A Satanic Affair: Salman Rushdie and the Rage of Islam Summary


This is a full account of the Rushdie affair pointing out how the crisis has focused attention on the cultural divide between the West and Muslim countries and secular and religious cultures. It also reveals the way in which, in a society unversed in the way of scriptural criticism and debate, the book was seen not just as an act of blasphemy, but as a fundamental attack on Islamic identity. Malise also wrote "Islam in the world".
