  Resolved Question: Ramadan: Has anyone read
I am organizing a book club in my neighborhood and now that we finally have enough people we're trying to decide which book we want to read. Someone recommended The Satanic Verses by Salman Rushdie. I have heard of this book and knew that it was controversial but I didn't know that it made the Ayatollah Khomeini issue a fatwa calling Muslims to kill Rushdie :O !! "In the Muslim community, however, the novel caused great controversy for what many Muslims believed were blasphemous references. The book was banned in India, burned in demonstrations in the United Kingdom, and was the subject of a violent riot in Pakistan. In February 1989, the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, Supreme Leader of Iran issued a fatwa calling on all good Muslims to kill or help kill Rushdie and his publishers.[3] Following the fatwa, Rushdie was put under police protection by the British government. As of early 2010 Rushdie has not been physically harmed, but 38 others have been killed in violence against those connected with the book.[4] Individual purchasers of the book have not been harmed." (Wikipedia) So my question is, for the Muslims who have read it---how offensive really did you find this book? Does it say a lot of bad things about Islam that aren't true? I am almost 100% certain that I am the only Muslim in the group and I know for sure that one lady is Christian. So would this book be a good idea for our book club? Would it at least spark some good discussions (about religion perhaps)? Would it be awkward for me lol? I am thinking of vetoing the book but the other member said it's been on her list for a long time and I don't want to just reject it blindly. For those of you who read it, I'd like to know what you think. Thanks! @use your brain - hmm perhaps, but it is one of the ways that i entertain myself. normally, i read FAR more non-fiction than fiction, so reading fiction is like a vacation for me :) fictions are also easier to read so it's more suitable for a book club. i'd just like to get to know some of my neighbors and have a good time :)

  Resolved Question: Muslims, why kill Salman
He is a respected author, a knight in England, a Commandeur in France, has won many literary prizes and was called one of the 50 greatest writers in England since 1945. But there is a fatwa against him with a bounty for his death from Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and Ayatollah Ali Khamenei of Iran. Several people associated with translating or publishing his book "The Satanic Verses" were attacked, seriously injured, and even killed. Mustafa Mahmoud Mazeh accidentally blew himself up building a bomb to kill Rushdie and Islamic World Movement of Martyrs' Commemoration built a monument to Mazeh. James Phillips of the Heritage Foundation testified before the United States Congress that a March 1989 explosion in Britain was a Hezbollah attempt to assassinate Rushdie which failed when a bomb exploded prematurely, killing a Hezbollah activist in London. When the fatwa was first issued, many were killed in riots it caused. Why are Muslims trying to kill this man? What exactly is his crime? Why are some trying to avoid answering the question by pretending it is old news? In 2005, Khomeini's fatwā was reaffirmed by Iran's spiritual leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in a message to Muslim pilgrims making the annual pilgrimage to Mecca. Do you forget your leaders teachings in only four years?
