Minister offers £6m to behead cartoonist

MINISTER in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh has offered a £6m reward to anyone who beheads one of the Danish cartoonists who outraged Muslims by depicting the prophet Muhammad. Yaqoob Qureshi, minister of minority welfare, said the killer would also receive his weight in gold. He made the offer during a rally in his constituency in Meerut, northeast of Delhi. Protesters then burnt an effigy of a cartoonist and some Danish flags.

A Pakistani cleric has also offered a $1m reward — and a car — as a “prize” to anyone who kills one of the cartoonists. Mohammed Yousaf Qureshi made his announcement after Friday prayers in the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar.

Can you imagine, in the 21st Century, the Pope or the Chief Rabbi placing a bounty on a human being?

This proves to me that Islam isn't a religion.

Man, if I only had that much money to waste plus one dollar, I would offer it as a bounty for the head of any one of these islamist jerks.

Isn't it against the law in India to put out a contract on someone? Most countries would frown on this sort of thing...

He is a high elected official of one of the most corrupt states in India.

He doesn't have any problem doing this, or anything else he feels like.

Neighbors, there's a "Bad Moon A-risin'"

Everything I have found about The War of the Twelve 'Toons ( links, blogs, quips, quotes, aggravating pictures ) is located here- click the Pic, and scroll backwards:

The title of this long-running post?

-Islam, a Religion of Peace®? Some links...--

Some call Islam TROP- The Religion of Peace. I call it TARP-- The Alleged Religion of Peace...

Let's not mince words- Islam is a Death Cult, mired in blood, ignorance, and oppression.

Thats one of the MAIN problems with Islam if you ask me... there is no "Pope of Islam".

Just a bunch of Imams of varying influence. Influence from both history (ancestry) and regional power.

SO they feel free to make up whatever rules, and they are 'right' but any other imam can say he is wrong, yet feel no responsibility to do anything about correcting him.

If there were a "Pope of Islam", it would be easier to clear up some of the 'rules', you would never have had the evolution to the point where they they say killing innocent men, women, and children by blowing yourself is wrong... except in certain circumstances

And indeed it is, as long as everyone in the world submits to their demands.

What concerns me is that many, certainly not all liberals, do not think the war on terror is a legitimate war. They had better get their Bush hating heads out of the sand and wake up. We will see more Islamo- whack jobs in the US and then, hopefully the sheeple will realize this is huge !

Oh! It's a religion alright, and more than a few who practice it are sociopathic fanatics.

Would this be government funds or from his own pocket?
