Pakistani minister places bounty placed on anti-Islam filmmaker
By Jibran Ahmad

PESHAWAR, Pakistan | Sat Sep 22, 2012 9:37pm EDT

(Reuters) - A Pakistani minister offered $100,000 on Saturday to anyone who kills the maker of an online video which insults Islam, as sporadic protests rumbled on across parts of the Muslim world.

"I announce today that this blasphemer, this sinner who has spoken nonsense about the holy Prophet, anyone who murders him, I will reward him with $100,000," Railways Minister Ghulam Ahmad Bilour told a news conference, to applause.

"I invite the Taliban brothers and the al Qaeda brothers to join me in this blessed mission."

A spokesman for Pakistan's prime minister said the government disassociated itself from the minister's statement.

While many Muslim countries saw mostly peaceful protests on Friday, fifteen people were killed in Pakistan during demonstrations over the video.

I guess Pakistan does not need US help any more.
If individuals can so easily part with their own personal money, the cabinet can pull their money to finance the country's defense budget
