Thousands Rally Against Red Mosque Attack


www.taipeitimes.com

Thousands of Islamist protesters vented their fury at Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf at mass rallies yesterday, some vowing to "destroy" him to avenge this week's deadly raid on the Red Mosque.

The US-backed military ruler fueled Islamist anger with this week's army assault on the pro-Taliban mosque complex in Islamabad that left 86 dead in a fierce 36-hour battle.

Increasing instability in Pakistan, as well as more
death threats to President Musharraf, a US ally.

Can Musharraf quell this situation or will protests turn to riots?

Musharraf is a dictator and should be brought down by any means. If the US policy is really bringing democracy, they should have (before invading Iraq on lies) stop supporting Musharraf. But we all know that US policies is creating instability to make money and expand the power of the NWO by war and death, not freedom at all, nor democracy.

I think Musharrif will be ousted soon, then again I thought he would've been ousted lonnnnggg ago. He seems to be master of living on borrowed time.

Dude, there's still time to flee the country in utter disgrace but with intact skin!!!

Can India afford to take such a risky move, especially with a large Muslim population within their borders?

Here's a little update:

Pakistan's top judge to lead anti-Musharraf rally

LAHORE, Pakistan: Pakistan's suspended chief justice was expected to address a rally against Gen. Pervez Musharraf later Saturday, a day after protesting Islamists condemned the president for ordering a deadly raid on a mosque.
[...]
Musharraf has already faced widespread calls for his resignation since Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammed Chaudhry was ousted on March 9 for alleged abuse of power and nepotism.

Chaudhry, who denies the charges, has challenged the government action before the Supreme Court, which is expected to announce its verdict this month.
[...]
On May 4, Chaudhry drew a crowd of more than 20,000 when he traveled to Lahore for a similar rally.


What would a Pakistan without Musharraf be like?
I suppose it depends on the circumstances.. ousted, killed, etc..
Would a similar military leader be installed?
