Salman Rushdie Controversies

The most controversial work by Salman Rushdie, “The Satanic Verses,” was published in 1988. This was followed by “Haroun and the Sea of Stories” in 1990. The latter work was written while Rushdie was under a fatwa, and it explores the dangers of story-telling and offers an allegorical defense of the power of stories over silence.

When the leader of Iran, Ayatollah Khomeni, issued a fatwa calling for the author Salman Rushdie’s death for insulting the prophet, things got worse.

While Rushdie was, fortunately, able to escape physical harm, the book’s Japanese translator, Hitoshi Igarashi, was stabbed to death in 1991, the Italian translator, Ettore Capriolo, was seriously wounded in a stabbing incident the same year and the Norwegian publisher William Nygaard was shot three times in an attempted assassination in 1993, but he survived. The book is still banned in most countries.

In Padma Lakshmi’s memoir, published in 2016, she claimed that her ex-husband Salman Rushdie was concerned only with physical pleasures and could never be an “understandable husband.” She also added that in one incident, Rushdie even referred to her as a “bad investment.”
