Noting that she was a "victim of vote bank politics", Ms Nasreen said that politicians irrespective of their party affiliation have the same outlook about her.
"Politicians are all on the same platform when it comes down to me. I think it's because they think that if they can satisfy the Muslim fundamentalists they will get votes. I believe I am a victim of vote bank politics. This also shows that how weak the democracy is and politicians ask votes by banning a writer," she said.
And that is exactly what is happening in West Bengal, she said and described the opposition to her return by the state government as a "dangerous opposition".
"Even though I am not staying there, she (Ms Banerjee) has not allowed my book 'Nirbasan' to be published. Also, she has stopped the broadcast of a TV serial scripted by me after Muslim fundamentalists objected to it. She is not allowing me to enter the state... This is a dangerous opposition," Ms Nasreen said.
She later returned to India and now lives in New Delhi. Asked whether she would like to contact MsBanerjee and seek help for her return to the city, Ms Nasreen said that she had written to the chief minister but there was no response.
"I wrote to Mamata Banerjee. But there was no response to that... To be honest, I had written an article for a popular Bengali daily hoping that she will notice it and help my cause... Though it was a very positive article on Mamata but nothing changed," she said.
On whether she would write to Ms Banerjee again, the 52-year-old writer said, "No I am not going to write to her again. I do not think she will consider my request. I feel very hopeless because I expected something positive. I think when it comes down to me, she has similar vision like that of the Left leaders."
