has been living in exile in India and Europe after having incurred the wrath of fundamentalists back home over a novel written by her in 1994.
