Protesting Rushdie's The Satanic Verses in London
January 1989, London. There were numerous demonstrations around the world by Muslims in the late 80s against the publication of Salman Rushdie's 'The Satanic Verses' . Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the Supreme Leader of Iran, issued a fatwa against Rushdie, calling for his death, despite never having read the book. Picture found on Flickr.
