The government of Islamic Republic of Iran offers you 600,000 US dollars for you kill Salman Rushdie! Not mere 600 or 6000, but 600,000 dollars!!! No lie, no BS, and no scam. It is really the official offer from the Iranian Government!

There is no such as moderate Islam, any deviation from the doctrine is punishable by death. Wake up people. These bearded men are pure power hungry and you know what power does. You need to educate yourself and understanding the dangers of political Islam...

The Quran says "When you start recitation of the Quran seek refuge into almighty Allah from mischief of the cursed Satan" and he still claims that the Quran comprises Satanic Verses. What a hypocrite person! Allah will do to him justice in this world and/or in the day of judgement. But I personally wish that Allah guides Selman Rushdie to the straight path before he passes away.

Sorry but no matter whether Rushdie ‘went too far’ or not, it is despicable that he faced death threats and an attempt on his life over it. Offence does not and will never entitle you to kill or attempt to kill somebody.

In Bradford 1989 so-called Moderate Muslims started chanting kill Rushdie slit his throat burn him alive, Even Cat Stevens who submitted to this cults terror and pagan Ideology wanted to burn Rushdie alive. You see these barbarians think that because the BBC and the media are so frightened to publicly ridicule and condemn this Antichristian demonology incase they end up being bombed or stabbed to death just walking to work, Like Charlie Hebdo, Tommy Robinson when incarcerated by the British appeasing establishment knows full well that an Englishman who criticises this Moon-gods cult can be murdered in British jails by the members of this cult. When are you ignorant fools going to realize that there is no such a thing or person in Islams cult that is called moderate? Islam whether you like it or lump it? Is a 7th-century pagan ideology who's so-called messenger of their god killed murdered raped and tortured men women and children? and are still doing the same in England today. Oxford-Rotherham-Huddersfield-Luton-London-Manchester-Liverpool-Rochdale-Normanton-Wakefield and everywhere else. Google British Muslim extremists, British schools Islamic rules, Gordon Browns pressure on all English police authorities to ignore the Hue & Cry of young white school girls being raped tortured and some murdered by so-called moderate Muslims. Britain has become a Pariah State repressive of its citizen's human rights and more concerned about the human rights of British born Pakistani Paedophiles and Islamists of a pagan cult, And Labours main voters

He is a mean fellow. Instead of improving his writing, he used the religion to get popular. He insulted and hurt millions of people just to get money and popularity, or notoriety I'd say. It's ludicrous how Hindus are supporting him.

make fun of Muslims all you want no one would care. Muslims are insulted in Hollywood all the time. Equate insulting prophet Muhammad pbuh with Jesus pbuh. I’m sure Christians would be offended and rightly so. I don’t believe in responding with violence to nonviolent actions but people have a right to be offended.

As a Brit and a Muslim, I'm no fan of curbs on free speech. In some cases such as incitement to violence I happen to begrudgingly concede that I can see the argument. I think satirical attacks on Islam are actually the direct incitements to violence. Riots, boycotts, are all par for the course. The West has appeared to make concessions for the Jews with respect to Holocaust denial. I think that the level economic damage this thing causes ought to be considered, but if someone is really hell-bent on going for it, what can you do?

You criticize any other religion and at most you will get harsh criticisms from hardliners. You criticise the religion of 'peace', however, and the next moment you see yourself trying to run from death.
