10,000 Moderate Muslims Protest Islamic Extremism
Tens of thousands of people have protested in the Pakistani city of Karachi against a radical mosque and its religious schools in Islamabad.
The chief cleric of the Lal Masjid (Red Mosque), Abdul Aziz, had announced a Taleban-style Islamic court would be set up to curb “vulgar” activities.
He also gave the government a month to close video shops and brothels.
The protest organisers, the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), branded the mosque “religious terrorists”.
Slowly but surely, Islam will reform. But we must ask ourselves is our foreign policy helping that reformation or hurting it? Is it creating a climate that breeds more extremists or hinders them? And if not, how can we reform our own policies?
