Re: Book to be pulped. Free speech curbed??

A while back, Salman Rushdie was forced to cancel his appearance at the Jaipur Literary Festival because some Muslim group found something objectionable. Now some Hindu group finds something objectionable. There's always somebody somewhere who is offended by alternate view-points.

I hadn't heard of this book until now, but I don't support book-banning and preventing authors from speaking at literary festivals. Don't read if you don't want to. Why ruin the fun for the rest of us?
