Pakistan Condemns Minister’s Bounty on U.S. Filmmaker

September 23, 2012

The Pakistani government condemned a recent cabinet official’s call for a $100,000 bounty on the maker of an anti-Muslim video that has been blamed for sparking riots around the world, according to the BBC.

A spokesman for the Pakistani Prime Minster Raja Pervez Ashraf says the government has “absolutely disassociated” itself from comments by Railways Minister Ghulam Ahmad Bilour, who called for the bounty.

"I will pay whoever kills the makers of this video $100,000," the minister had said. "If someone else makes other similar blasphemous material in the future, I will also pay his killers $100,000.”

 

Bilour called for the help of both the Taliban and al-Qaida to find and kill the filmmaker.
