Controversy• Salman Rushdie was criticized for portraying Islam and Prophet Muhammad in a bad light in his 1988 novel- The Satanic Verses. Things turned worse when the leader of Iran Ayatollah Khomeni issued a fatwa calling for Rushdie’s death for insulting the Prophet.

While Rushdie was fortunate enough to escape physical harm, the book's Japanese translator, Hitoshi Igarashi, was stabbed to death in 1991, the Italian translator, Ettore Capriolo, was seriously wounded in a stabbing incident the same year and the Norwegian publisher William Nygaard was shot three times in an attempted assassination in 1993 but survived. Even to this day, the book remains banned in most of the nations.


• Padma Lakshmi, Rushdie's ex-wife, wrote and published a memoir in 2016. In the book, she claimed that Rushdie was concerned with only physical pleasures and could never be an "understandable husband." She added that once Rushdie even referred to her as a 'bad investment.'
