Rushdie cancels India visit over Jaipur Lit Fest row
NewsX | January 20 , 2012
Booker prize winner Salman Rushdie has cancelled his India visit, the Jaipur Lit fest organisers announced on Friday. The organisers said Rusdie had informed them that there was threat to his life. The controversial writer was almost forced to cancel his visit after Deoband declared last week they would openly protest his visit at the Jaipur Lit Fest.
