Chautauqua institute, scheduled for Salman Rushdie’s lecture compromises security


UK: In a recent report, the venue scheduled for Salman Rushdie’s lecture, Chautauqua Institute near Buffalo, New York, was advised to tighten the security before the author was invited for the lecture. However , the Institute rejected this advice, thus creating a major loophole in Salman’s security. This later became the reason for the fatal attack on the author. 

Currently, Salman Rushdie is on ventilator support and battling for life. The author is likely to lose one eye and major injuries in his liver and arm.


The Institute had rejected the advice on the grounds that this would have an impact on the culture of the Institute. As of now, the weapon,so used by the attacker to assault Salman has not been confirmed. The 24-year-old accused Hadi Matar, is currently under police custody and is known to be a pro-Islamic supporter.

Salman has always been a target of a fatwa by Iran’s Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in 1989. His book, ‘The Satanic Verses’ made him the target of the fundamentalist forces and had issued a fatwa against the author. 

Earlier reports emerged that Hadi Matar, the main accused of the attack was carrying a fake driving licence registered under the name of a Hizbollah leader allied to killed Iranian general Qassim Soleimani.

Salman has been under covers for more than 30 years of his life. Ever since the book ‘The Satanic Verses’ has been published , the author has been the main target of the Islamic forces as the contents seem much blasphemous to the Muslims.

 Salman has been on ventilator support since the incident at Chautauqua institution
