The rally was led by the Difa-e-Pakistan Council, an umbrella group of radical Islamic and militant groups. Shahid is a member of the group.

This is the second such offer made by someone in Pakistan. A federal cabinet minister earlier offered $100,000 for the man behind the U.S.-made film that portrays Islam's Prophet Muhammad as a fraud, womanizer and child molester.

Outraged Muslims have rallied against the film. At least 23 people have died in protests in Pakistan against the film.
