TIME needs your questions for India-born Booker author Salman Rushdie. Send your questions alongwith hometown and you may end up in a future issue of the magazine. Winner of numerous literary awards, Rushdie was born into a Muslim family that witnessed the partition and claims he is a non-Muslim Muslim, a British Asian and a non-European European. He got more ‘famous’ when his satiric work The Satanic Verses (1988), earned him a fatwa from Iran.
I have done my bit, submitting 10 questions to him. You may submit your questions for Rushdie now. The interview would be published in the upcoming issue of TIME magazine.
