Thesigers' Bulletin Quoted in the Telegraph of India (Calcutta)

LONDON - Current Intelligence, Thesigers' online and quarterly bulletin of current affairs, was recently quoted at length in an op-ed in The Telegraph (Calcutta), which has been described as one of India's top five most influential newspapers, with a readership numbering in the millions.

In a recent essay in Current Intelligence entitled "Does Salman Rushdie Exist?", regular contributor Faisal Devji, Reader in South Asian History at St. Antony's College, Oxford, critiqued events surrounding the 2012 Jaipur Literary Festival and support for writer Salman Rushdie. In "The Lessons of Jaipur: Censors, Censure and Salman Rushdie", published in the 13 February 2012 edition of The Telegraph, Indian writer Mukul Kesavan challenged Devji's analysis, quoting several passages from the original essay. Devji subsequently responded to this and other commentary in a second essay, entitled "Rushdie Redux".
