    One, ever since the 1989 fatwa issued by Ayatollah Khomeini ordering Rushdie’s death for blaspheming against Islam in The Satanic Verses, Rushdie has warned us repeatedly of the dangers of tiptoeing around religion, of exempting it from skeptical inquiry, critique, or satire, out of fear of offending believers.

    Secondly, Rushdie stands as a model of immense courage, for refusing to live in fear of the threat of the fatwa, and, by all accounts, going about his life with a relentless zest.

    I heard Rushdie speak again in 2008 in San Francisco, when he was interviewed on KQED’s Forum, by Michael Krasny, a professor at San Francisco State University.

Indian liberals who are expressing s...

    Congress leaders may want to remember that it was the Rajiv Gandhi government that had banned The Satanic Verses, a decision that prompted similar reactionsacross the world and inflamed the controversy. And the Indian political class may want to show a little bit of courage in speaking up against the blasphemy law, which it conveniently keeps on th...
