The Rushdie affair and Muslim Jewish relations — Sunday 23 June at 19:00

The 1988 publication of Salman Rushdie's novel "The Satanic Verses" was followed by major protests by Muslims in the UK and many foreign countries, and by Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran issuing a fatwa (Arabic for an Islamic legal opinion) that Rushdie should be killed.

Robert Kanter will be presenting to the Forum via Zoom about the impact of the Rushdie affair on Muslim Jewish Relations in the UK. His talk will include the role of the Chief Rabbi Lord Jakobovits and the impact of his actions and responses. There will be plenty of time for audience questions.

Robert is Lecturer in History Education Lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University. He is writing a PhD thesis on "A History of Jewish-Muslim relations in Britain, c1900-1990", and has presented two earlier aspects of his research to the Forum. See our pages below:

Anglo-Jewry’s interactions with converts to Islam in the period 1900-1920
