About our Salman Rushdie news

Latest news on Salman Rushdie, a British Indian novelist and essayist. His second novel, Midnight's Children, won the Booker Prize in 1981 and was deemed to be "unlike anything else" by the judges. His fourth novel, The Satanic Verses, was the subject of a major controversy, with some Muslims accusing him of blasphemy. The book was banned in several countries and Rushdie was given police protection. In 1989, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the Supreme Leader of Iran, issued a fatwa calling for his assassination.

Since 2000, Rushdie has lived in the US. On Friday, 12 August 2022, Rushdie was attacked on stage at an event in New York state, as he was about to give a lecture at the Chautauqua Institution.
