I seem to recall a female writer from Bangladesh who had taken refuge in one of the Scandinavian countries in the early nineties. I think her name might have been Tasneem or something similar. She wrote a personal account of being raped and was apparently subjected to much political violence in her own country. I recall and interview of her in the Channel 4 where she was continually smoking while answering questions. Since I had never seen an Asian woman in a sari who smoked before, it was indeed quite a novel image.

Would any of you chaps be able to shed some more light on this writer?

The following is a google search link with the keywords - Bengali Women -
http://images.google.co.uk/images?hl...=1&sa=N&tab=wi

Unfortuntely, a text search seem to bring up a lot of dating sites containing Indian singles!

You have mixed up Taslima Nasreen with Mukhtaran Mai, a pakistani woman who was raped.

interseting that you avoided the word "ugly" in your thread title.

Faria Alam had apparently slept with Sven a few times whilst also sleeping with another Football Assiciation big wig. She later went to the celebrity big brother house. Not that I am a reader of Hello or OK type paparazzi magazines but she seems to have disappeared from the scandal pages.

Zahid: Why didn't you show something then?

I don't know any famous West Bengali females except for some actresses.

As for the Bangladeshi women I showed they were heads of one of the 10 biggest countries in the world i.e. Bangladesh (regardless of how corrupt they are) and the head of a global human rights organization, far more important activities than acting.

Anyway just for you.

Bipasha Hayat from Bangladesh.



NB: Is there any need to mention who "slept" with who and I find this offensive and demeaning to the ladies shown on the thread. Can't we speak about something more meaningful such as the role of Irene Khan in human rights, or Konnie Huq's sister potentially becoming the first UK Bangladeshi member of parliament. I would like to request mods to make sure this thread does not become vulgar and trashy about who did "what" with who.

No one is "ugly" as such bro.

Allah said in the Holy Quran in Surah Teen "laqad khalaqnal insaana fee ahsani taqweem"

"Indeed we created insaan in the best of moulds"

Ulama have said we should not make fun or ridicule people's physical appearances (though dress is different since that is something people can chose).

The lady you are talking about is named Taslima Nasreen. I read in one of her book as she being molested by her uncle as a kid. Unless you were referring to that you might have a fix up as suggested by the person above.

Yes, she became highly controversial and gathered a lot of fame writing about woman's right. Then she said something that hurt religious people's feeling and she was drafted out of the country.

I did not read too many of her writings but I always got the feeling that she just wanted to be famous. Also, my personal opinion about her is that she starts her writing with a valid issue and in analyzing it, she will deliberately reach the wrong conclusion. and she is good at it.

...and from the one book I tried reading of hers, the prose was very ordinary. I got bored and gave up.

I second that.

I don't think Bengali women should be paraded on a forum to demonstrate some sort of fanatic patriotism or ethnic superiority, especially ones from across the border. I'd be very cautious.

Then you should have posted about Faria. Apparently her only claim to fame is being a ****** so you should have left her out to increase the standards of your thread.

I don't understand what GoldenAsif is trying to do in this thread???

Is he trying to show who looks better - Bangladeshi girls or West Bengal girls?

If yes, GoldenAsif .. you better get yourself some tissues. You have just thrown me a challenge. Kantey kantey bari choila jaba
