The present paper aims at a systematic analysis of all the major characters of the novel to find out how they struggle for their liberation and to overcome the crises created by the advocates of religion, the fundamentalists.
And also how they bound to live with the label of 'the religion' rather than to remain secular and responsible citizen of the nation.
The characters throughout the novel, struggle to overcome the crises created by the fundamentalists and to fight quest for liberation of the self, where the most affected characters are the females who are both a woman and a minority Hindu. Liberation is the act or fact of gaining equal rights or full social or economic opportunities for a particular group.
In other words Liberation is freedom from limits on thought or behaviour. A newly born child has no idea of self. As a child grows older, the idea of self emerges and its formation begins. Our interaction with other people, our experiences, and the meaning we give to them, serve as the basis of our self. The structure of self is modifiable in the light of our own experiences and the experiences we have of other people. The review of Taslima Nasrin's fiction shows that she writes with a motive and the motive is to raise questions against the misrule of patriarchy, religion and its oppression and gender bias.
It mainly deals with the themes related with fundamentalism, feminism, home and homelessness and human relationships. The protagonists of her novels reveal tolerance, love and harmony and each individual has equal right to live on equal footing. Women were trained to be domestic and subordinate, but the women of today want to liberate themselves from the unwritten norms of religion and patriarchy.
In Lajja, Taslima Nasrin expresses atrocities against minority Hindus specially women and their victimization in the name of religion, race, and gender prejudices. She begins the novel with Babri Masjid demolition in Ayodhya as a result of it communal riots took place in Bangladesh. This novel exposes savagery of man on man in the name of religion, where minority people are forced to fight for their safety, security, and liberation, as Duttas-- Sudhamoy, Kironmoyee and their two children Maya and Suranjan minority Hindus in Bangladesh, refuse to leave their homeland and denied to shift to India.
Meantime Muslim murderers abducted her and she had to face inhuman treatment in the form of physical torture and mental agony. Sudhamoy and his son Suranjan both are atheists. Ultimately Suranjan, the protagonist, and other characters of the novel suffer from the bondages of religion but they struggle to search liberation of the self.
Taslima Nasrin's "break through novel, Lajja Shame was published in , and attracted wide attention because of its controversial subject matter….
Initially written as a thin documentary, Lajja grew into a full length novel as the author revised it substantially". Nasrin Aftermath turmoil fallout among the Muslims all over the world and particularly in Bangladesh. Muslim fundamentalists in Bangladesh commited an unimagined crime of brutality and barbarism in the name of religion, on the helpless minority Hindus. On large scale barbaric violence spread over minority Hindus and overnight they became victims of communal riots.
Hooligans broke down Hindu temples and burnt down their shops and home. Neighbour is killing and raping neighbour. Lajja is a response to these riots. Its aim is to highlight among the people of Bangladesh that communalism is on the rise, Hindu minority was badly mistreated and affected.
The secularism and liberation for which they once fought for is at great crises The story of the novel is of a Hindu family where Duttas-Sudhamoy, Kironmoyee, and their children Suranjan and Maya Nilanjana faces the sequence of events with a long list of atrocities committed by Muslims that finally force them out of Bangladesh.
For generation the family lives near Mymensingh, Bangladesh. At the time of partition most of the Hindus leave for India but Sudhamoy refuses to leave and argued: "Why should I leave my homeland and go somewhere else? If I live it will be on this soil, and if I die it will be in the very same place" 7. Taslima Nasrin's character seem to be grounded in reality, with their specific characteristics and ideologies.
All the members of Sudhamoy family want to live like a Bangladeshi, secular and humanist but the "majority bounds them to live as well as to die like a Hindu" Shukla The writer has adequately presented the talks, between father and his son Suranjan, on the issues of secularism and struggle against the crises of religious freedom and expresses the status and psychological condition of minority in their own country Bangladesh.
Sudhamoy is a patriotic like his father Sukumar who loves the land of his birth and its people. He earned a medical degree from Lytton Medical college and starts to work as a physician. He appears to be a revised copy of his father. He is more devoted as an activist to the cause and welfare of Bangladeshi.
He takes active part in the national social and cultural movements. He participated in the language movement in and freedom movement in , that was fought for independence from Pakistan. The independence was earned at the cost of three million Bengali lives. The evils of communalism fundamentalism were defeated.
There was no difference on the basis of religion during independence movement. The only motive was freedom and liberation of the people of Bangladesh. But now is all forgotten, minority Hindus have no significance. Why should he be held responsible for all this? Society does not accept them as a Bangladeshi, they still remains Hindu and Kafir. Sudhamoy attributes riots as that humanity of a human being is perverted when he kills and persecute other human beings, "Roits are not natural calamities, nor disaster, so to speak.
They are simply a perversion of humanity" Sudhamoy is a man of secular ideology who to deny the role of religion in dividing people via categorization in labeling them as well as its role behind the suffering of minority. Sudhamoy interprets the event of rape of minority Hindu girl as: "Hindu or Muslim doesn't matter. If you are weak you will be oppressed by strong. Woman is weak that's why males have suppressed her" Shukla Over the years Sudhamoy and his family have suffered severely as they had refused to leave their country.
He has had to sell his ancestral land at nominal price and move to Dhaka where they lives in a small rented house. Sudhamoy changes his wearing and way of life like Muslim Society as he replaces his 'dhoti' with 'payjama', his 'jal with 'pani'. Sudhamoy's idealism and patriotism led him to loss his social existence. His Muslim friends deserted him one by one because of their differences in religion. But still he remained secular and liberal humanist.
Suranjan too, like his father Sudhamoy is an idealist, socialist, nationalist, secular human being. Watching incidents, after demolition of Babri Masjid, Suranjan says that humans are worse than animals. Animals have no communal differences. He lost his secular idealism and feels helpless in the face of excessive fundamentalism and communalism. Sudhamoy and Suranjan are the mouthpiece of their author, Taslima Nasrin.
Suranjan, the protagonist, and his creator's only religion is humanism. In the whole novel, there is a conflict between humanism and fanatic tribalism. Commonly Hindus hide themselves in the houses of their Muslim friends at the time of riots, but Suranjan hates such type of security. Then why was he seemingly deprived of his rights, and why was his motherland turning her back on him?
Suranjan's family also want to hide themselves in their Muslim friend houses for security.
But Suranjan do not allow it and feels deprived of his rights and there is a search for liberation of the self. Kironmoyee, Sudhamoy's wife is a typical east Bengali oppressed Hindu woman. She is not free to think like her husband and her son Suranjan. She adjusts herself in the hostile environment of Bangladesh. Sudhamoy always opposes Kironmoyee's idea of sending Maya for further study to Calcutta and of marrying her off. He believes in no gender difference but he very well knows, Hindu schools and colleges are not safe.
He believes that there should be equality of opportunity for all people in Bangladesh. But there is discrimination on the name of religion. Therefore, Suranjan fails to get employment and Sudhaymoy himself was not promoted in her job. His friend Madhavchandrapal says " It is not right to expect too many benefits in a Muslim country.
What we are getting is more than enough for us" Suranjan and Parveen loved each other, both wanted to marry.
But Parveen demanded that he should embrace Islam. Surajan denied, he can't accept Islam because he is secular and does not believe in any religion. Further Ratna, a Hindu girl, deserted Suranjan and marries Humau. Maya his sister, also wants to marry a Muslim just to be free from the oppression of the majority Muslims.
All TV Channels and radio programmes start with the verses of Quran. Religion of majority also included in the syllabus of schools and colleges. Kajal Debnath, the president of the minorities association, raises question that extracts from Gita also be read out and to be considered as holy.
But Suranjan is of different opinion, he wants no religion to interfere in the state of affairs: Does it make you happy to hear the Gita being chanted on the radio or television? Will the construction of new temples prove propitious for us?
The twenty-first century is round the corner and we are still trying to make our presence felt through religion, both the society as well as in matters of state. Religion is the opium of the masses" He further says: Let all those brick-built building of worship be smashed to smithereens. Let the other name for Religion be Humanity. Being a secular nationalist make effort for his liberation from communal forces.
Aftermath of Babri Masijd demolition gave chance to fundamentalist to spreadover the communal riots and they succeed in their mission. Further on the demand of fundamentalists Bangladesh declared Islamization in nation. Suranjan loses her identity as a secular nationalist and labelled him as a minority Hindu.
For it Suranjan says, "division of caste and religion is destroying the humanity. A Bengali either a Hindu or a Muslim should be named as Bengali". There is no meaning of survival in Bangladesh as a Hindu and argues with his father to leave the land.
What is it giving you" The protagonist Suranjan struggles in a quest for liberation. But his segregation as minority Hindu, he feels alienated from society and roams in night on roads without fear of his security. Suranjan laughs on his idea that progressive people to use 'Hindu' and 'Muslim' words. Suranjan considered himself as a modern man but now he is regarded as a Hindu.
Taslima Nasrin "illustrates the dilemma of Hindu Bangladeshi, who loves his motherland, but finds it difficult to survive there. Suranjan is no different. However, he comes out of this dilemma quite earlier than his father did.
He realizes that living Bangladesh and infiltrating into India is the only way to them. In the course of riots females are treated very much like worldly property which can be looted easily. In the novel Maya suffers being a woman. Maya like her mother internally feels insecure.
Suranjan, her brother, denies Maya when she asks her family members to hide herself in her Muslim friend's house. She faces her abduction, invaders kidnap her and rape her, that is most tragic incident of the novel. She never returns. In revenge Suranjan violently rapes a Muslim prostitute. The weak turns against the weaker. In a religious patriarchal system women become more easily victims of men.
