"Jomhouri Eslami", an Iranian daily, reported on killed Azerbaijani journalist and writer Rafiq Tagı, calling him "Azerbaijani Salman Rushdie."
Rafiq Tağı, 61, against whom an execution Fatwa had been issued by an Iranian Grand Ayatollah, died four days after being stabbed several times in a late-night attack on November 19 in Bakı, Azerbaijan.
"Jomhouri Eslami" claims that, because Rafigh Tagı had insulted the prophet Muhammad, he was hated by people of Azerbaijan. According to the Iranian daily, Grand Ayatollah Fazel Lankarani, ordered Rafiq's death after people of Azerbaijan asked for a Fatwa against the journalist.
