HAFIZABAD - Almi Tanzeem Ahle Sunnat Ameer Pir Muhammad Afzal Qadri has announced to award gold equal to the weight of the person who becomes successful in killing blasphemers, including Terry Jones.

The announcement came after the railways minister pledged bounty on Terry Jones who produced an anti- Islam movie in the US, drawing ire among the Ummah.  Addressing a protest rally, he said that the US and other western countries are hatching conspiracies against Islam and the Muslims, and producing sacrilegious films and caricatures but their conspiracies would be foiled by the Ummah.

Addressing a workers' convention, he said that the US and her other allies have become a challenge for the Muslims thus the Believers should forge unity to defeat their evil designs.

Earlier, the Ameer along with Younas Qadri and Shahbzada Ali Zulqarnain led a rally to protest against the blasphemous film. On the occasion, Sarwat Ijaz Qadri, the chief of the Sunni Tehrik Pakistan, urged the Muslims to live their lives according to the teachings of the Holy Quran and Sunnah.

He said that the present government had failed to provide any relief to the masses and instead it had created chaos, anarchy, lawlessness, corruption and loot, besides increasing prices of all essential commodities which has ruined lives.

He also condemned drone attacks on innocent people in Pakistan and demanded that the government should not obey the US government. He said that Sunni Tehrik will hold Azad Pakistan Conference in Liaquat Bagh Rawalpindi on October 7 to start its mass contact campaign. He said that he had written a letter to the US ambassador to ensure introduction of blasphemy act at international level.
