Salman Rushdie Calls Out Random House For Censoring Book On Mohammed and Ayish



Rushdie and his smokin' hot babe Padma Lakshmi





Salman Rushdie, author of the controversial Satanic Verses, said that he was disappointed in his publisher Random House for pulling an upcoming novel about the Prophet Mohammed.

“This is censorship by fear and it sets a very bad precedent indeed," said Rushdie. The Jewel of Medina is the debut novel from Spokane, Washington's Sherry Jones. It's a first-person narrative of Aisha, one of Mohammed's wives, and includes a mild account of the first time the two have sex.

Random House pulled the book when an early release of the novel began to elicit fears that their could be a similar violent response as the ones after the publication of Danish cartoons of Muhammad in 2005.



So, here's my question, if this book had to be banned for its depiction of sex between Mohammed and his nine year-old child bride Ayish, than should not the Koran and the Hadith also have to be banned?

Soooooooooo......., does everyone who receives a fatwa have to suffer a "Padma" too?

"F@ck the Paedo-Prophet, and his filthy whore Aisha! The Ko-Ran ain't worthy of emergency @ss-wipe!"

(OK, Pastorius...you can tell 'em where to deliver my Padma!)

Isn't she incredible?

And somehow, those nipples show through on every dress she ever wears.

All women should have nipples like that. Or, is it the dresses?

Indeed.

Yet the reported reason why the book was censored is this one:
...said that it «disturbs us that we feel we cannot publish it right now.» He said that after sending out advance copies of the novel, the company received «from credible and unrelated sources, cautionary advice not only that the publication of this book might be offensive to some in the Muslim community, but also that it could incite acts of violence by a small, radical segment.»

Anonymous #1,
I understand that.

But, presumably, the Muslims who would be rioting would be rioting because the book depicts Mohammed in a negative light, right?

So, since the Koran depicts Mohammed in the same negative light, should not Muslims also be rioting about that?

Or, are they hypocrites?
