Taslima Nasreen denies writing for Kannada Newspaper

New Delhi: While Shimoga and Hassan towns in Karnataka remained tense for the second consecutive day over Taslima Nasreen’s article in a Kannada newspaper, the controversial writer has denied writing any article for the news daily.

“I have never written an article and Monday’s protest in Shimoga has really shocked me. The article was published to malign me”, said Taslima Nasreen.

At least three people were killed and several others injured during the clashes between police and protesters in Shimoga. Both Shimoga and Hasan witnessed large-scale violence, arson and protests. A dawn-to-dusk curfew was imposed in Shimoga.

The trouble began when an article against the burqa tradition was published in a Kannada newspaper named ‘Kannada Prabha’. The article was attributed to Taslima Nasreen, triggering protests in Shimoga and Hasan.
