Over 100 activists and members of some Hindu and Jewish organisations staged a demonstration near the White House, urging new US President Barack Obama to take strong steps against jehadi terrorism and declare Pakistan a terrorist state following the Mumbai attacks.
"Yes, We Can ? And Must Defeat Jihadists ," read one of the banners as the demonstrators shouted slogans yesterday demanding Pakistan be declared a terrorist state and Iran stopped from making nuclear weapons that threaten Israel.
The three-and-half-hour demonstration was organised under the banner of "Coalition for Peace."
Most of the banners called on the new administration to protect the free world from "radical" Islam.
To accomplish this, demonstrators said, the President must seize Saudi assets in order to pay for the extremists crimes against humanity and recognise that Pakistan has played a double-game with the US, presenting itself as an ally of America, while, at the same time, hosting terrorists, who are especially targeting their next-door neighbour India.
They said it is same radical ideology which led to terrorist attacks in Mumbai and "plagued" Israel for decades.
Terrorism "is a problem not just for Israel and India, but for the entire World. It is also a problem for Muslims who yearn for freedom of thought...," said Narain Kataria, one of the organisers.
He said it is absolutely essential for the US, the world's only Super Power, to take the lead in "exterminating terrorism from the face of the earth."Source: Indiainfo
