Nobel winners call on Modi to restore critic’s citizenship

New Delhi: Nobel prize winners Margaret Atwood, Orhan Pamuk and John Coetzee led more than 250 literary and journalist luminaries who called on Thursday on India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi to revoke an order stripping writer Aatish Taseer of his “overseas citizenship”.
Salman Rushdie and top Indian writer Amitav Ghosh said Taseer “appears to have been targeted for an extremely personal form of retaliation” for his criticism of the Indian government.
Taseer, born in Britain but raised in India, lost his Overseas Citizenship of India last week. (AFP)
