The density of traffic flow was caused by a series of mass demonstrations expressing opinions around the Indian Embassy building to close the slow lane on Jalan HR Rasuna Said.
A number of police officers were seen standing guard and controlling traffic to help break up the traffic jam.
The demonstration, titled Action 1706, took place around 1pm WIB before beginning Friday prayers in the congregation around the Indian Embassy.
The demonstration was a form of protest against insulting the Prophet Mohammed in India.
Legal Aid Secretary of the DPP’s Islamic Brotherhood Front, Aziz Yanuar, said the demonstration was carried out by a range of Muslim and Islamophobic communities.
