Salman Rushdie stabbed onstage at New York state event​



Many Muslims accused Rushdie of blasphemy or unbelief and in 1989 the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini of Iran issued a fatwa ordering Muslims to kill Rushdie. Numerous killings, attempted killings, and bombings resulted in response to the novel. The Satanic Verses,

He made millions from his book, which I don't care about, but got himself Police protection in the UK for years at taxpayer expense without making a contribution.
Personally, I thought his follow up book "Buddha, the fat bastard" was a better effort.

Yes, I always wondered why he got police protection when he left the U.K. to live in the U.S. Yet another waste of tax payers money. Let's hope he's got plenty of medical insurance - oh wait e mo' perhaps when he's fit enough to fly he will return to the U.K. !!!

Why should we be dictated to by some religious fanatic who wasn't even born when the book was written?
Free speech is priceles, small minded bullies are just that, small minded, ignorant, and full of their own sh£t.

It’s an attempted murder, no ifs, no buts.
Life awaits him......in prison.

BBC are reporting that Salman will likely lose one eye; the nerves in his arm were severed; and his liver was stabbed and damaged. Currently he is on a ventilator and cannot speak.

Whatever your leanings and inclinations, this is an horrific attack. No reason for the attack has been made public. But maybe it has to do with the fact that there is still a price on his head due to the fatwa issued by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini when Rushdie's book was first published.

If the best they can do is hide behind a screen there's not much to worry about.

A fatwa can only be recalled by the person that instigated it, and if that person has died it cannot be cancelled. Khomeini died some years ago so the fatwa remains 'live'..

I dont wish Rushdie ill, but remember, people are still murdered regularly for their religion/ sexuality and skin colour in our own dear country, it's just, they aren't celebrities :(
