‘The Satanic Verses’ Author Salman Rushdie is stabbed before making a speech on ‘America being a haven writers in exile’ in upstate New York – 33 years after fatwah was issued by Iran.
Sir Ahmed Salman Rushdie CH FRSL is an Indian-born novelist, whose work, combining magical realism with historical fiction, is primarily concerned with the connections, disruptions, and migrations between Eastern and Western civilizations, with much set on the Indian subcontinent. Wikipedia
Rushdie has previously received death threats for his writing, with his book The Satanic Verses sparking protests in 1988.
He wrote the Satanic Verses, which resulted in a culture war being sparked in 1988 in Britain – with protests taking place in the UK along with book burnings.
Pakistan banned the book, and he was issued a fatwa – a death sentence – by Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini in February 1989.
Khomeini called for the death of Rushdie and his publishers, and also called for Muslims to point him out to those who could kill him if they could not themselves.
