More Rushdie

Another interesting juxtaposition (from this article):

"[Pakistan's] Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Tasnim Aslam said Rushdie's knighthood would hamper interfaith understanding..."

This is probably true; but then this probably isn't going to help "interfaith understanding" either:

"The West is accusing Muslims of extremism and terrorism. If someone exploded a bomb on his body, he would be right to do so unless the British government apologizes and withdraws the 'sir' title," [Mohammed Ijaz ul-Haq, Pakistan's religious affairs minister] said."
