Since the visa of exiled Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen [Images], who has been barred from coming out in public, was given by the Centre, it was up to her to decide whether she would stay in India, West Bengal Speaker H A Halim said on Friday.

She should also abide by the country's rules and regulations since she is staying in India on a visa, he said.

"Nasreen is staying in India on a visa provided by the Indian government. She should abide by the laws of the country," Halim said at a function in Kolkata.

The speaker also said that she should not do not anything which would hurt the religious sentiments of the people.
