Knighted by the Queen

A professed atheist named Salman Rushdie.
It is not the first time honours from the West have met with vitriol and violence.His name continues to be controversial from satanic verses to Knighthood.

In a battle between flaming fundamentalists and mute moderates, who do you think is going to win?

The very first bounty on Rushdie's head was worth $US2 million. It rose to $US 2.5 million.
It's high time to ban hypocrisy under the banner of Islam.
