  • Description

    SOME TWO THOUSAND MOSLEMS DEMONSTRATED OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES EMBASSY BUILDING IN NEW DELHI YESTERDAY, PROTESTING AGAINST AMERICAN BACKING OF ISRAEL IN ALLEGED AGGRESSION AGAINST ARAB STATES IN THE MIDDLE EAST WAR.

    THE MOSLEMS HAD ASSEMBLED OUTSIDE THE HISTORIC JAMA MASJID AND MARCHED TO THE U.S. EMBASSY CARRYING BANNERS AND PLACARDS.

    THE PROTEST MARCH WAS ORGANISED BY THE MOSLEM JAMAIT ULAMAISHIND ORGANISATION. RELIGIOUS LEADERS HAD ADDRESSED CROWDS OUTSIDE THE JAMA MASJID AND URGED THEIR FOLLOWERS TO MAKE THE MARCH.

    THE DEMONSTRATION LASTED FOR TWO HOURS IN THE GRUELLING HEAT OF NEW DELHI, AS THE CROWD WATCHED BY POLICE, SHOUTED AND WAVED ANTI-AMERICAN SLOGANS.

    SOME OF THE BANNERS READ "DOWN WITH WARMONGER AMERICA" AND OTHERS ALLEGING THAT ISRAEL WAS AN AMERICAN MILITARY BASE.

    AT THE END OF THE DEMONSTRATION, THE MOSLEM LEADERS HANDED IN A MEMORANDUM TO AN EMBASSY OFFICIAL. IT SAID THAT WITHOUT THE BACKING AND SUPPORT OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT AND "OTHER IMPERIALIST WESTERN POWERS, ISRAEL DARE NOT ATTACK ARAB COUNTRIES AND DARE NOT FLOUT THE WORLD PUBLIC OPINION".
