Indian Muslim Body Offers Reward for Killing a Female Journalist

Bareilly, India -- President of All India Muslim Personal Board (Jadeed) Maulana Tauqeer Raza Khan today announced a reward of Rs 5 lakh on Bangladeshi writer Tasleema Nasreen's head if New Delhi does not restrict her entry into the country.

Addressing the board's annual meeting here, Tauqeer alleged the Centre was deliberately hurting sentiments of Muslims by not banning her entry to the country.

Noting that Nasreen had made "derogatory references against Prophet Mohammad in her writings", Tauqeer said, "We demand that the government should ban her entry into the country. If it is not done, anyone who beheads her will be given a reward of Rs five lakh," he announced.

The board had earlier elected Maulana Tauseef Raza Khan as its new president.
