Watch as the Salman Rushdie stabbing video becomes viral online.
Concerning the Salman Rushdie Stabbed controversy?
Salman Rushdie, a well-known author, had an injury on Friday before giving a speech in western New York, according to state police. Rushdie has long faced death threats from zealots.
Approximately 70 miles south of Buffalo, at the Chautauqua Institution, a guy charged the stage at roughly 11 a.m. and attacked Rushdie and a questioner, according to a statement from New York State Police Maj. Eugene J. Staniszewski.
Rushdie was flown by helicopter to a neighboring emergency center with a clearly visible neck injury. It reads, “His condition is unknown at this time.
The person being questioned, according to the authorities, has a slight head injury.
A state police assigned to the investigation soon apprehended the culprit. Nobody screamed his name.
NBC News has reached out to his representatives for comment. Salman Rushdie was assaulted and stabbed live on stage.
Rushdie, who is regarded as the most lauded author of the modern period, is recognized for his startling mix of mystical authenticity with a provable moral story.
In books like “12 PM’s Children” and the infamous “The Satanic Verses,” Rushdie astounded readers with his exuberant exposition style and astonished pundits with his contemporary desire.
He was awarded the coveted Booker Prize for his 1981 book, “12 PM’s Children.”
In the latter part of the 1980s, when “The Satanic Verses,” which featured a character in the likeness of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, was released, it shocked a sizable portion of the Muslim world, sparking fights and prompting Iran’s Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini to issue a fatwa, or declaration, requiring his death.
The blaze made Rushdie spend a significant amount of time cowering under a rock.
