Fiction After The Fatwa

by Madelena Gonzalez, Fiction After The Fatwa Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Fiction After The Fatwa books, Fiction after the Fatwa: Salman Rushdie and the Charm of Catastrophe proposes for the first time an examination of what Rushdie has achieved as a writer since the fourteenth of February 1989, the date of the fatwa. This study argues that his constant questioning of fictional form and the language used to articulate it have opened up new opportunities and further possibilities for writing in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Through close readings and intensive textual analysis, arranged chronologically, Fiction after the Fatwa provides a thought-provoking reflection on the writer's achievements over the last thirteen years. Aimed principally at academics and students, but also of interest to the general reader, it engages with the specific nature of the post-fatwa fiction as it moves from the fairy-tale world of Haroun and the Sea of Stories to the heartbreaking post-realism of Fury.

From Fatwa To Jihad

by Kenan Malik, From Fatwa To Jihad Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download From Fatwa To Jihad books, The # 1 international bestseller A Finalist for the George Orwell Book Prize “It would be absurd to think that a book can cause riots,” Salman Rushdie asserted just months before the publication of his novel The Satanic Verses. But that’s exactly what eventually happened. In England, protests started just months after the book’s publication, with Muslim protestors, mainly from immigrant backgrounds, coming by the thousands from the outer suburbs of London and from England’s old industrial centers—places like Bradford, Bolton, and Macclesfield—to denounce Rushdie’s novel as blasphemous and to burn it. In February of 1988, the protests spread to Pakistan, where riots broke out, killing five. That same month, Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini called for Rushdie’s assassination, and for the killing of anyone involved with the book’s publication. It was this frightening chain of events, Kenan Malik argues in his enlightened personal and political account of the period, that transformed the relationship between Islam and the West: From then on, Islam was a domestic issue for residents of Europe and the United States, a matter of terror and geopolitics that was no longer geographically constrained to the Middle East and South Asia. Malik investigates the communities from which the anti-Rushdie activists emerged, showing the subtleties of immigrant life in 1980s England. He depicts the growth of the anti-racist and Asian youth movements, and shows how young Britons went from supporting these progressive movements to embracing a conservative strain of Islam. Malik also controversially tackles England’s peculiar strain of “multiculturalism,” arguing that policymakers there failed to integrate Muslim immigrants, which many politicians saw as incompatible with their own “Western values.” It was a perception that led many to appeal to Muslims not as citizens, but as people whose primary loyalty was to their faith and who could be engaged only by their “community leaders.” It was a also policy that encouraged Muslims to view themselves as semi-detached citizens—and that inevitably played into the hands of radical Islamists. Twenty years later, the questions raised by the Rushdie affair—Islam’s relationship to the West, the meaning of multiculturalism, the limits of tolerance in a liberal society—have become the defining issues of our time.

Sacred Cows

by Fay Weldon, Sacred Cows Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Sacred Cows books, In 1989, after the Ayatollah Khomeini declared a fatwa against Salman Rushdie for writing The Satanic Verses, Fay Weldon published Sacred Cows, a pamphlet critical of the fundamentalist interpretation of the Koran. Weldon’s pamphlet received a lot of attention on publication – mostly criticism of her perceived ‘Islamophobia’ – but Weldon set out to enforce the notion that no religion should have the right to issue threats and intimidation; no religion should hinder free expression. In Sacred Cows, Weldon criticizes all aspects of British society – Murdoch and the Sun’s page 3 girls; white, liberal complacence; problems with education and the NHS – and argues that the affront to Muslim people in Britain was not caused by publication of The Satanic Verses itself but rather by the ‘awfulness of the society we have allowed to grow up around us’. The Satanic Verses is remedy, according to Weldon, to a fractured, ailing society. Publishing literature like this proves that our society ‘may yet be well and our brave new God of individual conscience may yet arise’. Originally published by Chatto & Windus as part of the 'Chatto Counterblasts' strand, this ebook edition is reissued with a new introduction by the author, as part of the Brain Shots series: the pre-eminent source for high quality, short-form digital non-fiction.

Die einzigen Überlebenden dieses Terroranschlags sind Gibril Farishta und Saladin Chamcha, zwei indische Schauspieler, die buchstäblich vom Himmel fallen und wie durch ein Wunder unversehrt bleiben. Doch nach dem Absturz gehen seltsame Dinge mit ihnen vor: Der Muslim Gibril zeigt immer mehr Ähnlichkeit mit dem Erzengel Gabriel, während sich Saladin, der stets seine Herkunft verleugnete, zu einem Abbild des Teufels entwickelt. Doch das ist erst der Beginn einer überwältigenden Odysee zwischen Gut und Böse, zwischen Fantasie und Realität.

Fatwa

by Mehdi Mozaffari, Fatwa Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Fatwa books, The Islamic term "fatwa" became known in the West after Ayatollah Khomeini's death sentence in 1989 on Salman Rushdie, the author of 'The Satanic Verses'. Mehdi Mozaffari reviews the history of the fatwa from its origins and its evolution to the present day. He looks at the general use of fatwa in relation to Islamic rules and traces the evolution of shi'ite Islam from a pacifist and quietist movement into a militant force. In comparing Shi'a violence before and after the Islamic revolution, it can be seen that Rushdie was not the only writer to receive a fatwa. It also emerges from this study that the revolutionary violence was also effected by the economic interests of a social group, the Bazar -- a controversial point of view in contrast to the widely held belief that it was a religious revolution only.

The Rushdie Affair

by Daniel Pipes, The Rushdie Affair Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Rushdie Affair books, The publication in 1988 of Salman Rushdie's novel The Satanic Verses triggered a furor that pitted much of the Islamic world against the West over issues of blasphemy and freedom of expression. The controversy soon took on the aspect of a confrontation of civilizations, provoking powerful emotions on a global level. It involved censorship, protests, riots, a break in diplomatic relations, culminating in the notorious Iranian edict calling for the death of the novelist. In The Rushdie Affair, Daniel Pipes explains why the publication of The Satanic Verses became a cataclysmic event with far-reaching political and social consequences.Pipes looks at the Rushdie affair in both its political and cultural aspects and shows in considerable detail what the fundamentalists perceived as so offensive in The Satanic Verses as against what Rushdie's novel actually said. Pipes explains how the book created a new crisis between Iran and the West at the time--disrupting international diplomacy, billions of dollars in trade, and prospects for the release of Western hostages in Lebanon.Pipes maps out the long-term implications of the crisis. If the Ayatollah so easily intimidated the West, can others do the same? Can millions of fundamentalist Muslims now living in the United States and Europe possibly be assimilated into a culture so alien to them? Insightful and brilliantly written, this volume provides a full understanding of one of the most significant events in recent years. Koenraad Elst's postscript reviews the enduring impact of the Rushdie affair.

Joseph Anton

by Salman Rushdie, Joseph Anton Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Joseph Anton books, Vom Tod bedroht und vogelfrei Am Valentinstag, dem 14. Februar 1989, erhält Salman Rushdie den Anruf einer BBC-Reporterin und erfährt, dass der Ayatollah Khomeini ihn »zum Tode verurteilt« hat. Zum ersten Mal hört er das Wort »Fatwa«. Sein Vergehen? Einen Roman mit dem Titel »Die satanischen Verse« geschrieben zu haben, dem vorgeworfen wird, sich »gegen den Islam, den Propheten und den Koran« zu richten. So beginnt die außergewöhnliche Geschichte eines Schriftstellers, der gezwungen wird, unterzutauchen und in ständiger Begleitung einer bewaffneten Polizeieskorte von Aufenthaltsort zu Aufenthaltsort zu ziehen. Als die Polizei ihn auffordert, sich einen Decknamen zuzulegen, wählt er eine Kombination aus den Vornamen seiner Lieblingsschriftsteller Conrad und Tschechow – Joseph Anton. Was heißt es für einen Schriftsteller und seine Familie, über neun Jahre lang mit einer Morddrohung zu leben? Wie gelingt es ihm, weiter zu schreiben? Wie beginnt und endet für ihn die Liebe? Wie fest hat die Verzweiflung sein Denken und Handeln im Griff, was lässt ihn straucheln, und wie lernt er, Widerstand zu leisten? Zum ersten Mal erzählt Salman Rushdie seine beeindruckende Geschichte; es ist die Geschichte eines der entscheidenden Kämpfe unserer Zeit: der Kampf um die Meinungsfreiheit. Rushdie erzählt vom teils bitteren, teils komischen Leben unter bewaffnetem Polizeischutz und von den engen Beziehungen, die er zu seinen Beschützern knüpfte; von seinem Ringen um Unterstützung und Verständnis bei Regierungen, Geheimdienstchefs, Verlegern, Journalisten und Schriftstellerkollegen; und davon, wie er seine Freiheit wiedererlangte. Ein einzigartig offenes, aufrichtiges Buch: fesselnd, provokant, bewegend und lebenswichtig. Denn das, was Salman Rushdie durchlebt hat, ist der erste Akt eines Dramas, das sich tagtäglich irgendwo auf dieser Welt vollzieht.
