Literary festival organizers hope Rushdie will attend
Organizers of an Indian literary festival said Tuesday they hope Salman Rushdie will attend, despite calls by Muslim clerics to ban the British-Indian author from the event.
Mr. Rushdie’s planned appearance at the Jaipur Literary Festival has sparked an outcry among some Muslims who consider his 1988 book “The Satanic Verses” blasphemous.
Last week, Darul Uloom seminary leader Maulana Abdul Qasim Nomani urged the government to bar Mr. Rushdie from the five-day event that starts Friday. The 150-year-old seminary preaches an austere form of Islam that has inspired millions of Muslims, including the Taliban.
Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot of Rajasthan, where Jaipur is based, said protesters’ feelings should not be ignored and that Mr. Rushdie should stay away due to security concerns.
The 64-year-old author has attended the annual festival previously without incident. He has said he does not need permission or a visa to enter or travel within India.
Mr. Rushdie, who won the 1981 Booker Prize for his novel “Midnight’s Children,” spent years in hiding after Iranian leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini urged that he be killed for blasphemy because of “The Satanic Verses.” The book also was banned in India.
