A former Pakistani legislator offered a $200,000 bounty for anyone who kills US anti-Mohammad “Innocense of Muslims” fimmaker.
Huffington Post reported:
A former Pakistani legislator has offered a $200,000 bounty for anyone who kills the maker of an anti-Islam film that has angered Muslims around the world.
Ikramullah Shahid made the offer at a rally Monday in the northwestern city of Peshawar, before a crowd of about 15,000 people.
The rally was led by the Difa-e-Pakistan Council, an umbrella group of radical Islamic and militant groups. Shahid is a member of the group.
This is the second such offer made by someone in Pakistan. A federal cabinet minister earlier offered $100,000 for the man behind the U.S.-made film that portrays Islam’s Prophet Muhammad as a fraud, womanizer and child molester.
