Salman Rushdie’s birthday is apparently a sign for Islamic fundamentalists to once again bring up death threats. These death threats first happened 20 years ago when a fatwa was placed on Rushdie for his book “The Satanic Verses”.
Can’t believe the whole thing is still alive in people’s memories even after 20 years!
For all the folks who want to ban his book, Rushdie has just this to say:
It is very, very easy not to be offended by a book. You just have to shut it.
Way to go Rushdie, and hoping there’s tons more fantastic story-telling from you!
