I know a few people who love to get banned books, i never actually seek them out.
I usually find out a book is banned after i have read it oo khalast.
I bought satanic verses a few years ago, but never got around to reading it. I plan on doing so soon. I want to know what all the fuss is about surrounding this book.
Another book that iv heard so much about is The jewel of madina. Which is a fictional story based on sayda aisha the prophets wife.
According to University of Texas Professor of history and Middle Eastern Studies,Denis spellberg," the book makes fun of Muslims and their history. the novel is a very ugly, stupid piece of work. I don't have a problem with historical fiction. I do have a problem with the deliberate misinterpretation of history. You can't play with a sacred history and turn it into soft core pornography."
I don't know what the content of the book is, but im going to read it soon and tell you.
There is a recipe for success. i see it a lot these days.
Take a sacred subject, offend a large group of people, and tadaaa!
you got a best seller on your hands.
Did any of you guys read the book ?
