An Indian state minister has offered a reward of more than $10 million and a prospective killer's weight in gold to anyone who beheads one of the cartoonists who angered Muslims by depcting the Prophet Mohammed in a Danish newspaper, the London Sunday Times reported this week.
The offer follows a Pakistani cleric's reward of $1 million and a car for the killing of one of the cartoonists.
The new, larger reward was announced by Yaqoob Qureshi, minister of minority welfare in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, in a speech to constituents in Meerit, northeast of Delhi.
Protesters then burned an effigy of a cartoonist and Danish flags, the Times reported.
Death toll in clashes rises to 43
Over the weekend, violent protests against the cartoons erupted in Nigeria, where demonstrators in two northern states torched 11 churches.
The death toll in clashes tied to protests over the cartoons has risen to 43.

This is a great opportunity for an obese hitman!
"Indian minister said offering $10m for beheading cartoonist"
offering is one thing, its another to pay
WTF? Is that "Black" Jack McDowell, former pitcher for the White Sox. What the hell is he doing in Pakistan?
"An Indian state minister has offered a reward of more than $10 million and a prospective killer's weight in gold to anyone who beheads one of the cartoonists..."
Anybody have acccess to a morgue? I could show up with some deceased homeless guy's head and say, "Here's the guy, pay me." I'll share. :)
i declare a fatwa on anyone who offers a reward for killing the cartoonists.
anyone who kills on of these idiots who offers a reward for killing somebody will GET 75--YES SEVENTY-FIVE--VIRGINS in heaven.
I don't beleive in assignation...however, we should be able to see a movie with a Mullah opening up his big mouth for murder and receiving a sniper's bullet from afar. It would be a mystery...who assignated the Mullah...a neo-Crusaders group, the CIA, Israel, Britian...who is killing all the big mouth mullahs and blowing up protesting cartoon jihadists? I would go see that movie it fifteen times. : )
On a related note, I wonder if that rock thrower should go to the Mets camp for a tryout....
Michael Moore is calling his agent as we speak....
Only if he can play second base.
Meanwhile, as the islamodolts are played like a fish on a line, Iran moves ahead with it's nuclear plans. If anyone thinks this fuss is about anything besides distracting attention from Iran and keeping the west too busy to intervene, I have some land in Florida to sell you, at low tide.
OUTRAGED MUSLIMS! OH MY!
We wake up this morning to see video on CNN showing rampaging Muslims around the world. In Europe, the Middle East, the Pacific Rim . Muslim Mobs spreading mayhem. It seems that these mighty mad Muslims are rioting and firing their ever-present AK-47s into the air because of cartoons. Yup ... this latest epidemic of Muslim outrage comes to us because some newspapers in Norway and Denmark published some cartoons depicting Mohammed. In fact ... here is one of my favorites!
Admit it, this turban/bomb thing could be the next big fashion hit on the Muslim street!
Muslim outrage huh. OK ... let's do a little historical review. Just some lowlights:
Muslims fly commercial airliners into buildings in New York City. No Muslim outrage.
Muslim officials block the exit where school girls are trying to escape a burning building because their faces were exposed. No Muslim outrage.
Muslims cut off the heads of three teenaged girls on their way to school in Indonesia. A Christian school. No Muslim outrage.
Muslims murder teachers trying to teach Muslim children in Iraq. No Muslim outrage.
Muslims murder over 80 tourists with car bombs outside cafes and hotels in Egypt. No Muslim outrage.
A Muslim attacks a missionary children's school in India. Kills six. No Muslim outrage.
Muslims slaughter hundreds of children and teachers in Beslan, Russia. Muslims shoot children in the back. No Muslim outrage.
Let's go way back. Muslims kidnap and kill athletes at the Munich Summer Olympics. No Muslim outrage.
Muslims fire rocket-propelled grenades into schools full of children in Israel. No Muslim outrage.
Muslims murder more than 50 commuters in attacks on London subways and busses. Over 700 are injured. No Muslim outrage.
Muslims massacre dozens of innocents at a Passover Seder. No Muslim outrage.
Muslims murder innocent vacationers in Bali. No Muslim outrage.
Muslim newspapers publish anti-Semitic cartoons. No Muslim outrage.
Muslims are involved, on one side or the other, in almost every one of the 125+ shooting wars around the world. No Muslim outrage.
Muslims beat the charred bodies of Western civilians with their shoes, then hang them from a bridge. No Muslim outrage.
Newspapers in Denmark and Norway publish cartoons depicting Mohammed. Muslims are outraged.
Dead children. Dead tourists. Dead teachers. Dead doctors and nurses. Death, destruction and mayhem around the world at the hands of Muslims .. no Muslim outrage ...
Come on, is this really about cartoons? They're rampaging and burning flags. They're looking for Europeans to kidnap. They're threatening inkeepers and generally raising holy Muslim hell not because of any outrage over a cartoon. They're outraged because it is part of the Islamic jihadist culture to be outraged. You don't really need a reason. You just need an excuse. Wandering around, destroying property, murdering children, firing guns into the air and feigning outrage over the slightest perceived insult is to a jihadist what tailgating is to a Steeler's fan.
I know and understand that these bloodthirsty murderers do not represent the majority of the world's Muslims. When, though, do they become outraged? When do they take to the streets to express their outrage at the radicals who are making their religion the object of worldwide hatred and ridicule? Islamic writer Salman Rushdie wrote of these silent Muslims in a New York Times article three years ago. "As their ancient, deeply civilized culture of love, art and philosophical reflection is hijacked by paranoiacs, racists, liars, male supremacists, tyrants, fanatics and violence junkies, why are they not screaming?"
Indeed. Why not?
