Thousands of Muslims in the Indian capital, New Delhi, have held protests against a possible U.S.-led attack on Iraq.
The protesters chanted anti-American slogans and waved pictures of Saddam Hussein outside the city's main mosque after Friday prayers. The head cleric of Jama Masjid mosque, Syed Ahmed Bukhari, told the rally any attack on Iraq is an attack on Islam.
India's government has opposed war in Iraq, saying United Nations weapons inspectors should be able to continue searching the country for weapons of mass destruction and Iraq should fully comply with the U.N. resolution.
There are more than 120 million Muslims in India, about 12 percent of the country's population.
