TEHRAN (92 News) – State-run Iranian media outlets have raised $600,000 to add to the bounty for the killing of British author Salman Rushdie.
This is biggest increase in the bounty since its inception 27 years ago. The latest hike reportedly brings the total award close to $4 million.
The announcement coincides with the anniversary of the fatwa issued the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic, the agency said. Ayatollah Khomeini, the First Supreme Leader of Iran, issued the fatwa against Rushdie on charges of blasphemy for his novel The Satanic Verses on February 15, 1989.
The Ayatollah called for the death of the book's author along with anyone "involved in its publication".
