Salman Rushdie  : Salman Rushdie is a British Indian novelist and essayist.

He was born in Bombay (British India) into a Muslim family of Kashmiri descent. His second novel, Midnight's Children, won the Booker Prize in 1981. It was also deemed to be "the best novel of all winners" on two separate occasions.

His fourth novel, The Satanic Verses, was the subject of a major controversy. It provoked protests from Muslims in several countries.
