I sympathize with Ms. Taslima Nasreen. She has done a good thing by agreeing to delete some offending portions from her book. In the present context of all-round violent environment in India, she has done a sensible thing.
I compare this to the act of Mahatma Gandhi, who withdrew the Non-Co-operation Movement in 1922, after the Chowri Chowra Incident which turned violent.
I view like this. Mount Everest cannot be climbed in one go. It may need several attempts. Sometimes, the climber has to temporarily withdraw.
*What is the use? The Indian Government refused to shelter her. India could shelter Dalai Lama who takes up political campaigns, but not Tasleema Nasreen. Why?
