The Continued Controversy of Salman Rushdie

Salman Rushdie, most well-known for the controversy surrounding his book The Satanic Verses, still continues to create small uproars in some of the places he chooses to travel to. Most recently, he was invited to participate in the Jaipur Literature Festival in India as one of the star authors, then, according to this article convinced to withdraw from the festival. It appears that controversy will follow this brilliant author wherever he goes. It seems unfortunate that he will not be present at the festival as I’m sure he was the reason why many people looked forward to attending in the first place. Hopefully next time it will result differently! :)
