In the latest move of the radical madrassah in downtown Islamabad,Â Jamia Hafsa / LalÂ Masjid,Â they have issued a Fatwah against the female minister of Tourism for Pakistan, Nilofar Bahktiar. Official government reaction is that they are not going to confront directly:
The official reaction to Sundayâ€™s decree came from Minister of State for Health Shahnaz Sheikh who said Darul Afta had no authority to issue a decree against anyone. â€œThese people are misinterpreting Islam and we strongly condemn this act,â€ she added.
It is also apparent theÂ mufti of the madrassahÂ are holding some of the children in the Madrassah hostage from the parent’s complaints. Satellite recon shows armed men in the madrassah, denoted as “wanted criminals”… which probablyÂ really meansÂ “known Taliban or Al Qaeda Terrorists”.
