Pakistani minister Haji Ghulam Ahmad Bilour offers $100,000 to anyone who kills producer of film which allegedly disrespected Islam & Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

A Pakistani minister has offered $100,000 bounty to anyone who kills the maker of a recent film that disrespected Islam and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

“I announce today that this blasphemer who has abused the holy Prophet (PBUH), if somebody will kill him, I will give that person a prize of $100,000," Railways Minister Ghulam Ahmad Bilour told a news conference on Saturday in the northwestern city of Peshawar.

"I also announce that if the government hands this person over to me, my heart says I will finish him with my own hands and then they can hang me," he added.

Anti-U.S. demonstrations, which began on September 11 over the blasphemous U.S.-made movie, continued on Sunday, with protesters chanting slogans against Washington, marching on U.S. embassies, and torching U.S. flags across the world.

Muslims in Iran, Turkey, Sudan, Egypt, Yemen, Tunisia, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Indonesia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, Iraq, Morocco, Syria, Lebanon, Kuwait, Nigeria, Kenya, Mali, Nigeria, Australia, Britain, the United States, France, Belgium, and several other countries have held many demonstrations to condemn the blasphemous movie over the past week. Protests were also held in Kashmir and the Gaza Strip.

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, more than 20 people were killed in Pakistan during demonstrations over the video.

People involved in the film, an amateurish 13-minute clip of which was posted on YouTube, have said it was made by a 55-year-old California man, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula.

Nakoula has not returned to his home in the Los Angeles suburb of Cerritos since leaving voluntarily to be interviewed by federal authorities. His family has since gone into hiding.

On Sunday, Pakistan’s major cities were still the scene of massive protests against the anti-Islam movie.
