In this age of narrow-mindedness, we need storytellers like Salman Rushdie more than ever

Within an hour it was world news. Salman Rushdie was stabbed to death in upstate New York. He was flown to Erie, Pennsylvania, where he was initially in critical condition. The message cut like another blade. It tore under the skin, exposing wounds that were thought to have been at least forgotten if not healed.

24-year-old New Jersey man Hadi Matar has been charged with attempted second-degree murder. He left Rushdie with life-changing injuries and stunned the world by reminding us that nothing is ever really done, especially wanting to stuff us into the small spaces of our hatred.
