"I know something about the subject. In 1989, when I was 19, I piously, even gleefully, participated in a rally in Kenya to burn Rushdie’s book The Satanic Verses. I had never read it." You were 19. You were not 8. For me, enough said. Why should I read anything else. So instead of calling for the burning of Rushi's book, you now call for burning of other books.
