Fatwa - 3. It’s Not Easy to Burn a Book

3. It’s Not Easy to Burn a Book

Fatwa

British Muslims protest against the publication of The Satanic Verses. Fatwa is a ten-part series telling the hidden story of the 1989 fatwa issued against Salman Rushdie - the forces which led to the death sentence and the recent attack on him - and the consequences for all of us. The series covers a 20-year period from 1979 to 1999 and explores race relations in Britain, identity, free speech and the connection between the fatwa and contemporary violent jihad. It was originally broadcast in 2019. This episode contains strong discriminatory language.

Producer: Chloe Hadjimatheou Presenters: Chloe Hadjimatheou and Mobeen Azhar Editor: Richard Knight
