Blogger flees to US after death threats

By lunaradmin - Jun 03, 2015      

Writer and human rights activist Taslima Nasreen has fled from India to the US after repeated death threats by Islamists who killed three secular bloggers this year in Bangladesh.  Dr. Nasreen attempted to meet with the Governemnt of India but had no appointment.  She had received death threats before in Bangladesh back in 1994 where she fled to Europe and the US for a decade before India granted her a residential permit in 2004.

Dr. Nasreen arrived in Buffalo, New York today and was aided by CFI staff.  Each murder on the bloggers in Bangladesh was carried out on busy streets.  Hopefully Dr. Nasreen can find refuge in the US.
