In 1988, the publication of The Satanic Verses - the controversial book by Salman Rushdie - sparked a culture war in Britain. Thirty years on, broadcaster and journalist Mobeen Azhar returns to Yorkshire, where the protest first began, to examine the lasting effect the book has had on his community, and to meet people often ignored by the mainstream media whose lives were for ever affected by the book. Mobeen hears from a range of people who were affected by the so called 'Rushdie Affair' - from the men who took an early stand against the book and organised the original protests, to a writer who wrestled at the time of the book's publication with the complex questions of free speech and her own religious beliefs, and a former member of the National Front who claims that the furore over the book became a recruiting tool for them.
