Protests against Britain's decision to honor Salman Rushdie are set to take place across Pakistan on Friday, a day after a hardline cleric bestowed a title on Osama bin Laden in response to the author's knighthood. Pakistan, a close ally of Britain and the US, has condemned the granting of knighthood for Rushdie, who has been accused of insulting Islam in his novel The Satanic Verses. Protesters have burned effigies of Rushdie and Queen Elizabeth II and demanded that Britain take back the award - a request London has refused.
