Short Biography of Salman Rushdie

 Q:   Ask a Question about Short Biography of Salman Rushdie       
Ahmed Salman Rushdie (born in 1947) is a British writer, born in India of a Muslim family.

His novel The Satanic Verses in 1988 (the title refers to verses deleted from the Koran) offended many Muslims with alleged blasphemy. In 1989 the Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran called for Rushdie and his publishers to be killed.

Rushdie was born in Bornbay and later lived in Pakistan before moving to the UK. His earlier novels in the magic-realist style include Midnight's Children in 1981, which deals with India from the date of independence and won the Booker Prize, and Shame in 1983, set in an imaginary parallel of Pakistan.

The furore caused by The Satanic Verses led to the withdrawal of British diplomats from Iran. In India and elsewhere, people were killed in demonstrations against the book and Rushdie was forced to go into hiding.
