Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, also known as Ahok, has faced demonstrations
calling for his ouster amid allegations of blasphemy.
An ethnic Chinese Christian, Ahok is currently under investigation by Indonesian police
over a speech he gave in which hardline Islamists claim he insulted the Quran.
Police estimate around 200,000 people converged on Jakarta's main square Friday for noon prayers.
Islamist groups, NGOs, students and ordinary citizens came from Jakarta and other cities and towns outside the capital.
