Residing in India, controversial Bangladeshi author Taslima Nasreen applied for her visa extension a month ago but is yet to get any response from the authorities.
“I applied for the extension of my Indian resident permit a month ago. No answer from govt. Never happened before,” she posted on her Twitter this afternoon.

Taslima will leave India for the UK to attend a programme of World Humanist Congress at Oxford.
But she feared that she will not be able to return to India if the Indian government does not extend her visa.

Taslima, a physician by degree, was ousted from Bangladesh for her controversial writings with “feminist” and anti-Islamic views and living in exile since 1994.
She is living in India since 2004.
