A short story on #Left, #Congress, #TMC and #MIM duplicity.
Author @taslimanasreen had to flee #Bangladesh after #Islamists / #Jamaatis called for her death for her book 'Lajja'. The book dealt with terrible attacks on Hindus in Bangladesh post-Babri demolition. #CAB 1/n
Taslima had to be literally smuggled out of Bangladesh to #Sweden. She wanted to live in #India, more specifically in #Kolkata , to be near her homeland. The ABV Govt gave her a long-term residence visa. Taslima set up home in Kolkata and lived on her writings. #CAB 2/n
Muslim leaders jn Kolkata were never comfortable with her presence. @cpimspeak then in power in #WestBengal banned her autobiography (courts later removed the ban). The #Left Front engineered anti-Taslima riots with the help of a #Congress Muslim leader (with TMC now). #CAB 3/n
Taslima Nasreen was forcibly put on a plane to Jaipur by the police. From there she travelled to Delhi where she still lives with residence permits. #Congress was not pleased. Pranab Mukherjee as Foreign Minister tried his best to convince her to leave #India. #CAB 4/n
Taslima cannot set foot in Bengal as #TMC will not allow it. Just as Salman Rushdie cannot visit Kolkata. Once when he planned a visit thousands of Jamaatis laid siege to Kolkata Airport. TMC Govt did nothing to prevent the siege. Neither #Left nor #Congress protested. #CAB 5/n
When Taslima Nasreen travelled to Hyderabad for a book release event, MLAs and goons of @asadowaisi 's #MIM assaulted her in full public view. She escaped a lynching by the skin of her teeth. Later MIM stopped her from entering Aurangabad. #CAB 6/n
Where do the sympathies of #TMC, #Congress and #Left lie? The TMC Govt in West Bengal allowed a massive protest by #Jamaatis in Kolkata in support of 1971 war criminals and razakars sentenced to death in #Bangladesh. Left, Congress kept silent. Not a pipsqueak. #CAB 7/n
It is pretty thick of #Congress, #Left and #TMC to now demand that 'persecuted' Muslims from #Pakistan, #Afghanistan and #Bangladesh should be sheltered in #India. That's hogwash. @cpimspeak collaborated with @INCIndia to deny shelter to Bangladeshi poet Daud Haider. #CAB 8/n
The #Left, #Congress, #TMC-supporting Left-Lib Jamaat is either ill-informed (unlikely) or is being disingenuous (likely). They have suddenly discovered the virtue of sheltering persecuted Muslims. All these years the proverbial cat had their made-of-lead tongues. #CAB 9/n
To understand why #India needs #CitizenshipAmendmentBill2019 read The Blood Island by @deepscribble . It tells the story of @cpimspeak 's horrific crime against persecuted Hindus seeking shelter in #WestBengal. @INCIndia , of which #TMC is born, was complicit. #CAB 10/n
