The Islamic Republic of Pakistan and the Taliban

Here is a very good video about the recent fighting in Pakistan and the rise of the Taliban there. It talks about the Madrassa schools which are apparently tolerated by the Pakistani government and are teaching extremist Islamic law to the children and turning them into Taliban. Martydom is taught as a blessing.

Coming to the end of her bleak journey, Obaid-Chinoy reminds us that there are 80 million children in Pakistan, many of them living in poverty. If the militants continue to expand their war and to recruit children freely, as they do now, then Pakistan may soon belong to them.
