Frontier post reports on the rally of Jamia Hafsa and Lal Masjid, who are declaring Taliban style Sharia court in Islamabad. They are threatening waves of suicide bombers if they are opposed, and in this step they have gone too far both with the citizens of Islamabad and with the Government.
This is jumping the shark for them, their show is over, and sometime soon the clerics leading this will get hauled up without doubt. If Musharaaf doesn’t administer it, I think the citizens of Islamabad will. It’s one thing to declare jihad in foreign countries, it’s quite another to threaten the ummah in your own country with suicide bombers.
These mad mullahs are purposefully seeking confrontation while hiding behind the female children students who are indoctrinated with false teaching. Things could get very ugly as outcome, stay tuned.
More from Frontier Post:
The administrator of the Lal Masjid, located bang in the heart of the nationâ€™s capital, Friday announced the creation of a Shariat court to curb vice and chastise the crooked involved in prostitution, gambling and other immoral activities. The mosqueâ€™s firebrand chief cleric, known for his radical Taliban-style morality drive, warned the government the use of force against the mosque administration would trigger a series of suicide attacks by seminary students. Addressing a well-attended conference on â€œEnforcement of Shariah and Azmat-i-Jihad,â€ Maulana Abdul Aziz Aziz also set the government a one-month deadline for closing down all video and music shops as well as bordellos. â€œShould the rulers fails to do the job before the deadline runs out, our male and female students themselves will swing into action to crack down on these centres of malfeasance,â€ he promised amid chants of Allah-o-Akbar from the highly responsive congregation.
I will keep a watch on this through the weekend.
