Abstract
The central concern of this research paper is to study the inner motive of Salman Rushdie’s Shame and how he has directly used Pakistani contexts and dared to portray real historical personalities who ruled as dictators, alongside fictional ones. A study of fascism is one of his major preoccupations while dealing with themes concerning migration, rootlessness and urbanization in a postcolonial society.
