New Delhi: In the wake of the Dhaka terror attack which claimed lives of 20 innocent foreigners, noted Bangladeshi Author Taslima Nasreen said that Islam is no longer a religion of peace.
In a series of tweets, the Lajja author also rubbished the arguments that poverty makes somebody a terrorist.
Her comments came amid reports that the attackers were highly educated and belonged to rich families.
She said that the terrorists who entered the restaurant as they set off explosives, shouting "Allahu Akbar" (God is Greater), should be called 'Islamic terrorists' rather than 'gunmen' as reported by the media.
Taslima has been a vocal critic of radical Islam and she has not been able to return to Bangladesh, her native country that she left in 1994. The author has also received death threats from terror group Al Qaeda.
