New Delhi: Known for taking bold stance against bigotry, noted Bangladeshi author Taslima Nasreen on Sunday stirred up a hornet's nest when she said that minority Muslims can commit heinous crimes in India which is hard to even imagine for minority Hindus in Bangladesh.

Through her Twitter handle, Taslima tweeted, “Minority Muslims can do riot, commit violence, rape, even kill a Hindu in India. Minority Hindus can't even imagine doing such things in Bangladesh.”

Further putting forth her views on secularism, she said, "Pro religious minority is not the criteria for being a secular person. You are a secular person means you have nothing to do with religion."

This is not the first time the activist has spoken her mind. In the past too she has been praised and criticised over her bold opinions.
