"Pakistan On The Brink"

5 of 12

"The Talibanization Of Pakistan" Students from an Islamic madrassa burn thousands of movie DVDs, videos and music CDs April 6, 2007 in front of the Red Mosque in Islamabad, Pakistan. The event, reminiscent of the early days of the Taliban in Afghanistan, took place within a mile of the Pakistani Presidency as well as the heavily-fortified U.S. Embassy. Clerics at the mosque, known as the most radical in Islamabad, maintained that movies and music were un-Islamic.
