Ordinarily in most religions of the world, the words of God or his prophet speak of love and charity to all humans. The essence of the Muslim religion is to spread the word of goodness and charity. However, the Pakistan Minister of Railways, Ghalam Ahmed Bilour apparently has decided to alter his own religion’s beliefs. He spoke words of anger and hate. “I announce today that this blasphemer who has abused the holy prophet, if somebody will kill him, I will give that person a prize of $100,000. I also invite Taliban and al-Qaeda brothers to be partners in this noble deed.”
The Taliban and al-Qaeda are responsible for the deaths of hundreds of innocent Pakistanis and this member of the government is inviting them to kill? How can one call those who kill your people, “brothers?” This man is a symbol of what is wrong with Pakistan. Its leaders aid and abet those who kill Pakistanis!
