Muslims’ ‘Rushdie Opportunity’

By Saif Shahin,

27 January, 2012

From Bradford to Bombay, Muslims who can see through the lame politics of the episode should stand up and, matching the hooligans of 1988, step on to the streets—this time to read the book loudly rather than to burn it. They should print out copies from the Internet, distribute them freely (surely Rushdie won’t mind), and organise public reading sessions. And when the heavens don’t fall, it will be clear that the mullahs were wrong, that no book—howsoever blasphemous—can shake the foundations of a 14 centuries old and a billion-strong faith. -- Saif Shahin,
