Salmon Rushdie

Salman Rushdie is an older author who won some awards over the years for his works, such as the satanic verses and shame

But what strikes me as odd is the fact he has spent over a year underground because he was targeted for his satanic verses book.

I have heard of the guy before, which bodes extremely well, as I don't usually know who these people are.

But I think any time you have to go into hiding, something is wrong. I do believe it was because someone in Iran issued a fatwah on his head because they thought he made Muhammed look bad or something.
