Holding banners, demonstrators from Uttar Pradesh's Azamgarh District presented a memorandum to Uttar Pradesh Governor T V Rajeshwar.
They refused to meet Chief Minister Mayawati, accusing her of targeting innocent community members.
"We presented a memorandum to the Governor and don't want to meet the chief minister," said Azhar Madani, a Muslim cleric.
In the wake of Mumbai attacks some localised Islamist groups claimed responsibility.
This acknowledgment has led the community to believe that they are being unfairly targeted.
