    Pakistani-British MP offers reward for Obama's capture

    IANS - Apr 16, 2012, 08.04PM

    LONDON:
    A Pakistani-origin member of the House of Lords was suspended from the Labour party after it was reported he had offered a reward of 10 million pounds for the capture of US President Barack Obama.

    Nazir Ahmed -- the Lord Ahmed of Rotherham -- reportedly made the offer after the US announced a $10 million bounty for Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Muhammed Saeed, who was blamed for orchestrating the 2008 Mumbai terror attack.

    Ahmed described the bounty on Saeed as an "insult to all Muslims", the Daily Mail reported.

    Ahmed reportedly said Obama had "challenged the dignity of the Muslim community" and said his reward also applied to Obama's predecessor, George W. Bush.

    A Pakistani daily said Ahmed made the remarks in Haripur, Pakistan, last week.

    "We have suspended Lord Ahmed pending investigation. If these comments are accurate, we utterly condemn these remarks which are totally unacceptable," a Labour spokesman said.

    Ahmed denied offering a bounty, but said he told the meeting that Bush and former British prime minister Tony Blair should be prosecuted for war crimes.

    He said from Pakistan that no one from the Labour party had contacted him before announcing the suspension.

    "They have suspended me? That's a surprise to me. I did not know," he told the Daily Mail.

    Asked about the comments, he said: "I never said those words. I did not offer a bounty. I said that there have been war crimes committed in Iraq and Afghanistan and those people who have got strong allegations against them - George W. Bush and Tony Blair - have been involved in illegal wars and should be brought to justice."

    This guys nutty. I remember him as Lord Naz from Sheffield when I used to be there.
    Not many pay attention to what he says, he's made silly remarks before.
    I would just shrug and ignore it. He's nuts.
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
