    After a massive controversy over Salman Rushdie's proposed attendance at the Jaipur Literature Festival last year, controversy mars the Fest again this year. Hardline groups have warned the organisers against allowing four authors - Jeet Thayil, Ruchir Sharma, Hari Kunzru and Amitava Kumar - who read out passages from the banned book 'Satanic Verses' by Salman Rushdie, to the festival. The organisers of the Lit Fest have hit back saying they will not be bullied by hardliners.
