share medium Salman Rushdie interview   Danish state TV

Note: This interview was done the day before violence broke out over “Innocence of Muslims” –  (~ 11 mio. views.. ), – and it’s focus is on Rushdies new book.
– Have patience with the interviewing Danish journalist, who is not exactly “top-dollar”..

Rushdie:

“There is no rule in litterature which says you have to be polite”..

“If you are standing up for important principles, you don’t defend those principles by compromise or appeasement. I learned that the hard way ” !
