New Delhi: Fiery Bengali writer and feminist Taslima Nasreen has praised Raj Kumar Hirani's film 'pk' but has also tweeted: "If PK was made in B'desh or Pakistan, producer, director & actor Aamir Khan would have been killed or in prison by now. Good that it's in India!"
The Bengali writer, who is staying in self-exile in Delhi since last several years, also tweeted: "That credit goes to the 60 years of secular governance. However, gharwapsi hints to a bleak future for a Hindu Rashtra."
She further tweeted: "We created a society where illiterate mullahs decide which books we shouldn't read & uncultured babas decide which films we should not watch."
Taslima also tweeted: "It is a pro-Hindu movie. A religion must move towards rationality which is the message of PM.....religion is irrationality. Irrationality can't move toward rationality. Only ppl can move from irrationality toward rationality."
She wrote: "PK is not anti-Hindu movie. It's to encourage rational thinking. ..Freedom of expression and thought is every human's fundamental right and cannot be controlled by unscrupulous people."
Commenting on the picture showing Aamir Khan nude with a taperecorder covering his genitals, Taslim Nasreen tweeted: "OMG! Case against Aamir Khan for obscenity? I wish so much to see him without that tape recorder!"
On the VHP and Bajrang Dal demanding ban on the movie 'pk', Taslima said in a recent interview: "The more you ban or boycott, the more you create curiosity among people. Curious people will find out any whichever means to watch objectionable scenes.
"It might even so happen that people would watch only the objectionable scenes, not the whole cinema. As a banned and hugely censored writer, I know that many readers read only the objectionable parts of my books, not the whole texts."
The reclusive Bengali writer is still getting threats from across the border.
On Dec 23, she tweeted: "I got 3 ph calls from Pakistan yesterday. Unknown ppl called & talked nonsense. Terrorists? Save me please if you can 923073831368,923074834632".
