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 Sunday Times of London reported.

A Pakistani cleric has also offered a $1 million reward to anyone who kills one of the cartoonists.

Violent protests against the cartoons spread Saturday to Nigeria, where demonstrators in the northern states of Borno and Katsina set fire to 11 churches, the newspaper said.
