Fiery protest erupts in Bangladesh

News Dhaka, Bangladesh - 21 September 2012

Hundreds of Muslims took part in the protest against the American film 'Innocence of Muslims' and the French cartoon in weekly Charlie Hebdo, some waving religious flags, on September 21, 2012 in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Our contributor writes:

They chanted "Death to the United States and death to French”, the protesters also burnt French and American flags protesting anti-Islam movie and cartoon published in a French magazine. The protesters threatened to seize US embassy at Dhaka on Saturday as the movie director was released a day after he detained.

Separate demonstrations were also brought out from different mosques of the city after Juma prayer. In the Paltan area the demonstrators carried a symbolic coffin of US President Barak Obama. They called the cartoon and movie "provocative, disgraceful and the part of the conspiracy against Muslims of the world."

The protestors demand arrest and punishment for those who made the movie and cartoon in America and France.
 


 



A latest series of cartoons of the Prophet (SM), published by a French satirical weekly - Charlie Hebdo - Wednesday, fuel further the ongoing violent protests across the Muslim world. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and the foreign ministry have separately condemned the video with notes of protest.



 



Earlier, on September 12, 2012, the US ambassador to Libya and three other embassy staff were killed in a rocket attack on their car, a Libyan official said, as they were rushed from a consular building stormed by militants denouncing a US-made film insulting Prophet Mohammad (pbuh). The French government ordered for tightening up security at French diplomatic offices in the Muslim world, and notified that the French embassies in at least 20 Muslim countries would remain closed Friday.
