New Delhi: Responding to a twitterati whether she would eat pork if given a chance, celebrated Bangladeshi author Taslima Nasreen replied in an affirmative “Yes”.

The pork question popped up after she expressed her disgust at the news of four students being beaten in Rajasthan for eating beef.

In a tweet she had said: “4 students were beaten up for eating beef in Rajasthan! I am so scared! I feel like I will be killed someday for eating beef!”

Reacting to her remark, a twitterati asked her, “If you are so interested in non-vegetarian, then try pork once!”

Her reply was “Yes, I eat pork.”

In Muslim cultures, eating pork is prohibited.
