Repeated criticism repeatedly offends the offended

Another pesky female is fatwad.

While one prominent cleric said Nasreen had a month to leave, another said she had 15 days. Anyone who killed her would get a cash reward of 100,000 rupees ($2,400), they said.

"Anyone who executes the warrant will also be given additional rewards," said Nurur Rehman Barkati, a cleric of one of the biggest mosques in Kolkata [India].

The head with the price-tag belongs to Bangladeshi author, Taslima Nasreen, who is a repeat offender of the greatly offended and who most grossly offended in 1994 with a novel called Shame about riots between Muslims and Hindus.
