Egyptian rulerwho defeated the Crusadersis depicted as a devil or shaitan Even the crusaders had nothing but praise for Saladin Rushdies writings are so offensive that they cannot be quoted in any responsible and respectable magazine or newspaper The result is that not only those who oppose himbut even those who support himhave either not read or understood the context in which Rushdie is creating his magic realism and its not-so-fictitious characters I was one of those few persons who was offered the manuscript of The Satanic Verses before its publication by Penguin India to offer my commentsas the publishers themselves were doubtful of the impact the book would create in India I recommended to the publishers that the book should not come to India as the communal situation at that point (1988) was not conducive to such writings due to the Babri Masjid controversy Emotions were already inflamed and the book could be used by communalists on both sides of the divide to exploit passions and sentiments The book was banned quietly by the governmentavoiding much controversy or protests from Indian Muslims It is the fatwa by the Iranian spiritual leader Ayatollah Khomeini which led to global protest and the larger controversy Even thenthe majority of Muslims opposed the fatwa Indian Muslims at no point supported it However the Western worldwhich was desperately looking for a convenient target after the decline of Soviet Unionpicked up the chant to protect Rushdie and demonise IslamMuslims and their governments They spent millions of dollars not only for the sake of right

from the Satanic Verses controversy and turned the abusive writer into a herocelebrity and millionaire Many British writers and a section of the media at that time alleged that the publishers stoked the fires of anguish and anger to exploit the controversy If Rushdie had written against Jesus Christ what he wrote against the Prophet he would have been prosecuted under the British blasphemy lawwhich was partisan in nature and under it the maximum punishment was the death sentence The law was abandoned by the British parliament in May 2008 Howeverat the time of the controversy in 1988Rushdie took refuge in England to save himself from prosecution by arguing that he had not offended Jesus ChristBible or the basic tenets of Christianity and therefore blasphemy law was not

and write I dont deny the right of people to eulogies Rushdie and regard his writings as the litmus test for the protection of right to speech In Indiabelievers of all faiths have lived together for thousands of years In the thousand years of Muslims presence in India we do not come across any writing abusive of Hindu gods and religious figures by any prominent writer or poet We do read the poems of Ras Khan in Brijbhasha eulogising Lord Krishnaor Abdul Rahim Khankhana translating Ramayana and Mahabharata into Persian A book can well be written on the contribution of Muslim scholars and poets in propagating and appreciating Hindu godsgoddesses and religious books In India there is hardly any example of writings by Hindu or Sikh writers critical of the Prophet or the tenets of Islam I wouldthereforerequest the supporters of Rushdie not to impose their idea of freedom on Indian society If they are for absolute freedom of expressionlet them first fight for it in Western democracies
