Prominent British author and philanthropist JK Rowling has received death threat after the failed assassination attempt on another prominent novelist Salman Rushdie.
JK Rowling is one of the best novelists the world has seen. She is famously known for her billion-dollar book Harry Potter.
So here we explore more about the concerning matter.
JK Rowling threatened with serious death threats.
Following her denunciation of the attack on Booker Prize-winning author Salman Rushdie on Twitter on Saturday, JK Rowling received a death threat.
The 57-year-old author, who described the news of Rushdie’s attack as “horrifying news,” tweeted her anguish over it “Currently feeling very ill. Let him be okay.”
On her post, a user responded, “Don’t worry, you are next,” in response.
Rowling later shared images of comments made in response to her tweet by user Meer Asif Aziz, who also referred to the attacker Hadi Matar as a “revolutionary Shia soldier” who adhered to the late Ayatollah Rohullah Khomeini’s fatwa.
Meer Asif Aziz, a Twitter user who defines himself as a “student, social activist, political activist, and research activist,” also lauded Hadi Matar, the New Jersey attacker who stabbed Rushfie many times on Friday during a literary event in western New York.

Rowling tweeted about the assault on Rushdie, and Aziz replied, “Don’t worry, you are next.” In light of the danger, Rowling tagged the Twitter support staff and requested help.
Rowling publicly requested help from Twitter, tweeting “Any chance of some support?” to @TwitterSupport. However, people have not deletedAziz’s yet.
Later, the British novelist thanked those who had shown worry for her safety. Additionally, stating that she had received assistance and that the authorities were looking into the threat.
Some trans activists had previously threatened Rowling because of her opinions on gender. Rowling is now the focus of another threat as a result of the attack on Salman Rushdie, who was scheduled to give a speech on free expression at a conference close to Buffalo, New York, when he was stabbed up to 15 times.
