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.

Pakistan cant afford to loose him. The hard line takes over and India will vaporize them.
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.
