Writer Salman Rushdie is off the ventilator and is being held accountable after his attack | Currently

British-Indian writer Salman Rushdie has been taken off a ventilator and can be easily communicated with. His literary agent, Andrew Wiley, confirms this to the news agency APone day after the writer was stabbed on stage in the United States.

Satan’s Verses-The author was stabbed Friday during a lecture in Chautauqua, New York. according to CNN It included three stab wounds to his neck, four stab wounds to his stomach, one to his chest, one to his eye and a leg wound.

Willey previously stated that 75-year-old Rushdie is likely to lose his right eye. The nerves in his arm were also severely damaged.

His literary agent did not reveal what would happen to Rushdie.

A 24-year-old man was arrested immediately after the stabbing. He is accused of assault and attempted murder. This was reported by the Chautauqua Public Prosecution Service on Saturday. The suspect claims to be innocent.

The police and the Public Prosecution Office are still investigating the perpetrator’s motives. The attack is suspected to be related to a fatwa (religious-religious advice in Islam) issued by Iranian Ayatollah Khomeini in the late 1980s. In the fatwa, Khomeini demanded that Rushdie be killed. The reason for this was his book Satan’s verses. This led to numerous death threats and several assassination attempts on the writer. The Japanese translator of the book was also killed.
