A group of Indonesian Muslims and Christians rally at a Jakarta traffic roundabout on September 8, 2010 to denounce the plans to burn the Quran by a U.S. evangelical church. The pastor of the Dove World Outreach Center insisted his plans for a mass torching of the Quran to mark the anniversary of the September 11 attacks, would go ahead after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton condemned the "disgraceful" burning ceremony in Florida. Indonesia is the world's largest Muslim majority country. The placard at left reads: "If the Quran burning takes place, America has failed as a champion of democracy."
