Salman Rushdie is an author, novelist and currently incognito.
He was born in Bombay (Mumbai) in 1947.
It appears that Rushdie may be able to move about without fear soon,

On the other hand, his latest book The Moor's
Last Sigh was banned in India for most of last year, it is still
unavailable in Bombay (Mumbai).
