Srs opinion? I'm not informed enough to have a strong opinion either way. In such situations I'd tend to go with the default position of "You don't have to read it if you don't want to."
And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW
Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
I think Rushdie is a prick. Not because of his book. I don't care if he writes a 100 other books like it because I won't read them. And he shouldn't be persecuted for writing whatever he wants, because that's wrong and against freedom of speech. As Joe pointed out you don't have to read his books. I think he is a prick because he labels Pakistan as a terrorist nation.
I have no issues with Imran not wanting to associate himself with Rushdie (or anyone else for that matter). Thatís his right. It's also the right way to go about protesting Rushdie, instead of that whole fatwa thing that was issued from that moron from Iran. Rushdieís tweet about Imran attending his 1982 lecture and being secular is rather silly. Everyone knows that Imran is a born again Muslim and heís not the same person today that he was back then. Neither is Rushdie!
Also, being secular doesnít mean you should automatically like or support Rushdie. Heís full of himself, as usual.
I have always thought this Fatwa on Rushdie to be a bit of an exaggeration by the man himself. He claims he is scared for his life but I always see him on TV doing some interview or another. He clearly is an attention seeker. No wonder he wrote the book to get publicity and cause controversy.
Of course, the over the top reaction of Muslims only helped to publicize the book and make him into a worldwide superstar. As has been stated here, if you donít like the book, donít read it and ignore it. Simple.
Salman Rushdie = Veena Malik
both should have been ignored but weren't
Yeh i agree with you@84 and yes i would like to give it a hearty F**k you to that S***h***e goverment.
