Bhopal, April 4 (IANS) Thousands of Muslims here Friday took out a silent rally to protest against an anti-Islam cartoon in Denmark. The protesters, led by Shahar Qaji Abdul Latif, gathered at Iqbal Maidan outside Moti Masjid after Friday prayers and walked though the streets of the city to protest what they called conspiracy against Muslims at international level.

Later, they handed over a memorandum to state Governor Balram Jakhar. The memorandum was addressed to President Pratibha Patil to whom the community leaders have appealed to take strong steps against the treatment meted out to the Muslims in Denmark.

“Every community has the right to live with dignity and no religion teaches hatred against anyone,” said the memorandum read out by Latif.
