New Delhi: Hindu fundamentalists are becoming dangerous in India and the country needs to separate religion from the state, famed Bangladeshi author Taslima Nasrin has said.

In a series of tweets from a conference in the Estonian capital of Tallinn, the author also said that India needs one law for all.

She also highlighted the problems faced by women and said that “India has become one of the most dangerous countries for women.”

She also said that “secular feminist movement is starting in India but has a lot to do”.

Noting that “feminism is not the property of the west,” she said that “many women oppose me when I support women's rights. They think God decides best.”

“Feminism has long opposed religion. Religion is patriarchal through and through,” she added.
