Pakistan: Creepy Cabinet Minister issues bounty for filmmaker’s death
A Pakistani Cabinet minister has offered a US$100,000 reward for the death of the person behind the anti-Islam video made in the United States that has roiled Muslims around the world, even suggesting that Taliban and al-Qaeda militants could carry out the killing.
Railways Minister Ghulam Ahmad Balor said at a news conference in Peshawar that he would personally finance a bounty aimed at the maker of the crude, low-budget video that denigrates the Prophet Muhammad.
Mr Balor acknowledged that incitement to murder was illegal but said he was “ready to be hanged in the name of the Prophet Muhammad.”
Well, let’s not muck about — give the man what he wants.
