British author Salman Rushdie
London, July 02, 2007
British author Salman Rushdie, 60, well known for his novel "The
Satanic Verses," which hurted many Muslims and sparked
death threats that forced him to live in hiding for nine years,
has agreed to divorce Padma Lakshmi, 37, because of her desire to
end their marriage. In 1989, the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini,
Iran's religious leader, called on Muslims to kill Rushdie.
They were married in 2004 and she was his fourth wife and they
had no children.
