Ghulam Ahmed Bilour, a Pakistani lawmaker, offered a $200,000 bounty for owners of Charlie Hebdo, adding that he would give $100,000 to the families of the two Islamist gunmen, who carried out a deadly attack on the French satirical weekly, according to the Pakistan Today newspaper.

"I had already declared that I will not tolerate any attack on the sanctity of the Holy Prophet (pbuh)," said Bilour, speaking at the National Assembly on Monday, as quoted by the daily. In 2012, the lawmaker offered $100,000 as a reward to anyone, who would kill the producers of "The Innocence of Muslims", a controversial anti-Islamic movie.
The Charlie Hebdo magazine is known for its satirical cartoons of political and religious leaders, including the Prophet Muhammad, who was portrayed holding a "Je Suis Charlie" sign on the cover of the issue published right after the January 7 attack.
