Popular writer Taslima Nasreen, who is exiled from Bangladeshi, has
slammed the reports that she had written the article, which created
violence in Shimoga and Hassan towns, for any Kannada newspaper.
She said that she was shocked to know that it was provoked by an
article written by her.
Speaking to PTI today, she said, "The incident that occurred in
Karnataka on Monday shocked me. I learned that it was provoked by
an article written by me that appeared in a Karnataka newspaper.
But I've never written any article for any Karnataka newspaper in
Nasreen also said that she had never mentioned that Prophet
Muhammad was against burkha in any of her writings. So she claimed
that it was a distorted story and a deliberate attempt to malign
her and to misuse her writings to create disturbance in the
society. However, she wished peace would prevail.
