A Pakistani Muslim cleric and his followers offered rewards amounting to over $1 million for anyone who killed Danish cartoonists who drew caricatures of the Prophet Mohammad that have enraged Muslims worldwide.
Yaqoob Qureshi, minister of minority welfare in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, made the offer during a rally in Meerut, northeast of New Delhi. Protesters then burnt an effigy of a cartoonist and some Danish flags
The Times of India: No legal action against Yaqoob
Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mulayam Singh Yadav may be upset with his minister announcing a Rs 51 crore bounty for the head of a Danish cartoonist, but his government says it will not take any legal action against Haji Yaqoob Qureshi's call for murder.
Im honestly going to make up some custom shirts with these Cartoons on them. If not these cartoons, I will depict "Ahalla" or how ever you spell it in some other way relating to this story.
Iran Renames Danish Pastries
Iranians love Danish pastries, but when they look for the flaky dessert at the bakery they now have to ask for "Roses of the Prophet Muhammad."
Bakeries across the capital were covering up their ads for Danish pastries Thursday after the confectioners' union ordered the name change in retaliation for caricatures of the Muslim prophet published in a Danish newspaper.
"Given the insults by Danish newspapers against the prophet, as of now the name of Danish pastries will give way to 'Rose of Muhammad' pastries," the union said in its order.
"This is a punishment for those who started misusing freedom of expression to insult the sanctities of Islam," said Ahmad Mahmoudi, a cake shop owner in northern Tehran.
Iran's Danish renaming wasn't the first time a food name has become a symbol of protest. A Republican congressman from North Carolina helped lead an effort to make sure Capitol Hill cafeterias changed their menus to advertise "freedom fries" instead of french fries after France opposed the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.
