Muslim Anger (cont.)

From the Herald Sun: 

MUSLIM anger flared overnight after Britain defended Salman Rushdie’s knighthood, with fresh protests against the novelist and Pakistani traders offering a big reward for his beheading.

Hundreds of demonstrators took to the streets in Indian Kashmir and Pakistan, while Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim nation, criticised the timing of the honour.

The Indian-born Mr Rushdie was given the award on Sunday, 18 years after he was sentenced to death by Iran’s hardline clerical regime for writing what it said was a blasphemous book, The Satanic Verses.

“We will give 10 million rupees ($195,903.83) to anyone who beheads Rushdie,” Islamabad traders’ association leader Ajmal Baluch told around 200 people in one of the Pakistani capital’s main bazaars. The Herald Sun
