'Sir' Salman Rushdie
Rushdie was well known for his book Satanic Verses, which offended Al-Koran and Prophet Mohammad, and therefore Iran Spiritual leader made a decree for his assassination.
This is another insensitivity of west to Muslims. The world knows exactly that Rushdie has offended Islam and created such a huge controversy, and awarding such an honorary title to Rushdie is an indirect offensive decision which will jeopardize the Islam – west relationship. It is still clear in our memory when Danish Cartoon created such a problem and took a lot of lives. For me it is an unwise and unnecessary decision of The British. Keeping the situation in harmony is everyone’s responsibility.
