She’s a great lady and a ,ajja writer. When societal institutions like religion, state, family and society that should provide conducive and safe environment for people in general and women in particular irrespective of their religious backgrounds turn against them, the situation becomes rather abysmal. Why being Hindu is crime in Bangladesh. Sudhamoy puts his family at stake for what he believes and it aggravated me so much to read the book through his lens.

Mob behaviour has nothing to do with religion. Kata “lajja” dalam bahasa Bengali berarti “malu”. Numerous tales of heroic women killing themselves rather than succumbing to sexual assault are very much a part of Bangladeshi folk culture.
