Droves of Sudhamoy’s relatives leave for India for good to escape persecution by Muslim thugs, but Sudhamoy, who is trained in medicine, is content to earn a modest sum working as a doctor in his own country.

Babri Masjid demolition, lxjja whatever justifications, is undoubtedly the single greatest failure of our democracy and secularism. Pemerkosaan, penjarahan, penganiayaan, pembunuhan dan penculikan terjadi di seluruh Bangladesh.


Sudhamoy’s character was extremely well developed and meticulously portrayed and if only there were more people like him in the world, we would be in a better place. He bit her breasts, one part of his mind understanding that what he was doing was certainly not love. I struggled to finish the book as the story dragged over the same points over and over again. Nasrin powerfully makes her point in one of her interviews challenging fundamentalists with closed mindset:.
