Description   Half-length portrait shot of Indian writer Salman Rushdie, on RTE television's 'The Late Late Show', in Studio 1 on 15 January 1993. He is sitting behind the studio desk, looking to the left of shot. Rushdie was interviewed by programme presenter Gay Byrne on the show; Rushdie was in Dublin to attend a conference at Trinity College.

Salman Rushdie has written many novels, including the Booker Prize winning 'Midnight's Children' (1980). He is best-known however for 'The Satanic Verses' (1988) which resulted in a fatwa (an Islamic legal pronouncement) promising his execution, being issued against him by Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini. The book was considered by many Muslims to be blasphemous against Islam. The fatwa was reaffirmed by Iran's spiritual leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in 2005.
