New bounty offer for prophet filmmaker

2012-10-01 15:12

Peshawar — 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 on 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 US-made film that portrays Islam's Prophet Muhammad as a fraud, womaniser and child molester.

Outraged Muslims have rallied against the film. At least 23 people have died in protests in Pakistan against the film.

    Ah Religion, where one totally insane, moronic, deluded act deserves another. Dont you just love these deluded religiots. What a bunch of a$$holes. And what's even more deluded is that Islam condones this kind of behaviour. What a joke.

      Should have done it for 'War of the Worlds' , a blasphemous rendition by the speilberg/cruise pair.

      merven.halo - 2012-10-02 08:55

      But they don't get it, they are VIRGINS, they are going to stay virgins! The entire Muslim heaven is going to be full of masturbators.

  • gerrit.vanpletzen - 2012-10-01 16:38

    He should be charged with every death caused by the uproar his piece of filthy anti-muslim propaganda has caused!

      So if I write a book or make a movie relating my opinion about countries that have lowered the age of consent to the age of 14 to have sex and how, in my opinion, they might be encouraging paedophilia or moral decay, and the residents of Spain, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Italy, etc go on the rampage in protest about my views, must I also be vilified for their crimes? For a person versed in the law I think your comment is just as narrow minded as the Muslim extremists. A person should be held accountable for his own actions, as in the law, and start taking responsibility for their own lives. If a person needs to defend his religion from an attack that was not based on violence, then it shows that the basis of his religion is weak and cannot be defended with anything but violence as he would then lose based on any other grounds.

      i have no idea why the west is after our religion. saudi arabia follows shariah law, and everybody is living in peace. we don't need so called liberation from your western peacemakers, just leave us as is, these laws work us just fine and it doesn't mean you need to like it.

      ianingwe - 2012-10-01 22:34

      No Gerhard they married them all off when they turned seven the same as Aisha!

  • cya.khubone - 2012-10-01 17:04

    They kill in name of the religion of ''peace''. How pathetic is that?

      boom.afridi.56 - 2012-10-01 18:06

      well your fellow black mates kill in the name of freedom from apartheid. maybe they kill as a result of their religion being oppressed. it's like you now label every muslim a terrorist. i can draw many parallels to apartheid. surely you would understand. and no i do not agree with killing of innocents, torching restaurants etc. to kill an innocent is not what islam teaches.

      yusuf.amod.5 - 2012-10-01 18:14

      Innocent farmers were being killed many years in the name of freedom/apartheid.Kill the boer kill the farmer,proudly sung and chanted to this very day by FREEDOM ACTIVISTS. BLACK PEOPLE OF PEACE How pathetic is that?

  • yusuf.amod.5 - 2012-10-01 18:07

    I am upping the bounty to $500 000.Will double to $1000 000 if testicles are brought back

      boom.afridi.56 - 2012-10-01 18:53

      as muslim we are taught not to insult other religions. we will never insult the prophet jesus. that is the difference between our religion and yours. bear in mind that god deals with people like you in his own way.

      garth.baldwin.96 - 2012-10-01 19:00

      @ yusuf.amod.5 : really?? You want to hold another guys testicles??

      zaatheist - 2012-10-01 19:51

      Another brainwashed brain addled crazy man who worships a paedophile.

      merry.martin.944 - 2012-10-01 22:00

      @boom: Actually Boom, with respect, (and I am sure you very well know this), by referring to Jesus as the PROPHET Jesus, you have just insulted many Christians. Peace and blessings.

      Your taste buds can't repel a flavour of that magnitude!

  • gary.buynary - 2012-10-01 20:22

    sorry to say, but repaying violence with violence is not how to deal with the situation. Its childish.

  • teddy.beer.319 - 2012-10-01 22:00

    Imagine: you address 15000 people who live at less than a dollar a day to kill some chap and get 200k?

  • jojo.balela.1 - 2012-10-02 01:05

    the filmmaker has the same apartheid mentality as the artist who disrespected our President Zuma. Viva democracy. Viva freedom from discrimination. Phansi the haters, phansi

  • Shaun McDermott - 2012-10-02 03:44

  • Gcodi Mahomed - 2012-10-02 06:25

    america has the highest cases of sexual abuse against women and the most incidents of phedophelia,in the world,

      bibi.vanzyl - 2012-10-02 06:55

      Nope Gcodi, South Africa tops that list too. We are talking about terrorists not criminals as such.

      merven.halo - 2012-10-02 09:06

      " and the most incidents of phedophelia,in the world" But you see it as a marriage right, you do realise is stays pedophilia?

      gerhard.kress.3 - 2012-10-02 11:06

      Facts are facts. Mohammed was a child molester and rapist.

      ft.burhaak - 2012-10-02 23:51

      @gerhard.Isnt rape and incest 1 of the fundamental pillars of atheism.pls dnt confuse ur demonic cult wid our Religion.Im sure theres an orgy u can attend.if u have nothing to do.

      gerhard.kress.3 - 2012-10-03 17:28

      burhaak, how much consent does a 9-year old have???

      suhail.dinat - 2012-10-04 15:54

      @Gerhard... about as much consent as Saartjie Baartman, Hiroshima and Holocaust victims, thousands of slaves as well as the Apartheid victims under every corrupt, hypocrytical Western regime you so idolise...

  • suhail.dinat - 2012-10-03 17:01

    So by western standards, or at least the standards of those commenting, blatantly insulting Jesus Christ would be deemed acceptable? When merely saying his name in vain is frowned upon? NO religion, not even Islam, promotes the slander of anothers belief- let alone the misinformed slander occuring on a daily basis around the world. The mere fact that a Western society responsible for atrocities such as slavery, the Holocaust, Apartheid, Hiroshima and the millions of undocumented raping and murdering of innocent women and children in the name of war can call anyone else inhuman is simply laughable. Each and every rule of Islam is purely for the protection of its believers. Mohammed never molested anyone- it was decided that he would wed the daughter of his friend once she'd reached a suitable age by mutual consent. Likewise, most of his wives were widows, divorcees etc with no means of sustainability- he strove to serve as an example as to how women should be treated. The instruction for women to cover themselves was once again for their benefit- knowing the ways of men, it was intended to minimize the risk of temptation. Looking at the amount of "free", scantily clad women being raped as opposed to ours merely strengthens that theory. Furthermore, humility, lowering ones gaze and voice as well as conducting oneself properly are all characteristics emphasises by the religion. ANYTHING taken out of context can be manipulated to suit the speaker. Get your facts in order, please.

      allcoveredinNinjas - 2012-10-03 17:22

      Your facts are wrong dude , organise yours before spewing lies as truth . Go pick up a few text books and listen less to preaching coz pretty much everything you put down is false.

  • suhail.dinat - 2012-10-03 21:47

    Which facts dude? PLEASE point them out, since you know better...
