Taslima Nasreen, bangladesh, dhaka Taslima Nasreen also said it’s time people should stop saying Islam is a religion of peace.

After reports suggested that all terrorists involved in the recent attack at Dhaka restaurant, in which 20 people were killed, were highly educated and belonged to rich families, Bangladeshi author Taslima Nasreen rubbished the arguments that poverty makes somebody a terrorist.

In a series of tweets, Taslima quoted Saleem Samad that Bangladesh has been a major contributor to global terror and said it’s time people should stop saying Islam is a religion of peace.

        I am renouncing islam from today for good. Reality is it is a no good religion which preaches hate and killing of innocent non-muslims. I encourage all muslims of india and the sub-continent to give-up islam.. adopt any religion but islamic cult and its evil culture of hate and voilence.

            I have gone thru all comments only to find out Muslims still fielding Islam is religion of peace and person who brutally kills people preaching "Allah hu Akbar" do not belong to Islam. Few moron fielded killing of hi by Godse a Hindu hence declared Hinduism is also not a religion of peace.

                On hearing the statement of Taslima Nasreen, Shri Bugger Bagawatji has invited her to head the women's terrorist wing of RSS TERRORISTS. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Messages have been sent to all drooling bhakts from the age of 10 to 90 that they should attend the function. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;So you can see many bhakts, irrespective of age, happily and droolingly admiring her.

                  Big Q is this why we have no comments from Kujli or Aaptards,does it mean they are are hands and gloves or one may say sympathetic to these terrorists?Does it not show their real face?Readers are best judge.

                                    Psychologically unstable people intent on such violence choose to do it in the name of something or some principle. Islam, Crusades and Inquisition of the middle ages, nationalism, racial superiority, Lebensraum, anything is good enough to indulge in what the mad people are bent on doing.

                                      Why is no news house, print or electronic talking about Asaduddin Owaisi?? He has offered free legal aid to these ISIS supporters arrested in Hyderabad. Right now it's not important to me which religion says what. Terror has to be nipped in the bud. These arrested youth wanted to establish an ISIS caliphate in India. Why don't our media houses condemn him? From the Shankaracharyas to Baba Ramdev, Jaggi Vasudev and Sri Sri, the Hinduphobic media has accused targeted everyone with a venom little known to journalism 2 decades back. Now why are they silent??

                                        Tasleema bibi Islam is 1200 years old religion. Ter......ism started 20 years ago. After the west started invading middle eastern countries. If you're looking for the root cause, here it is.

                                          Taslima bibi you have read Holy Quran for negative. You just quote one verse where it preaches war against innocents. What's going on now a days is chain reaction of Muslims being oppressed and killed in Iraq, Syria ,Libya , Palestinians , Afghanistan, Kashmir and so on by non Muslims. These Muslims need to be told to resolve everything through dialogue not through violence........Although long way
