Well-known Bangladeshi blogger and human rights activist, Taslima Nasreen has been courting controversy for decades for her writings against radical Islamism.

Living in exile for 21 years, she has lived in many countries. She has spent a decade in Europe and the US before she came to India on a temporary residential permit in 2004.

Recently, she relocated herself to US from India with the help of Centre for Inquiry after receiving threats by the al Qaeda extremists.
