The Satanic Verses Affair. (1989)

May 29, 2010

One week after the fatwa on Salman Rushdie was issued in 1989, Hitchens appeared on C-SPAN to discuss The Satanic Verses and freedom of speech. Unfortunately very poor audio. Part 1 of 4 Related video: "Christopher Hitchens on Salman Rushdie's fatwa, BBC, Feb 12" in which he mentions the pipe bomb that didn't go off in Cody's bookstore while he (instead of Salman) was reading from The Satanic Verses.
