Jaipur: Jaipur literature festival, which is set of kick off this week, has been marred by controversy with a group of Islamic clerics protesting the presence of authors who read from Salman Rushdie's banned book 'The Satanic Verses' in the 2012 edition of the festival. The clerics have said they don't want any of the four authors to take part in the annual festival this time.
