Muslims protest Danish cartoon, German film on Islam

Hundreds of Muslims took out a silent procession here last evening to condemn the derogatory depiction of Prophet Mohammad in a Danish paper, and a German film showing Islam in bad light. Carrying banners and placards reading “Down with Denmark, Germany and Israel”, the protesters marched down the street demanding that the government convey their sentiments to the three countries through diplomatic channels. There have conspiracies to disgrace Islam. First the film titled ‘Fitna’ that depicts Quran in bad light and secondly the republication of derogatory cartoons of Prophet Mohammad. The Muslim community is extremely hurt by these actions. So, we have taken out a silent procession to voice our concerns. We hope the authorities would carry the message to those who are carrying out such actions,” said Abdul Latif Khan, a cleric.
