Taslima to recieve honory citizenshp from France

The exiled Bangladeshi novelist Taslima Nasreen, who was forced to leave Bangladesh on blasphemy charges levelled at her by Muslim fundamentalist factions in the country (following her controversial novel Lajja in 1994) will now be made an honorary citizen of France. Bertrand Delanoe, the Mayor of Paris, praised her courage and referred to her as a "woman of exemplary courage and a freedom fighter". Delanoe submitted the resolution to the city council proclaiming her as an honory citizen and an approval was expected.
