MULTAN: Khangarh police on Tuesday arrested a man who had announced a Rs20 million prize for whoever would kill Governor Salmaan Taseer. Sardar Ebaad Dogar had made the announcement at a rally organised last Friday against proposals to amend or reform the blasphemy laws.

Talking to The Express Tribune after the rally, Dogar had said that he felt no embarrassment in making the announcement.

He had said he would raise the reward to Rs30 million if someone from Khangarh would kill Taseer.

Dogar had served as Khangarh’s district nazim on a Pakistan Muslim League-Q ticket. He was accused of association with banned organisation Sipah-i-Sahaba Pakistan before joining the PML-Q.

The police have shifted him to unidentified location and started interrogation.

QuranVsHadith | 10 years ago | Reply Why are murder threats taken so lightly in this country? It is apparent that the people who make the threats have no problem following through with the threats. There is no free speech, yet people are free to threaten others lives? In all rational countries it is the opposite, you have free speech on every topic, EXCEPT for threatening a persons life, including your own life. Everything is completly opposite here to everything that is rational and logical. This nation is lost and the key reason for that is the lack of education. No one reads ANYTHING of world history or even the Quran. What a sick joke this place is.
