NEW DELHI - Tens of thousands of Indians waving black and white flags and chanting "Death to Bush!" rallied Wednesday in New Delhi to protest a visit by President Bush
Surindra Singh Yadav, a senior police officer in charge of crowd control, said as many as 100,000 people, most of them Muslim, had gathered in a fairground in central New Delhi ordinarily used for political rallies.

"Whether Hindu or Muslim, the people of India have gathered here to show our anger. We have only one message killer Bush go home," one of the speakers, Hindu politician Raj Babbar, told the crowd.

1. I love the fact how Bush can't go ANYWHERE
without a large group of people protesting. Love it! He will be haunted for the rest of his life and it's one of the lovely things to think about with his karma.

9. Yep
A thousand early-spring-white-cheeks welcomed him to Gothenburg. My mother flipped when she saw my little brother among the culprits on tv.

Ahh sweet memories :thumbsup:

3. I've never seen anything like it in my lifetime.
I can't think of a single leader who has been protested around the world, not one.

4. and he's worried about what kind of signal it sends throughout
the world if we don't except this UAE deal.

Indian protesters rally against U.S. President George W. Bush in New Delhi Wednesday, March 1, 2006. After a surprise stop in Afghanistan, Bush was scheduled to arrive in India Wednesday night to begin a tour of south Asia. The sign held up reads in the Hindi "Those who fight bloody wars are not our guests, they are Satan

8. They were wrong
<snip>
Police put the number of protestors at around 50,000 but organisers claimed some 300,000 people had turned up.

A smaller protest was held at the historic 17th century Jama Masjid mosque in Old Delhi, witnesses said.

"We do not want Bush here as he is the world's biggest terrorist. He has no place in the land of (freedom hero Mahatma) Gandhi," said Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind spokesman Abdul Hameed Naumani.
