It has been announced that writer Salman Rushdie (75), who was stabbed while giving a speech at a literary event in New York, started to speak again.
It was also reported that Rushdie, who was being treated at the hospital with serious injuries, no longer needed a respirator. Writer friend Aatish Taseer said in the message he shared about Rushdie’s condition, “He is not connected to a respirator, he is talking and joking.” Rushdie’s manager, Andrew Wylie, also confirmed this information, but did not provide details.
REJECTED THE CHARGES
Meanwhile, 24-year-old Hadi Matar, who was caught at the scene and brought to court after stabbing Selman Rushdie 10 times, denied the accusations of “attempted murder”. The prosecutor, on the other hand, argued in the indictment that it was a planned murder attempt. As a matter of fact, the judge in the case pointed out that Hadi Matar had come to the place where Salman Rushdie Was Going To Give A Speech With A Fake ID The Day Before And Made A Discovery. Matar, who appeared before the judge in a black and white overalls, a medical mask and handcuffs, was denied bail.
75-year-old Indian-British writer Salman Rushdie was stabbed at a literary event in Chautauqua on Friday. While It Was Announced That Rushdie’s Condition Was Critical After The Attack , it was reported that the attacker, 24-year-old Hadi Matar, was sympathetic to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Army but had no organic connection with them. The author of the 1988 book ‘The Satanic Verses’ drew a strong reaction from radical Islamist circles and had to hide for years. Iran had issued a death fatwa against Rushdie in 1989 because of the book, which had a great reaction in the Islamic world.
