She also said that people should know that by throwing her out of any state would not get anybody Muslim votes.
She also said that people were arrested for drawing cartoons of Mamata Banerjee.
"Human rights have been violated in West Bengal," Taslima said.
"We can't compromise on any terrorist activity. If any terrorist is there, the Government will take action, but commoners should not suffer," she said.
Earlier in the day, the Centre filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court on deportation of Rohingya Muslims from India and said that the illegal influx of the refugees will adversely affect the fundamental rights of Indian citizens and cause a threat to the national security.
The apex court had told the government to submit the affidavit after a plea was filed before it against the deportation of the illegal immigrants to Myanmar.
Expressing her views over the issue, Mamata had earlier took to Twitter stating that "We do support the @UN appeal to help the Rohingya people. We believe that all commoners are not terrorists. We are really concerned."
Last month, the West Bengal government had announced that it would distribute identity cards issued by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to Rohingya children lodged in juvenile justice homes across the state after UNHCR officials in India wrote to the West Bengal government.
