Washington,
Jan 21: 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 Free
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.”
