Protests in wake of Mumbai terror

Thousands of people took to the streets of Mumbai Dec. 3 to demand India’s leaders do more to protect them from terrorism in the wake of last week’s attacks. A BBC reporter on the scene says many of the protesters called for military action against Pakistan. (AFP, BBC World Service, Dec. 4) Meanwhile, Muslims from Mumbai and several other Indian cities are preparing Dec. 8 demonstrations to oppose all those who spread terror in the name of Islam. In Mumbai, a silent vigil will be held at the scene of the attacks. The theme of the mobilization is “Killers of innocents are enemies of Islam.” (Times of India, Dec. 4)
