It was 20 years ago... 'British Islam after Rushdie'

Anshuman A Mondal, Prospect Magazine, British Islam after Rushdie, April 09 "As I found out in a journey across Britain, the central conflict in Muslim communities is not between secular and Islamic values, but between the generations of the Muslim families who live here." Also available as a pdf

Also in Prospect:

Hanif Kureishi, Kureishi on the Rushdie Affair, April 09 "Kenan Malik talks to Hanif Kureishi about the Rushdie fatwa and why no one would write such a book today."

That interview is taken from Kenan Malik's "From Fatwa to Jihad: The Rushdie Affair and its Legacy" (Atlantic), which sounds like an interesting book (out this month).
