Now, I’m not a hater of Islam, but the behavior of some Muslims continues to disgust me. The latest sorry episode in the ongoing harrassment of Taslima Nasrin is a case in point. These fundamentalist twits caused Ms. Nasrin to “grumble” before agreeing to flee Calcutta for her own safety. I echo her grumbling and find myself, yet again, forced to wonder when her situation will receive more attention from groups like International PEN, whose web site contains a mere 3 references to Nasrin.
