Salman Rushdie will be in the Eason’s book store this Saturday signing copies of his ‘The Satanic Verses’ book we can reveal.
Buttercrane Shopping Centre has confirmed that they have employed Special Forces security to protect the famous author after The Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini; the Supreme Leader of Iran issued a Fatwa (Religious War) over his controversial book.
But Mr Rushdie told Newry Spud:
“I’m looking forward to coming to Newry. I am confident that the Derrybeg ISIS won’t make an attempt on my life. I will also be in Madden’s pub later that day as I was told it has the nicest pint of Guinness in Newry.”
