Author Salman Rushdie, Focus Of Iranian Fatwa, Attacked Onstage In New York.

Rushdie is the author of The Satanic Verses, a book banned in Iran as many Muslims consider it blasphemous. A year after it was published in 1988, Iran’s leader at the time, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, issued a fatwa calling for Rushdie’s death.

Author Salman Rushdie has been attacked onstage at an event in New York as he was set to deliver a lecture.

A man stormed the stage and began punching or stabbing Rushdie as he was being introduced. Reports showed a video clip of medics rushing to tend to Rushdie on the floor. His condition was not immediately known.

The attack occurred on August 12 at the Chautauqua Institution in Chautauqua, New York.

Rushdie is the author of The Satanic Verses, a book banned in Iran as many Muslims consider it to be blasphemous. A year after it was published in 1988, Iran’s leader at the time, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, issued a fatwa calling for Rushdie’s death.

Iran’s government has distanced itself from Khomeini’s decree, but anti-Rushdie sentiment has lingered. In 2012, a semiofficial Iranian religious foundation raised the bounty for Rushdie from $2.8 million to $3.3 million.

Rushdie, who lived for years in hiding, dismissed that threat at the time, saying there was no evidence of people being interested in the reward. He later published a memoir about the fatwa.

The Swedish institution that awards the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2016 denounced the fatwa, saying reward money for Rushdie's death was a "flagrant” breach of international law.
