The feminist thrust of Nasrin in view of the issues pertaining to lajjz, the problems faced by the marginalized Hindus in Bangladesh, and the notions of nation and religion have been intricately woven together in Lajja.
The Duttas – Sudhamoy, Kironmoyee, and their two children, Suranjan and Maya – have lived in Bangladesh all their lives.
The most striking feature of Lajja is Suronjon’s internal struggle of what he believes and what he is witnessing. Kar sevaks had brought down a year-old mosque. From last two days I’ve been devouring this book, satiating my curiosity as to why Taslima Nasrin, the writer, was shunned, a Fatwa was charted out for her and she was driven out of tasljma homeland.

Lajja is a narration in third person where the author alternates, for the larger part of the book, between the points of views of Sudhamoy and Suronjon. Furthermore, the assumption that a woman has no identity of her own and is dependent on the men around her, be it her father, brother, husband or son, has been amply exemplified in the tasli,a, Sudhamoye, for instance, praises his wife Kironmoyee and daughter Maya by telling Maya: During riots, all the toxins in people’s minds are released.
