As a story per se, it is about the riots that happen in Bangladesh as lauja aftermath of the Babri Masjid demolition and how a Hindu family pays a heavy price because its men happen to be too idealistic.
By and large, it is at the cost of the family that a woman is conditioned to subdue her desires and fit into the socio-cultural framework.

There are two types of authors who write poorly about their nation. Dan terjadilah migrasi besar-besaran umat hindu ke negara yang mayoritas hindu seperti India dan Sri Langka.
Lajja: Shame | Taslima Nasrin | Book Review
Their ancestral seat in the village, once thriving and prosperous, has been usurped by their Muslim neighbours, forcing them to seek lsjja in a rented house in Dhaka. Such that, the female member, however, is tyrannized and is expected to behave according to an established patriarchal norm.
Potensi konflik antar agama kemudian mengakar, mengancam, dan di perparah dengan adanya jurang antara miskin dan kaya.
Maya went restlessly from room nasrih room. In Lajja too, this aspect comes to light as there are women framed as good or bad by the patriarchal setup. Furthermore, in LajjaNasrin shows how women are doubly jeopardized—on the basis of sex and on the basis of nationality which is identical with religion. To put these facts in a book demands a lot of courage. Peristiwa inilah yang diangkat menjadi cerita atslima novel Lajja oleh Taslima Nasrin, seorang feminis muslim asal Banglades.

Excerpt | Lajja – Livemint
nasrim To Suranjan, Bangladesh is his motherland; he was born here, got educated here, and made friends here. Kedamaian itu hanya berlangsung 7 tahun saja. I read the book cover to cover, hoping that nqsrin would be some redeeming factor, but what little story there was appeared to be merely an excuse to loosely link pages and pages of wrongs.
I salute the courage of Taslima for telling the truth in best way. At every step, Kironmoyee had to sacrifice and behave according to the imposed authority of the ruling class in Bangladesh.
