Haji Ghulam Ahmad Bilour (ANP)Pakistan Railway Minister Haji Ghulam Ahmad Bilour (ANP) have announced to $100,000 bounty for the head of the filmmaker who has made the anti-Islam movie videos, posted over YouTube, that has spark riots and anger in Muslim world. It is really appalling to see a federal minister offers reward for a criminal act. Earlier Pakistan has faced a week of turbulence where violent protesters took the street and ransack the public property and lots of innocent lives were lost.

Anti-Islam movie protest in PakistanBut Minister Haji Ghulam Ahmad Bilour is a clever man. He has kills two birds with one stone. Firstly, by capitalizing the angry public sentiments, he has launch campaign early for upcoming election in early 2013. Secondly, he has made name removed from The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) hit list and made soft corner for expressing in anti-US rhetoric. It is really surprising that government of Pakistan who is an ally to US led war on terror, has not any notice to such criminal statement. The US has already officially slammed Haji Ghulam Ahmad Bilour criminal bounty offer and lodge protest. It was also reported Bilour has planned to finance significant amount of bounty from public funds and his own political party Awami National Party (ANP).

Anti-Islam movie protest in KarachiIt is important to mention here that government of United States has nothing to do in making anti-Islam film or video. It was made by some small time filmmaker and it was not noticed until it was posted over YouTube. In Pakistan, where law and order situation is worsening due to government lack of interest, street crime and ransack is increasing in urban areas. During the violent anti-Islam movie protest, many criminal and miscreant also took the street to rob and damage public and government properties. Any such irresponsible statement from federal minister is going to further encourage such violent and criminal activities.
