Death threats prompt Rushdie to cancel India visit


"Authorities warn author of 'Satanic Verses' that he is potential target of underworld assassins following threats of protests from Muslim groups.

JAIPUR - Salman Rushdie will not attend a literature festival in India after authorities warned the controversial author he was a potential target of assassins at the event, following threats of protests from Muslim groups at his planned appearance."

That stuff like this still goes on in 2012 speaks for itself.
