Finally, the sisters allow him to leave the boundaries of Nishapur — but only if he promises never to feel shame. Omar makes this promise and goes on to live a debauched life, which, nonetheless, does not prevent him from attaining great acclaim as an immunologist. Omar makes friends with Iskander Harappa. Isky enters politics on his fortieth birthday; his rival is Raza Hyder. Raza has a storied past of his own, and with his wife, Bilquis, has two daughters, Sufiya and Naveed.
Over time, the beast, which seems to be a separate entity from Sufiya, grows more powerful within her, gaining the ability to take her body over and wreak havoc. One on occasion, while possessed by the beast, Sufiya bites the heads off two hundred hundred turkeys, killing them all and falling ill herself as a result — with shame. Attempting to treat her for the illness of shame, Omar falls in love with her.
He is forbidden to have sex with her; instead, he sates himself with her ayah nursemaid , Shahbanou. This realization brings the beast to life in a more violent way than before, and in a frenzy, Sufiya runs out into the night and rapes and decapitates four boys.

It is the indictment of a nation - indeed, an entire religion. Nasrin calls Shame the "testament" of a writer determined, despite the danger she faces, to speak out in favor of Islamic reform, religious tolerance, and freedom of expression, and against Muslim extremism and other forms of fanaticism.
From a literary profile as a poet in the late s, she gained global attention by the beginning of s owing to her essays and novels with feminist views and criticism of what she characterizes as all misogynistic religions including Islam. Enter email address. Welcome to Christianbook.
