What hypocrisy, Taj Ashaheed or are you joking? Rushdie is alive due to 24/7 protection by policemen and he is in a secret location in fear of Islamic murderers. After all some of his translators and supporters, who were available to public access, have been murdered by Islamic assasins. What is the lie about 'last I looked Rushdie' ? Where did you look Rushdie? He is not available to the public and lives a secret life.
