Salman Rushdie’s statement on the horrifying attack on Charlie Hebdo, from PEN:
Religion, a mediaeval form of unreason, when combined with modern weaponry becomes a real threat to our freedoms. This religious totalitarianism has caused a deadly mutation in the heart of Islam and we see the tragic consequences in Paris today. I stand with Charlie Hebdo, as we all must, to defend the art of satire, which has always been a force for liberty and against tyranny, dishonesty and stupidity. “Respect for religion” has become a code phrase meaning “fear of religion.” Religions, like all other ideas, deserve criticism, satire, and, yes, our fearless disrespect.
Rushdie has been living in fear of a similar attack since a fatwa was issued against him by a Shi’ite cleric, for writing The Satanic Verses.
