Lal Masjid Fiasco

Lal Masjid

A radical cleric set up a vigilante Islamic court in Pakistan’s capital yesterday and threatened to unleash a wave of suicide bombs if the government tried to repress his Taliban-style movement. The challenge to the authority of President Pervez Musharraf, by a firebrand cleric, Maulana Abdul Aziz, came amid growing fears of what the local media has dubbed a “creeping Talibanisation” across Pakistan. “Our youths will shake their palaces with their suicide attacks,” said Maulana (Father) Aziz in a sermon delivered to thousands of his followers at Lal Masjid, or Red Mosque, in central Islamabad.- Telegraph, 07 April 2007
