Ex-KP lawmaker places $200,000 bounty on anti-Islam filmmaker


Thousands of demonstrators marched in Peshawar on Monday against the US-made anti-Islam movie, while a former provincial lawmaker announced a bounty of $200,000 on the head of the filmmaker. It is the second time a bounty was announced for anyone who kills the maker of the blasphemous film which has triggered protests across the Muslim world. Ikramullah Shahid, a former member of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly, announced the head money at the rally. Earlier, Federal Minister for Railways Ghulam Ahmed Bilour offered $100,000 for anyone who kills the film producer. The Pakistani government had disassociated itself from Bilour’s announcement after the bounty was condemned by the United States.
