Hollywood was paying attention to Salman Rushdie’s ordeal. Having a fatwa put out against you is possibly lethal, but certainly bad for business. It is not complicated.
I havent heard anything about him in a long time.
I wonder if he is still in hiding.
There is no statute of limitations on a Fatwa, so I suppose he is.
He had another book published after the Satanic Verses but I dont remember anything after that book.
