Indian Bounty on Heads of Danish Cartoonists Update

Well, this is kinda sorta heartening, except for the disheartening parts. An Indian Islamic legal council, citing Koranic precepts, denounced the Uttar Pradesh state minister who offered gold for the heads of the Danish cartoonists. But their main beef is that the proper authority for calling for such things does not lie with the secular government, but with the Islamic clergy. And the minister's fellow pols are sticking up for him.

This is not the kind of People Power I'd like to see loose in the world.
