The fatwa Salman's story ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Salman Rushdie, author of the novel The Satanic Verses, tells for the first time the inside story of how it felt to be condemned to death by the Ayatollah Khomeini in 1989 and to spend the next decade in hiding. An intimate and involving documentary that charts in full, for the first time, the consequences of a worldwide controversy that forced author Salman Rushdie into hiding for over a decade. Following publication of The Satanic Verses in 1988, Rushdie was accused of blasphemy by conservative Muslims. As the situation escalated, on February 14, 1989, Iran's then-leader Ayatollah Khomeini issued a fatwa calling on Muslims to kill the book's author and publishers. This is the inside story of how it felt to be at the epicenter of an international crisis as Rushdie recalls the day-to-day drama of living under a death sentence, terrified for the safety of his child, and hearing horrific news of his publishers and translators being attacked and killed. The film features unprecedented access to key figures, including Rushdie's closest family and friends: Ian McEwan, Hanif Kureishi, Paul Auster, William Nygaard, Arthur Hibbert, and Andrew Wylie."--Container
