Indonesian Muslim women protest against cartoons

About 150 Muslim women protested on Tuesday the publication of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad and other grievances they said constituted an attack on their faith.

The women gathered at a traffic circle in downtown Jakarta close to the British Embassy.

They heard speeches against the prophet cartoons, as well as plans to launch an Indonesian version of pornographic magazine Playboy and install condom dispensing machines in towns throughout the world's most populous Muslim nation.

"Save our generation from attacks by the enemies of Islam," read a leaflet they handed out to motorists.

The cartoons of the prophet that first appeared in a Danish newspaper have generated anger and protests across Indonesia. Compared to those in Pakistan and countries in the Middle East, the demonstrations have been peaceful, reports the AP.
