245: Episode 245 - ‘The Satanic Verses’: Fatwas & Faux Pas

5/12/2022
If the contents of a 546-page book can get one man murdered, two more seriously injured and its author forced into hiding for nine years, you can be confident of its subject: religion. But despite its reputation, ‘The Satanic Verses’ isn’t a page-by-page deconstruction of Islam. It’s a work of fiction; one that prompted the leader of Iran to call for a worldwide manhunt of anyone involved in its publication. So how did one man’s literary skill get another man literally...

When police rushed to respond to a triple murder in one of South Africa’s most exclusive gated communities, it seemed as though Henri van Breda had had a lucky escape.

All understandable, when three of your loved ones have been hacked to death by an axe-wielding maniac. But as police dug further into the...
