Salman Rushdie Gives First Interview Since Being Repeatedly Stabbed At Literary Event In US Last Year

Salman Rushdie has given his first interview since being repeatedly stabbed at a literary event in the US, last year.

The author lost his sight in one eye, and has told the New Yorker his “overwhelming feeling” towards the support he’s received is “gratitude.”

He has faced years of death threats since the publication of his 1988 novel, The Satanic Verses, which some Muslims say is blasphemous.
