Salman Rushdie, the Indian-born British author who won the Booker, has been taken off his ventilator. Now he can talk.

BBC reported this information in a report on Monday (August 14).

Salman Rushdie’s agent Andrew Wylie confirmed this information. But earlier he said, Salman might lose an eye.

75-year-old Salman Rushdie was speaking at an event in New York state when he was stabbed by 24-year-old Hadi Matar. He stabbed Rushdie in the face and neck at least 10 times.

Many writers expressed relief at the news that Salman Rushdie could be taken off the ventilator and able to speak again, although details about Salman Rushdie’s condition were not known.
