Murderous attack on Salman Rushdie, the author of the blasphemous book in America

Washington: An unknown person attacked Salman Rushdie, the author of the obscene book The Stink Verses, in New York.

According to the foreign news agency ‘Associated’, Salman Rushdie was attacked when he was going to give a lecture in a hall located in West New York. The video of the incident also came to light.

In the video, a man stormed the Chautauqua Institution stage and showered punches on Salman Rushdie. Later, administrative officials rescued Salman Rasheed from the assailant.

New York police said that Salman Rushdie has a ‘knife wound on the neck’ but it is too early to give a satisfactory answer about his condition.

It should be noted that Salman Rushdie’s profane book ‘The Stink Verses’ has been banned in Iran since 1988. Late Iranian leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini issued a fatwa calling for Salman Rushdie’s death.

There is also a reward of more than 3 million dollars for the killer of Salman Rushdie. The Iranian government has long expressed indifference to Ayatollah Khomeini’s statement, but anti-Salman Rushdie sentiments persist.
