(1) I do not revere this fellow (2) Personally it would not make any difference to me if Salman or any other Rushdie writes against the religious icons whom I revere. Anyone spiting at the sun gets his own face splashed. It does not make the sun smaller in any manner. (3) My God is not so weak that he needs my help to against such people.

In the name od democracy , soem people will shun out anything. and then we will have moderates covering them. religion is a sacred thing and must be respected. no one has the right to blasphemise any religion for that matter , in the name of democracy.

Lot many people are not aware that Salman rushdie book also contains references to hurt Hindu religious sentiments though few seem to be aware of this: he insults Hindu gods and goddesses. Words like lecherous, drunken and flighty are used with reference to Rama and Sita.
Shame on such writers who abuse freedom of expression to insult Hnidu icons and as matter of principle any religious icons
