However, in Rushdie's case, I wholeheartidly believe that he knew what he was doing and just did it anyway to cause a response. He didn't bank on it being that big of a response, I'll give him that, but maybe if he would have, he wouldn't have been in that much trouble.
I was actually just discussing it with my Dad that, on the off chance that I were to be given The Satanic Verses in Uni to read, what I would do? There are either two possibilities - 1) Consult a sheik, or 2) Just flat out refuse to read it. Now, this is purely hypothetical, as I'm sure most Unis will tell you what's on the course when you apply there, but still, Uni is on the way, and it's gonna be here pretty fast, and these questions need to be raised.
