Iran condemns Rushdie knighthood


They say that this person is the most hated of the muslims, because he insulted Islam

I wonder why

Frankly,

Salman Rushdie would not be nearly so "famous" if the Ayatollah hadn't issued the Fatwa to have him killed.  He would have faded into being a obsurity as a 'jaded' ex-member of a faith.

I see literature tearing apart my faith everyday.  What makes Rushdie "special" is the calls for assasination. 

No offense abuzaid, I do feel that "SOME" (not all) Muslims do get offended too easily.  Or I should say, react poorly to being offended.  One should be offended by any derogatory statements, but fatwas calling for assasination and burning effigies is extreme.  What good comes out of rioting? Nothing. 

Rushdie himself has done nothing deserving of Knighthood.  There are many more accomplished artists and authors deserving of that honor.  The only reason he got the recognition is the overreaction of others to his babbling.

I disagree with you. This is because of salman rushdie we saw the real face of western civilization. I also disagree with the fatwa, rather khumeini should have planned to kill him directly without issuing the fatwa.

Offence come from respect, and west have lost the sense of respect in the flow freedom. You should not try to judge us by your stu**d standard. Something you may find bad about us, are something we are proud of.

 Insulting Islam in any respect is greatest work anyone could do to get knighthood. This is what queen had conveyed to us. This may be your opinion, but queens have her own standard to judeg people.

Your link is no good from my end!
I cant get to the contents so I can't help you -- keep wondering as please!
Iranian condemnation is just a cheap propaganda ploy against the Muslim territories under neo colonial sl. And that part is OK. The condemnation mean squat after all these years gone by.
 But you know just like there are some no nos across the board and this was the one the Brits forgot. If the Ayatullah really meant what he said we wouldn't be discussing this right now. The Diablo face would be with real master the Devil himself than with earthly devils.
He should have declared the mission accomplished and he would be the true hero.He did make some cheap points. But he was  what he was a great propagandist. What was the use of the Fatwa when the subject was beyond his jurisdiction and could not be executed!
This old bag of a queen has lost her mind to give the finger to some of her subjects while she forgot in her old age about what happened to their pet Raj Pal at the height of their Empire in the subcontinent? Go read & then we will talk about it!
