On August 9, 2007, Bangladeshi writer Tasleema (Taslima) Nasreen was attacked by a group of angry Muslims at press conference for her latest book in Hyperabad:
Bangladeshi author was attacked by the Muslim hardliner MLAs of political party Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen in Hyderabad.
The MLAs, angry over Taslima’s alleged remarks on Islam and Prophet Mohammad, attacked her at a press conference where the author was to release the Telugu translation of her latest book Shodh.
The enraged activists hurled abuses at the author and even threw pieces of furniture at her. Nasreen was shielded by journalists and some senior officials, who also got injured in the process.
Human Rights activist Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi forwarded these photos from the attack on Taslima:
Taslima was forced to exit the press conference with the help of Indian police.

Today Muslim hardliners threatened Taslima to leave the country or face death!
The Tribune reported:
Activists of a Muslim group today threatened to “eliminate” Bangladeshi writer Tasleema Nasreen from India for allegedly “defaming” Islam if the Centre failed to expel her from the country.
“If the government does not take any action against her, she will be eliminated. The situation is such that we have to say this,” member of the Majlis Bachao Tehriq, Hyderabad, Majidulla Khan Farhad said addressing a rally.
Accusing Tasleema of insulting Islam in her writings, Imam of Tipu Sultan mosque Syed Barkati said “insult to the Prophet is an insult to God. When (painter) Maqbul Fida Husain painted Hindu goddess in the nude, there was a strong resentment. The same sentiment is at work here.”
Imam Barkati demanded immediate banishment of the writer from the country as “otherwise, we will intensify our campaign and the situation will explode.”
