Lajja: Shame | Taslima Nasrin | Book Review

Membaca buku ini bagiku memberikan pembelajaran bagaimana agar kita sebagai manusia beragama dapat berempati kepada kaum minoritas. Novel ini lebih tepat adalah kumpulan berita yang di ceritakan oleh tokoh ceritanya. Dec 13, Rishi Prakash rated it really liked it. Sudhamoy yang mantan aktivis penggerak kemerdekaan Bangladesh, tak berada di tempat saat sang Ayah terkena stroke, tak juga ada saat adiknya Maya diculik penjarah.

Certain questions like what the abductors must be doing with Maya; whether they may have tied up her legs and then raped her lakja by one; how she must be tolerating the pain; whether she would be living or dead etc.

Pada tahunwilayah Pakistan Timur menuntut kemerdekaan dan negara sendiri, terpisah dari Pakistan yang Islam. It earned her a bounty on her head from Islamic fundamentalists, forced her to flee the country, and turned her talsima an international icon for human rights as well as one of the most controversial literary figures from the subcontinent. Lajja dalam bahasa Bangladesh berarti malu, dan kalimat yg menjadi kuncinya adalah ” Biarlah agama berganti nama menjadi kemanusiaan “.


The father and son have both been involved in nationalistic movements of Bangladesh and believe in their country.

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.

As nation is a geo-political entity, so is the body of the woman which is marauded, tortured and abused simply because the narrow nationalistic and fanatic mindset views it as an extension of the former thereby causing what has been discussed above as double marginalization of the women.

While it spiked communal unrest in India, immediate butterfly effect was visible somewhere else, someplace that shares the same secular values, at Bangladesh.

Such that, the female member, however, is tyrannized and is expected to behave according to an established patriarchal norm. Dan terjadilah migrasi besar-besaran taalima hindu ke negara yang mayoritas hindu seperti India dan Sri Langka. He observes that he is not in his country anymore, where he could roam around freely.

Book Review | Lajja

Harta benda mereka dirampas, rumah ibadah Hindu dihancurkan dan perempuan-perempuannya diperkosa. That time it was sounding like a total fiction to me. That how, religion can convert some people into monsters! Paham sekularis, nasionalis, sosialis dan anti komunal yg diyakininya akhirnya harus bertekuk lutut pada kaum fundamentalis terlebih lagi setelah ia kehilangan puteri semata wayangnya yg di taslimaa oleh pemuda2 islam.

Exhaustive in its detail, one must really appreciate the author’s boldness. The theme of the novel is the evil side of communalism which unfortunately is still relevant in the sub-continent even after more than two decades since the book was published. We thank the publishing house for the book! It is easy to understand this book getting banned, for her active criticisms against Awami League, BJP, RSS and other communal political coalitions on their vote mongering hate politics, is very visible.


As we come to know each character, we learn their past and present and how they are in major conflict with their ethnic and national identity.

The violence around continues unabated It highlights male version of the female world which is based on marginalization of women. Almost all Sufi poets talk about wine; and what do you think that ‘somras’ that Hindu dieties loved drinking so much was?

Sudhamoy and Kironmoyee who are the parents of Suranjan and Maya. Pain of parents and Suranjan has been described in a picture perfect way. To Suranjan, Bangladesh is his motherland; he was born here, got educated here, and made friends here. The demolition has repercussions in Bangladesh. Lajja is a response of Taslima Nasrin to anti-Hindu riots that erupted in parts of Bangladesh, soon after the demolition of Babri Masjid in India on 6 December There are several other ways in which the Hindus are discriminated, and both were aware of them, but if you are emotionally invested in some belief you hold on to it against much contrary evidence.
