Anti-Rushdie demo washout
Heartening news from Blackburn, where a demo to protest Salman Rushdie’s recent knighthood proved a complete washout. Nobody turned up, not even the organiser, Tasaddiq Rehman, of the local Muslim Council of Europe.
According to a commenter on The Citizen story page, the demo had actually been cancelled the week before due to lack of interest, but the organiser failed to inform the press.
