The Pakistani government has released a statement saying an offer by one of its ministers’ of $100,000 for anyone who kills the maker of an anti-Islam film does not represent official policy.
A Pakistani foreign office statement today distanced the government from the reward announcement by Railways Minister Gulam Ahmad Bilour made on Saturday.
Bilour said he would pay the money from his own pocket, and so his offer still remains.
What does anyone gain from killing a misguided man? Well…maybe $100,000.
