And so, Bangladeshi Hindus had to suffer - destruction of temples, riots, murders, rapes, forced conversations, black-mail about leaving the country etc. Nasrin's characters realize that powerful will always oppress the weak — the men will oppress the women, the majority religion people will oppress the minorities, the rich will oppress the poor and so on. The book sometimes reads like fictionalized non-fiction with arguments and information being the key subject of book and story only getting the second seat.
Almost half the book goes to listing every incidence of riot that ever occurred in Bangladesh — naming city and number of people killed, women raped and temples destroyed there.
She also lists at least some incidences of India. These longs lists although effective initially in giving the sheer volume of violence, soon gets a bit boring and even skim-able.
Another problem is that this incidences are being mentally listed by characters in their mind and orally recited to each-other, as if they have crammed all this information like news channels reporters do. But that is the problem, the information is not even being broadcast-ed on television — they just seems to know about incidences occurring in distant cities by intuition. It is a minor thing but it keeps occurring again and again. Similarly Surnajan seems to remember sayings of Jinnah and Kalam okay as well as the constitution along with the many amendments that have gone in it not okay.
It would have made more sense if the omniscient narrator herself had shared the information and arguments directly instead of giving her characters hard-disk memories. Regarding disputed land, I've always believed like Suranjan that all religious places should be destroyed and houses for poor, orphanages, hospitals, schools etc- in short something actually useful should be built in their place, and if you have enough land for that already, sell the land and use the money for charitable purposes but am against destruction of worshipping place of one religion for building that of other.
Although I also had an Uncle who had another attractive, practical and secular idea as to what should be done to disputed land and if you were to extend the idea a little, it will solve all religious problems at once - his idea was to build a pub in that place, and both Hindus and Muslims would drink in the pub in complete communal harmony.

The novel follows the disillusionment of this father and son about their country.
What was born as a secular state has a Department of Religion which has a heavy budget almost all of which goes to promotion of Islam. A very nominal sum is allotted for minority religions — in fact four times that sum goes only to rehabilitation of those who chose to converted to Islam.
The schools have special Islamic classes which makes minority kids feel alienated. There is discrimination in job allocation with almost no Hindus ever making to upper steps of hierarchical ladder. Hindus don't get licences to start business except when it is in a partnership with a Muslim.
There are several other ways in which the Hindus are discriminated, and both were aware of them, but if you are emotionally invested in some belief you hold on to it against much contrary evidence. To be fair, such discrimination is present in some degree in most of Indian subcontinent countries.
The book is set in the back-drop of riots that followed demolition of Babri Masjid. She often gives the death toll of riots in India. And that goes for Bangladeshi spades too - again questioning the communal party who was causing riots and secular ruling party which had maintained silence. Obviously it was Hindus in India and not Bangladesh who were guilty of destroying mosque, but it has always been a tendency of weak minds to carry out their anger not on those who they are angry at, but on those on whom they can afford to be angry at.But after demolition of Babri Masjid and inhuman killings on the streets of Bangladesh, Suronjon's views are changing rapidly.
Dutta's daughter, Maya, is abducted by rioters when they barge in to demolish their house. Balas membalas Rating details. Sudhamoy and his wife, Kiranmoyee, have raised their children, Suranjan and Maya, to think of all religions as equal. When news of the atrocities committed on Hindus flood in and Suranjan has a first-hand experience of how Hindus are regarded as second-class citizens, his faith in his fellow men is swept away.
It is the indictment of a nation - indeed, an entire religion. Nasreen delves into the lives of each of Dutta's and shows how much of trauma they undergo.
The story is told as events unfold the way they are seen through the eyes of Suranjan, Sudhamoy's son.
