    I will be frank, I bought his Midnight Children and I got so confused with the first few pages that the book remains unread and new.

    I have never wasted any more money on him.

    However, is it right to ban a writer?

    Ban a book, if that upsets people, but ban a writer?

    To look at the usual arguments that will be pandered.

    Hussein's painting was not liked by some.

    But who banned him?

    None.

    He quit India because he did not want to face the court cases!

    The GOI was not right in preventing Rushdie from visiting the Jaipur fest.

    These liberals cannot think beyond their noses

    Our laws are clear

    NO author no painter howsoever high and mighty they may be can be allowed to publish ,paint or print some thing
    which is derogatory to religion

    This Rushdie will come and go but then it will be a free for all

    There will be n number of books cartoons articles paintings ridiculing various religions

    And then there will be violence

    So it means that publicity hungry people like Rushdie get Z category protection for 3-4 days and then
    common people should suffer indefinitely

    GOOD question .

    Sickular media wants complete freedom for everybody including Rushdie and Hussain

    And They expect people to " not to resort to violence "

    Sorry the real world does not work like that

    The banishing of both Rushdie and Hussain are perfectly all right

    It is necessary to be practical in such religious matters and not go by just cliches such as
    freedom of expression

    If some body has the right to OFFEND then others have the right to HIT back

    Blasphemers must understand the consequences of their actions and not expect protection on the basis of free speech. I look forward to the time when Free Will Baptists start beheading people. :-D

    Both are Morons. we should neither have banned M.F.Hussain, nor Rushdie.... What they create is their right and if someone dont like it, then he/she can keep their bum shut and not read it( or see it)....

    Demanding ban and enforcing by blackmail are two different things.

    Hindus can demand anything, but the Govt decides. There was no ban, he was given protection to live normally nor was MF not allowed to live in India. He left on his own accord because he did not want to face the Courts.

    Rushdie was not allowed into the country nor allowed even video conferencing. The Govt chickened out! His book was banned, while MF's paintings were not!

    Hey dont offend the sensibilities of Muslims. Its wrong in a "secular"( :rofl: ) "free"( :rofl: ) country called India ( :pound: ). Dont mention the IM or SIMI as they offend the sensibilities. And ban everythin as per Islamic law since this is a secular country( :rofl: ).

    See how the above para sounds thats exactly what is happening in India right now. Of course our (pseudo)Secularists ( :rofl: :rofl: ) will have something else to say

    True when India is called psuedo-secular, an object by a person offending a particular faith, and he is left free and his objects free for sale. Now another person does the same thing, and neither he nor his object isn't allowed in the country.


    Must be good for these guys

    This is also an evil Hindu conspiracy!! The evil, barbaric Hindus and their Nazi-loving Buddhist sidekicks are behind this to defame innocent secularists! I know it.

    Secularists are so predictable; wherever they scamper through, they leave a trail of hypocrisy and a stench of cowardice. :D

    Its OK for secularists if MF Hussain draws Hindu gods in unmentionable positions but its not OK for Salman Rushdie writes a book Satanic Verses.

    Are the secularists hypocrites or closet communalists or plain anti-Hindus??.

    Everyday they get keep exposed but they always get the cover behind the paid Media and pseudo-secular parties.
