“I don’t like him.
“He’s someone who attacked Islam.
“When I heard he survived I was surprised.”
Matar, in jail accused of attempted murder, spoke on video to the New York Post.
Cops suspect he acted on a 1989 ruling from Iran’s religious leader over Rushdie’s “blasphemous” Satanic Verses book.
He is off a ventilator since being stabbed last Friday in New York state.

He suffered a damaged eyeball struggling with the knifeman.
The free speech campaigner reckoned: “To see Salman Rushdie assaulted is unimaginable.”
