Matar Who Damaged Rushdie Doesn’t Resist Impunity as He Considers His Mission Accomplished
The killing was his most desirable goal.
Hadi Matar, who attempted to murder Salman Rushdie, makes no secret of his dark and cynic intentions, even in court. The criminal is so proud of his act he doesn't need protection.
Jason Schmidt, Matar’s lawyer, stated in the court that stabbing the professor was a noble idea for the accused and he doesn't regret it. Per Hollywood Reporter, the attorney claims his client doesn’t worry about his future, he is satisfied to have completed the “honorary” mission.
“He doesn’t care about his own freedom, judge, and is so driven by his motives that his mission to kill Mr. Rushdie is greater in his mind and outweighs his own personal freedom.”
