Remember that picture from a few days ago of Pakistani terror-supporters giving alms for jihad? In the same city, a "hardliner" Islamic cleric and his band of AK-lugging thugs have taken a group of Pakistani security forces hostage. In response, the Pakistani government has been increasing the number of troops it sends into the area, in an attempt to gain control over some of the lawlessness they're currently experiencing. As if on cue, students from every madrassa in the area have been bussed in to protest against this outrageous show of lawfulness. So what does our ever-helpful press do?
Yeah, you guessed it. Bring on the ouuuuutrage:
See-also:Pakistan has a serious problem with its system of madrassa education. Students who go through these schools are radicalised to a remarkable degree, and often end up aligning themselves with radical, anti-Pakistani clerics bent on creating yet another shari'a state in the region. These schools are funded outright by the Saudi Arabian government, and tend to answer to no amount of oversight from the Pakistani state. (Of course, it goes without saying that the radicals who cynically use these students wouldn't have so much of an interest in Pakistan if it weren't for the fact that Pakistan is a nuclear state... Yeah, thanks for all the help with that, Bill C.)
