Shame on the ignorant demonstrators, shame on the hatemongers, but, above anything else, shame on those, in the West, who do not stand by our values.

The chairman of the all-party group on Pakistan, the Conservative MP Stewart Jackson, also attacked the decision to knight Rushdie. "We do not need a situation where we are gratuitously offending our allies in the fight against terror," he told the ePolitix website. "I think the prime minister's office should think very carefully about that decision."Well, SHAME ON YOU, MR JACKSON!
