"Du Maroc à l'Arabie Saoudite, les peines vont de la prison ferme à la peine capitale, le fouet ou le lynchage populaire. Ceux qui ont en fait les frais ne se comptent plus, de Salman Rushdie, à Raef Badawi, en passant par Nawal al-Saadawi, Tasleema Nasreen, Boualem Sansal, Kamel Daoud, Waleed al-Husseini, Cheikh Mohamed Ould El Mkheitir, Ayan Hirsi Ali, Nahed Hattar ... Lorsqu'ils n'ont pas été assassinés, ils ont tous été apostasiés. Ils ont dû s'exiler ou se cacher, ils ont connu la prison, la torture et l'exclusion sociale." --Détruire le fascisme islamique (2016), Zineb El Rhazoui

Taslima Nasrin (also Taslima Nasreen, born 25 August 1962) is a Bangladeshi author and former physician who has been living in exile since 1994. From a literary profile as a poet in the late 1970s, she gained global attention by the beginning of 1990s owing to her essays and novels with feminist views and criticism of what she characterizes as all "misogynistic" religions including Islam.

After living more than a decade in Europe and the USA, Taslima moved to India in 2005, but was banished from the country in 2008.

She advocates freedom of thought and human rights by publishing, lecturing, and campaigning. She has been unable to return either to her home in Bangladesh or to her adopted home of West Bengal, India.
