Prime Minister Justin Trudeau condemned the “cowardly attack” on novelist Salman Rushdie, calling it “a strike on freedom of expression.”

In a tweet Saturday afternoon, the prime minister wrote, “The cowardly attack on Salman Rushdie is a strike on the freedom of expression that our world relies on.”

“No one should be threatened or harmed on the basis of what they have written. I’m wishing him a speedy recovery.”

Rushdie, 75, suffered a damaged liver, severed nerves in an arm and an eye, and was on a ventilator and unable to speak after he was attacked on stage before a lecture in New York state.
