The fourth book by British-Indian author Salman Rushdie is titled The Satanic Verses. The biography of the Islamic prophet Muhammad served as inspiration for the book, which was first published in September 1988. Rushdie used magical realism and based his characters on real-world events and individuals, just like in his earlier works. The Satanic Verses, a collection of Quranic verses that mention three paganic Meccan goddesses named Allt, Al-Uzza, and Mant, are referenced in the title. Al-Waqidi and al-Tabari, two historians, say that the part of the story about the “satanic verses” was based on their accounts.
Salman Rushdie, a British Indian author, wrote The Satanic Verses, an epic magic realist novel that quickly rose to prominence after its 1988 release as one of the most divisive works in recent memory. Many Muslims viewed its imaginative and satirical use of Islam as blasphemous, and in 1989, Iran’s Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini issued a fatwa against Rushdie, ordering Muslims to kill not only the author but also his editors and publishers. Following violent protests in Pakistan, the book was banned in many nations, and copies were set on fire in Britain, where numerous bookstores were bombed.
