BJP has threatned that the party will not allow British-Indian author Salman Rushdie to visit India. Rushdie was invited to the Jaipur literary festival but the Deoband clerics demanded that he should not be issued a visa. The author, who had earlier won the Booker of Bookers, has won the ire of Muslim clerics due to his controversial views on Islam.
