In Pictures: Sheikh Zakzaky Followers Voice Solidarity With Indian Muslims

Followers of leader of Islamic movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky held a rally to voice solidarity with India’s Muslims.

The rally was held in the city of Kano on Friday shortly after Juma'ar prayer.

The demonstrators chanted slogans condemning the recent anti-Muslim violence in Delhi and other parts of India.

If you can recalled, violence erupted in the Indian capital last Monday, leading to a three-day-long rampage, with Hindu mobs attacking Muslim homes, shops and mosques.

The attacks were carried out on protesters, who have been rallying against a new citizenship law, after the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Kapil Mishra threatened peaceful sit-ins would be removed from the streets.

The violence in Delhi killed at least 50 people, and injured hundreds.
