Muslim Islamic NewsBangalore protests against anti-Islam cartoons 

By Ameen-e-Mudassar, Bangalore

The Milli Gazette Online

26 February 2006

In continuation of the ongoing worldwide condemnation against the cartoons of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), a mass protest by more than 60,000 Muslims was held in Bangalore, under the leadership of Ameer-e-Shariat - Mufti Mohammed Ashraf Ali, on 17 Feb 2006 after Maghrib prayers at the Shivajinagar stadium, Bangalore. 

The protest began from early morning with all Muslims shutting their businesses, schools, shops, all to express their protest against the ongoing "war of toons". All Mosques in Bangalore had only one topic for the Friday Sermon - " Protest against the Danes & Europeans ", which made many children, youth as well as old to come out in open protest. What followed then was a sea of men.

The mass protest began at 6:30 pm & within minutes, thousands gathered from all Bangalore. The entire area just became a sea of men in scull caps, kurta's and in all forms, from all sects. Speaking on the occasion, Maulana P.M. Zakariah Walajahi, Vice President Jamiatul Ulema-e-Hind, Karnataka said that it was only the second time in his life time he has seen Muslims in such large numbers gathered together in Bangalore, the last time being a rally to support Palestine in the year 1969. He said it was the love for the Prophet that has drawn so many people in just 2 days of its announcement. All speakers (religious leaders) took the opportunity given to them in expressing the real issues, motives behind the toons and what needs to be done by common man. The protest ended by 10:30 pm, making Muslims do a rethinking for themselves on their lives after this event.
