RUSHDIE CANNOT CHEAT THE MUSLIM WORLD
At the beginning of December 1990, a rumour spread that Salman Rushdie, The Author of "The Satanic Verses" had repented. Following that, the Media has published the statement by the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamini to the effect that the death order against the British Author Salman Rushdie was still in force despite his repentance. "As the Imam The Late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini said, the Islamic decree about the Author of The Satanic Verses remains unchanged even if he repents and becomes the most pious man of his time," Tehran Radio quoted him as saying in a statement released by his office.
