Members of the Islamist Salafis shout slogans during a demonstration against a film produced in the U.S. that they said was insulting to Prophet Mohammad near the U.S. embassy in Amman, September 14, 2012.
A Pakistani government minister has offered a $100,000 reward for the death of the maker of an anti-Islam film produced in the U.S, BBC News is reporting.
BBC says Ghulam Ahmad Bilour has said he would pay the reward for the "sacred duty" out of his own pocket.
The poorly-made film, Innocence of Muslims, which denigrates the Prophet Muhammad, has sparked angry protests across the Muslim world.
U.S. authorities say they have identified Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, an Egyptian-born Coptic Christian living in California, as the man who made the film.
According to the BBC, Nakoula, who was found guilty of fraud in 2010 and ordered to pay more than
$790,000 in restitution, is thought to have used the pseudonym Sam Bacile to hide his identity.
Nakoula is now in hiding.
The Canadian Hindu Advocacy, a group based in Toronto, plans to screen the film later this month at an undisclosed location, organizers told QMI Agency.
The organization's spokesman, Ron Banerjee, said about 200 people are expected for the screening.
