Lajja

A savage indictment of religious extremism, Lajja was banned in Bangladesh but became a bestseller in the rest of the world. This brand-new translation marks the twentieth anniversary of this controversial novel.

The Dattas have lived in Bangladesh all their lives. Despite being members of a small Hindu community, they refuse to leave their country.  And then, on 6 December 1992, the Babri Masjid at Ayodhya is demolished by a mob of Hindu fundamentalists. The nightmare inevitably arrives at the Dattas’ doorstep, and their world begins to fall apart.
