Crusades and which means the lowest creature from the depth of hell In factthe most offensive parts of the book are the abusive words in Hindi (gaali)freely used against Mahound by Gabriel Farishtawho is a Bollywood film star turned into an angel A brothel is staffed by prostitutes who take the names of the Prophets wiveswith Hazrat Omarthe close companionas the brothel keeper Saladinthe great Egyptian rulerwho defeated the Crusadersis depicted as a devil or shaitan Even the crusaders had nothing but praise for Saladin Rushdies writings are so offensive that they cannot be quoted in any responsible and respectable magazine or newspaper The result is that not only those who oppose himbut even those who support himhave either not read or understood the context in which Rushdie is creating his magic realism and its not-so-fictitious characters I was one of those few persons who was offered the manuscript of The Satanic Verses before its publication by Penguin India to offer my commentsas the publishers themselves were doubtful of the impact the book would create in India I recommended to the publishers that the book should not come to India as the communal situation at that point (1988) was not conducive to such writings due to the Babri Masjid controversy Emotions were already inflamed and the book could be used by communalists on both sides of the divide to exploit passions and sentiments The book was banned quietly by the governmentavoiding much controversy or protests from Indian Muslims It is the fatwa by the Iranian spiritual leader Ayatollah Khomeini which led to global protest and the larger controversy Even thenthe majority of Muslims opposed the fatwa Indian Muslims at no point supported it However the Western worldwhich was desperately looking for a convenient target after the decline of Soviet Unionpicked up the chant to protect Rushdie and demonise IslamMuslims and their governments They spent millions of dollars not only for the sake of right to freedom of expression but to use this issue to garner political support to isolate Iran and justify their Islamophobia Is it a coincidence that The Satanic Verses unleashed the anti-Islam propagandawhich has led to many unjustified warskilling of millions of innocent people and demonising a whole religion and its 1500 million believers around the world Salman Rushdie and his publishers took no time in apologising to Indira Gandhi and editing the offensive portions from Midnights Children At that point he and his publishers did not take the moral high ground of absoluteunrestricted right to creative freedom Is it because her lawyers had filed a libel case in British courts and they might have had to pay a huge amount for this offence The same people made huge amount of money from the Satanic Verses controversy and turned the abusive writer into a herocelebrity and millionaire Many British writers and a section of the media at that time alleged that the publishers stoked the fires of anguish and anger to exploit the controversy If Rushdie had written against Jesus Christ what he wrote against the Prophet he would have been prosecuted under the British blasphemy lawwhich was partisan in nature and under it the maximum punishment was the death sentence The law was abandoned by the British parliament in May 2008 Howeverat the time of the controversy in 1988Rushdie took refuge in England to save himself from prosecution by arguing that he had not offended Jesus ChristBible or the basic tenets of Christianity and therefore blasphemy law was not applicable to him Denying or questioning the Holocaust is a crime in most European democracies Many countries have broader laws that criminalise genocide denial Michael Whine argues that Holocaust denial can inspire violence Many writers such as Raul HilbergRichard J EvansNoam ChomskyPeter Singer and Christopher Hitchens have regarded these laws as limiting the freedom to investigateresearch and write I dont deny the right of people to eulogies Rushdie and regard his writings as the litmus test for the protection of right to speech In Indiabelievers of all faiths have lived together for thousands of years In the thousand years of Muslims presence in India we do not come across any writing abusive of Hindu gods and religious figures by any prominent writer or poet We do read the poems of Ras Khan in Brijbhasha eulogising Lord Krishnaor Abdul Rahim Khankhana translating Ramayana and Mahabharata into Persian A book can well be written on the contribution of Muslim scholars and poets in propagating and appreciating Hindu godsgoddesses and religious books In India there is hardly any example of writings by Hindu or Sikh writers critical of the Prophet or the tenets of Islam I wouldthereforerequest the supporters of Rushdie not to impose their idea of freedom on Indian society If they are for absolute freedom of expressionlet them first fight for it in Western democracies
