Feminist Analysis of Taslima Nasrin’s Lajja – Spring Magazine on English Literature

It’s also a story of a nation that has betrayed its people. It was the eleventh day of riot in Bangladesh, i.

Regarding disputed land, I’ve always believed like Suranjan that all religious places should be destroyed and houses for poor, orphanages, hospitals, schools etc- in short something actually useful should be built in their place, and if you have enough land for that already, sell the land and use the money for charitable purposes but am against destruction of worshipping place of one religion for building that of other.

The Case of Taslima Nasreen of Bangladesh. But after demolition of Babri Masjid and inhuman killings on the streets of Bangladesh, Suronjon’s views are changing rapidly. One of the most serious reads I have read till date. A feminist writer denounces treatment of women as objects of lust, physical and psychological violence.

Hanya manusia yang punya ras dan kelompok. Sat, Sep 27 That the book was banned in large parts of our subcontinent goes to prove that we have thrown introspection out of the window. At one point in time, even Taslima Nasrin was proud of her beautiful country Bangladesh and felt privileged on account of its rich heritage and culture. Being communists, the family did not believe in any religion whether Hindu or Muslim and humanity was the only religion for them. Out of sheer pain of helplessness, misery and frustration, Suranjan began to drink wine and abuse Muslims.


Through the foregoing discussion, an attempt has been made to analyze marginalization of women along with that of the religious minority as depicted in Lajja.

When societal institutions like religion, state, family and society that should provide conducive and safe environment for people in general and women in particular irrespective of their religious backgrounds turn against them, the situation becomes rather abysmal.

Lajja: Shame | Taslima Nasrin | Book Review

As a result of it, they decide to leave for India. The book torments you, makes you introspect the purpose of religion.

Novel ini bercerita ttg 13 hari kehidupan keluarga hindu yg diserang ketakutan yg amat sangat karena setiap hari diteror oleh kaum fundamentalis negeri itu sebagai aksi balasan atas pembakaran Masjid Babri di Ayodhya, India.

Umat Islam di Bangladesh, melakukan pembalasan ke umat hindu di negaranya. Sebagai aktivis demokrasi dan anti komunal Suranjan merasa telah menabrak tembok tebal yg tak mungkin dapat dihancurkan oleh kedua tangannya.

A very nominal sum is allotted for minority religions — in fact four times that sum goes only to rehabilitation of those who chose to converted to Islam.

Sudhamoy, seorang dokter yang turut berjuang memerdekakan Banglades dari Pakistan, tak pernah menyangka bahwa nasibnya akan menjadi seburuk itu di negeri tercintanya.

Seperti sering kita saksikan, agama menjadi lem perekat yang kuat bagi para pemeluknya di mana-mana.

That time it was sounding like a total fiction to me. Pokoke novel yg sangat mengerikan dech Similarly Surnajan seems to remember sayings of Jinnah and Kalam okay as well as the constitution along with the many amendments that have gone in it not okay.

Nevertheless, the novel also exhibits immense potential to be studied from a feminist perspective. Nasrin powerfully makes her point in one of her interviews challenging fundamentalists with closed mindset:.

Exhaustive in its detail, one must really appreciate the taslmia boldness. Far more nuanced accounts of communal violence have been fictionalized by writers from Bangladesh, such as Akhtaruzzaman Ilyas and Selina Hossein. They can kill anyone in the name of God. Our new places of worship should be academies of art and culture, centers of creativity and Institutes of scientific research.

They cannot observe any religious rituals of their own and cannot practice anything signifying their religion. I tasliima the book cover to cover, hoping that there would be some redeeming factor, but what little story there was appeared to be merely an excuse to loosely link pages and pages of wrongs.

Kucing garong di pasar, kucing yang singgah dan tidur di teras, semuanya barangkali punya hak yang sama akan tulang ikan yang terserak di tempat sampah. The theme of the novel is the evil side of communalism which unfortunately is still relevant in the sub-continent even after more than two decades since the book was This is the book which made the author a household name in India after she had to leave her country Bangladesh post this book started being talked about everywhere.

Tslima the thoughts and words of the hero, she subtly addressees the politics of language, how the streets lajna institutions were renamed, and how the ones that retained their old Hindu lajma were reduced to acronyms.

Dan akhirnya Suranjan terperosok ke dalam lubang Komunalis dan anti islam. Di Banglades sendiri, novel ini dilarang beredar lima bulan setelah penerbitannya Dan bahwa itu artinya Indonesia bukan hanya milik satu golongan atau satu agama saja, meski itu agama mayoritas rakyat di sini. Dan terjadilah migrasi besar-besaran umat Novel ini lebih tepat adalah kumpulan berita yang di ceritakan taslika tokoh ceritanya.

The helplessness of Hindu I read this book in my late teenage. At every step in the novel, she is portrayed as an tasljma wife who serves the family and makes all possible sacrifices to keep the family going.
