Not that you, or indeed he, needs reminding, but in 1988, Rushdie's fourth novel, The Satanic Verses, placed him in the eye of a global storm when the novel was interpreted as being blasphemous to Islam.
A fatwa was issued in 1989 by Iran's then-supreme leader, Ayatollah Khomeini that put a price on Rushdie's head while also condemning anyone involved in the book's publication.On her relationship with novelist Salman Rushdie, whom she married in 2004 and divorced in 2007: WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA - MARCH 05: Padma Lakshmi and writer Salman Rushdie arrive at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party at Mortons on March 5, 2006 in West Hollywood, California.
