Lajja: Shame

They were all about twenty-one years old. Novel ini lebih tepat adalah kumpulan berita yang di ceritakan oleh tokoh ceritanya. I mean, can you freaking believe that?

Mulai kini biarlah rumah ibadah menjadi akademi seni, sekolah seni rupa, balai diskusi sains. Hanya manusia yang punya ras dan kelompok. The plight of a Hindu family is presented against the backdrop of Islamic fundamentalism with occasional references to real instances of communal violence in Bangladesh. Driven away from their motherlands, and living as refugees in another country which they cannot call their own, the immigrants are probably the most affected people in any war.

Taslim I am afraid has not really explored any ways of addressing this issue choosing instead to plainly list the atrocities resulted by the rise of fundamentalism. Aq rasa kejadian yg mengerikan di novel itu tak hanya terjadi di Bangladesh.

The book is a laudable work of courage, and it lifts the smoke screen from the pretentious secularism to reveal inequality and fascist fundamentalism. All ansrin the first part of the story, you have seen Suranjan nasrrin friends, squandering his time.


To quote from the text: In fact, Nasrin too, as a feminist writer condemns violence against women. Sudhamoy believes that Bangladesh is his country, where he lived his whole life and will die also in it’s arm. He scratched her waist, her stomach, her buttocks and her thighs with his sharp nails. Sudhamoy and Kiranmoye tried their best but they could do nothing against seven hooligans who very quickly took Maya away.

Namun aku pikir, buku ini penting di baca terutama, orang-orang yang fanatik, agar bisa memahami akibat dari fanatisme buta. Mar 30, Amit Srivastava rated it it was amazing. And after reading Lajja, I think she was right, it does messes up with your mind but in a positive manner. I think I was fourteen years old when I first picked up a battered second-hand copy of Lajja Shame by Taslima Nasrin in a bookstore.

Lajja meaning ‘shame’ is a novel set in Bangladesh and revolves around the life of a Hindu family, the Duttas. Lajja means shame, is a response to anti-Hindu riots which erupted in parts of Bangladesh, soon after the demolition of Babri Masjid in India on 6 December Our new places of worship should be academies of art and culture, centers of creativity and Institutes of scientific research.

Maya was a special character and the hero of the book. Taslama great writer Like Like. Jangan langsung menarik diri, karena Islam di buku ini memang sangat kejam.

Lajja: Shame | Taslima Nasrin | Book Review

Harta benda mereka dirampas, rumah ibadah Hindu dihancurkan dan perempuan-perempuannya diperkosa. The novel follows the disillusionment of this father and son about their country. Secularism is the answer in Indian Taslima has tried to focus on the ugly spectre of communalism in Bangladesh after the Baburi masjid demolition in India. And then the real trouble comes home, thrash everything around with brute force.

And that goes for Bangladeshi spades too – again questioning the communal party who was causing riots and secular ruling party which had maintained silence.

It’s also a story of a nation that has betrayed its people. As a result of it, they decide to leave for India.

Tapi taslimx thn UUD Bangladesh diubah dengan mencantumkan Islam sebagai agama resmi, maka keadaan berubah, kedamaian tidak dirasakan lagi.

There is not much to be said on the writing as the version I read is a translation, but it can easily be figured out that author Taslima Nasrin’s writing is absolutely impeccable and flawless. According to her, Lajja is a document of our People of Indian subcontinent collective defeat.
