    • “A state with a national religion can easily become a religious state.”This book has been given by Bangladesh government the highest honor that any government can ever give to any book – a ban. The book follows the story of one Sudhamay and his children Suranjan and Maya. The father and son have both been involved in nationalistic movements of Bangladesh and believe in their country. Sudhamay can’t stand the idea of leaving the country while his friends and relatives have – he even ask [...]


    • Babri Masjid demolition, under whatever justifications, is undoubtedly the single greatest failure of our democracy and secularism. While it spiked communal unrest in India, immediate butterfly effect was visible somewhere else, someplace that shares the same secular values, at Bangladesh.Author claims to have written this novel over a week of religious unrest, which escalated into demolition of century old temples and violence against minority Hindus, in retaliation to what happenings in India. [...]


    • Taslima Nasrin, narrates a agonizing description of a country immersed in religious and political conflict. The pain suffered within your country but still loving it. When you read it, Sudhamoy's optimism about Bangladesh is infuriating. You want to shake him up and say look at the reality and stop being so ideal. But at the same time you still understand his love for the country for which Hindus and Muslims together fought for independence. Even after what happened to him, he continues to love [...]


    • Highly exhaustive in terms of its analysis of factual inputs. Was hoping for more story-telling than facts thrown at my face (however important they may be). A read for those who prefer non-fiction-alized read of historical narratives. Sadly, I'm not one of them.


    • Thirsting for my motherland's loveIn the winter of 1994, shortly after Lajja was released, I remember participating in a Quiz contest and being asked to name the author of Lajja. I had answered correctly: Taslima Nasreen. It was two years then since the Babri Masjid had been demolished, but I hadn't known of any connection between the demolition and the book. In fact, it is only now on reading Lajja, a good twenty years since the book was launched, that I found out how the demolition of Babri Ma [...]


    • Sebelum membaca buku ini aku sudah baca beberapa reviewnya, jadi sudah dapat memperkirakan isinya, tapi tetap masih penasaran untuk membacanya. Beruntung dapat pinjaman dari Nurul.Lajja (dalam bahasa Bangladesh berarti malu) ,novel fiksi yang bersumber dari fakta yang nyata tentang 13 hari kehidupan keluarga Sudhamoy di Bangladesh yang penuh teror dan ketakutan.Bangladesh adalah Negara pecahan dari Pakistan, tepatnya di Pakistan sebelah timur. Bangladesh berdiri pada th. 1971 mayoritas rakyatnya [...]


    • A devastating account of the demolition of Babri Masjid in India and its inhumane reverberations in the lives of millions of Hindus in Bangladesh. What begins as a slow paced story spirals into a heartbraking account once the violence hits the protagonist and his family. The factual data presented throughout the book may dwindle the reader's interest, however, this is justified by the motif to bring into light the intensity of the massacre which was condoned (so says the book) by the bangladesh [...]


    • I read this book in my late teenage. That time it was sounding like a total fiction to me. But by knowing the realities of the Muslim fanatics of Pakistan and Bangladesh later, I guess it was much lesser than reality. This novel tells about the miserable lives of Hindus in Bangladesh. The way ISIS has been treating non-muslim women, the Lajja can be story of non-Muslim women in almost every muslim country. The mindset of Muslim predators is explained in the story line. The helplessness of Hindu [...]


    • لا أدري ماذا أقول عن هذه الرواية ولكنها حقيقة سببت لي إكتئابا إن الواقع الذي حكت عنه تسليمة لهو واقع مأساوي يشعرك كم نحن على شفير هاوية من التعصب والعنصرية البغيضة وغياب أسمى قيم الحياة الإنسانية نعم إنها العودة إلى حياة الغاب ، ما قالته تسليمة لا يستطيع أحد نكرانه مانراه من [...]


    • تركز الرواية على مسألة الانسانية قبل أن يكون الشخص مسلما أو هندوسيا أو مسيحيا أو بوذيوالكاتبة هنا لاتهاجم الأسلام كدين ولكنها تهاجم ممارسات المتعصبين من الهندوس والمسلمين


    • The true shame is found in the fact that this vitally important topic is lost in the pedantic, repetitive recitation of the horrors inflicted upon the Hindu Bangladeshi by Muslims – pages and pages and pages of the stuff. After a while, the brain glazes over and refuses to absorb any more. It’s so sad that the message is lost, and so unnecessary. I read the book cover to cover, hoping that there would be some redeeming factor, but what little story there was appeared to be merely an excuse t [...]


    • Mulai kini biarlah rumah ibadah menjadi akademi seni, sekolah seni rupa, balai diskusi sains. Biarlah tempat-tempat pemujaan menjadi sawah ladang bermandi cahaya matahari, sungai biru yang mengalir, dan samudra liar yang tak pernah diam. Biarlah agama berganti nama menjadi kemanusiaan" (hal 254) Ketika membaca fatwa Majelis Ulama Indonesia (MUI) beberapa waktu lalu yang mengharamkan pluralisme dalam hubungannya menyikapi kelompok aliran Islam Ahmadiyah , saya tertegun. Apakah para ulama negara i [...]


    • *NOTE: We (The Readdicts) received a copy of Lajja by Taslima Nasrin from Random House India in exchange for an honest review. We thank the publishing house for the book! I had been looking forward to reading author Taslima Nasrin's Lajja since a very long time, and once I read it, I realised why it is banned in Bangladesh, but appreciated all over the world. Communal riots is a term residents of South Asia know very well, and fear as well. The negativity of human nature is at its peak at such t [...]

    • Whatever this book may be as a sociopolitical statement, it makes a remarkably poor novel. I basically skimmed through it after 50 pages or so. All the characters talked like newspapers. The story should have been suspenseful, especially after Maya's abduction, but I couldn't bring myself to care about either the fate of the Dutta family or the Hindu/Muslim problem at large. Frankly, I was bored stiff by this book. Maybe I am just not the right audience.


    • من الحمق وصف المتطرفين بأسماء دياناتهم صدقا لم أجد فرقا بين متطرف مسلم ومسيحي ويهودي وهندوسي واكاد اجزم ان احد من هؤلاء لو ولد على دين اخر لتعصب له وقتل باسمه اصحاب الديانات الاخرى الذي ولولا الصدفة البحتة لولد ذلك المتطرف ونشأ على دين من سيتقلهم لاحقالم أكن اعرف ان بنجلاديش [...]


    • As a story per se, it is about the riots that happen in Bangladesh as an aftermath of the Babri Masjid demolition and how a Hindu family pays a heavy price because its men happen to be too idealistic. But actually it is a thinly disguised factual account of all the gruesome violence that took place in Bangladesh: The ruthlessness, uglyness and the scale of it. By the way of story, Taslima Nasrin puts up an ideological debate about how secularism is an essential tenet of democracy and how a minor [...]


    • This is the book which made the author a household name in India after she had to leave her country(Bangladesh) post this book started being talked about everywhere. She had written this book like a documentary as a response to the series of communal violence that happened in Bangladesh after the demolition of Babri Masjid in 1992. 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 [...]


    • مؤلمة هذه الرواية ، انه من الصعب ان يجد الانسان نفسه غريبا في بلده وان يدفع اخطاء الاخرين التي لادخل له بها


    • I think I was fourteen years old when I first picked up a battered second-hand copy of Lajja (Shame) by Taslima Nasrin in a bookstore. And then I heard a voice of a friend, saying that I should not read such "controversial" books. Back home, I asked my mother what was Lajja, and she said: "It's a great book, but messes up your mind to a certain extent". And after reading Lajja, I think she was right, it does messes up with your mind but in a positive manner.Few weeks back I visited Baharison's b [...]


    • Novel ini lebih tepat adalah kumpulan berita yang di ceritakan oleh tokoh ceritanya. Ditulis berdasarkan kisah nyata.Mengisahkan tentang tragedi akibat fanatisme agama di Bangladesh. Tragedi yang dipicu dari pembakaran mesjid Babri di Ayodya pada 6 desember 1992 di India oleh umat hindu. Umat Islam di Bangladesh, melakukan pembalasan ke umat hindu di negaranya. Rumah ibadah hindu di bakar. Tanah dan harta di rampas dan perempuan-perempuannya di perkosa. Dan terjadilah migrasi besar-besaran umat [...]


    • This was a novel I had been wanting to read for a long time but never had enough guts to do so. This is a highly sensitive novel and some areas are really difficult to read because there are terribly horrifying. Lajja means shame, is a response to anti-Hindu riots which erupted in parts of Bangladesh, soon after the demolition of Babri Masjid in India on 6 December 1992. The book subtly indicates that communal feelings were on the rise, the Hindu minority of Bangladesh was not fairly treated, an [...]


    • Lajja, it means shame in Bengali. There are two types of authors who write poorly about their nation. Those who either want to achieve fame quickly and those who want to point to their nation that it has wronged a certain section of its society. Taslima Nasreen in this book looks like she belongs to the second category. In a country where one will have to stifle their opinions (bbc/news/world-asia-), it must have been an arduous task (both physically and psychologically)for Nasreen to write this [...]


    • Introduction:I don't think I need to give introduction of this book. This was the controversial book which made Taslima to be a refugee in the India. First publish in 1993, this book was a bold account of riots happened after Babri masjid issue. Plot summary: Babri masjid was demolished on the date of 6 December 1992 in India. At that time the whole country was suffering from Hindu- Muslim riots. The heat of communal riot went around Bangladesh which erupted anti- Hindu riots. Taslima has weaved [...]


    • One of the most serious reads I have read till date.Pages full of dense texts and facts that you may never know if you have not read this one.The pain that Hindus in Bangladesh have gone through during the Babri masjid demolition riots is what this book title says - SHAME.Hats off to the research and boldness of Taslima Nasreen. To put these facts in a book demands a lot of courage. Once you read this book, you will come to realize why she was threatened and banned because of this book.This is a [...]



    • Membaca novel ini bikin capek hati Sebenarnya Lajja adalah novel fiksi ttp fakta2 nyata yg diungkapkan oleh Taslima Nasreen ttg negerinya sangat mengerikan.Tidak heran bila Taslima Nasreen, si empunya karya ini mendapat kecaman yg sangat keras dari pemerintah Bangladesh dan dianggap sbg pengkhianat bangsa sehingga dia harus meminta suaka dari negara lain.Lajja dalam bahasa Bangladesh berarti malu, dan kalimat yg menjadi kuncinya adalah " Biarlah agama berganti nama menjadi kemanusiaan ". Novel i [...]


    • lajja is a book that was recommended to me by a friend who had not even finished it. but she apparently liked it so much that she did not want to read the book ahead, scared that it will end on a bad note!! instead she asked me to read it!!i picked up the book because i wanted to know what made her put it down!! taslima nasrin is a very famous author who was thrown out of the country because she had written about wrong doings Hindus had to face in Bangladesh after Babri masjid was destroyed in I [...]


    • لا تكمن أهمية هذه الرواية في أسلوبها الخارق، ولا في حبكتها العبقرية ! إنما هو الموضوع ما يجعل منها مثيرة للجدل.تنحدر تسليمة نسرين من بنغلادش تلك الدولة التي تحمل تاريخاً دموياً من الصراع الموروث عن الإستعمار البريطاني لشبه القارة الهندية. تلك الدولة والتي ولدت من الأطراف ال [...]


    • It was honestly one of the more powerful books ive read, this especially coming from an atheist with Islamic roots, which in itself attracts a bit of attention more often than not in our world. What i really liked about this book is that it flows smoothly and quickly inspite of trying to bring across a point. A point that id say i would agree with any given day of the week, ie, religion is the weakest and more egregious opiate known to corrupt and ruin mans pursuit and life. perhaps my attractio [...]
