My compliments to Sir Salman Rushdie

Reader comment on item: Salman Rushdie and British Backbone

Submitted by Jaisingh Thakur (India), Jul 11, 2007 at 08:02

The British authorities deserve to be complimented for having honoured one of the finest novelists of our time ,Mr.Salman Rushdie, of " The Midnight's Children " fame. I strongly denounce all those who are hell bent on attributing motives to this simple act of bestowing honour on a highly meritorious writer. To me, it is neither to spite the Muslims nor to rub salt in their already festering wounds.

To all such persons like Mr.Ijaz ul haq, I would merely ask them to take a look around and see the sordid goings-on in their own countries with a mind as objective and analytical as that of another celebrated writer-in fact one of my favourites- Mr. Daniel Pipes, and it will become crystal clear to him as to who is insulting Muslims and Islam.
