Prague won't block 'Satanic Verses' translation
Czech Foreign Minister Lubomír Zaorálek told the Czech News Agency today that the Czech Republic will not interfere in the publication of Salman Rushdie's Satanic Verses over which the Czech ambassador to Saudi Arabia has been summoned to the Saudi Foreign Ministry.
The information about the ambassador having been summoned was reported by the Reuters agency quoting the Saudi Arab press agency SPA today.
The conservative Muslim world considers the book an offence to Islam because Muslims relate the story of the fictitious prophet to the founder of Islam, Muhammad.
