Mention who Rushdie is and how he relates -- he isn't introduced in the article
There are trivial ways to find the information you mention, and it's as if you expect us to write "news for ET" in assuming our readers won't know who Salman Rushdie is.
1. The article links to the Wikipedia entry on the book. 2. This is a follow-up on the article covering Rushdie's decision not to attend.
Both of those links trivially answer the points you raise. Were a news article to expound as you seem to think it should, it would cease to be a news article and become an encyclopedia entry. Seek those over there.
