51 crores not enough? Qureshi asks people to fix reward amount

Mohammad Yaqoob Qureshi, who created a furore in 2006 by announcing a reward of Rs 51 crore to anyone who beheads a Danish cartoonist for drawing caricatures of Prophet Mohammed, is in the news again.

This time, however, he has asked the people of Meerut to fix the quantum of the bounty for the "avenger" after some Danish newspapers reprinted last week the controversial cartoon that depicted the Prophet wearing a turban which resembled a bomb.

Qureshi said

"This time the people of Meerut should decide what should be the amount of the reward,"  Qureshi also said "the Centre should demand an apology from Denmark and the Uttar Pradesh assembly should condemn the reprint of the controversial cartoon"

Will the UPA Govt send a démarche to Danish Government this time also?
