Pakistan: Showdown at the Red Mosque

Red Mosque: ‘High Value- Terrorists’ hide behind Brainwashed Children who plead to die as martyrs

Many of those inside the mosque compound are women and girls, and female students were among those led away.

In their standoff with the Pakistani government, the depraved holy warriors of the Red Mosque in Islamabad have surrounded themselves with children: Brainwashed children plead to die as martyrs in Red Mosque siege.

SAIMA KHAN wants to die a martyr. Life is transient, she told her father in a telephone call last week, and the real glory is to sacrifice it for Allah. Her statement would be alarming at any age, but Saima is only 10.

As she spoke, rifle shots rang out, the acrid smell of tear gas drifted over Islamabad and hundreds of troops surrounded the pro-Taliban Red Mosque, a religious school complex in the heart of Pakistan’s capital where Saima was among hundreds of children being held as virtual hostages in a stand-off between militants and the government.

Saima and her 14-year-old sister, Asma, were embroiled in a struggle for the soul of Pakistan in which up to 70 militants died last week and more than 100 were injured, according to mosque officials.

Holed up inside the complex behind the lines of troops and razor wire, the children – many of them girls whose families had sent them to the mosque to receive a strict Islamic education – repeatedly rejected relatives’ entreaties to leave before a threatened army onslaught.

There was evidence that many had been brainwashed into a cult of martyrdom, and the authorities feared last night that some were being prepared to be suicide bombers. In barely eight weeks, Saima had been transformed from a religious but fun-loving girl to a jihadi, grimly craving martyrdom.

ISLAMABAD: Eight “high value terrorists” wanted by Pakistan and other countries are holed up inside Lal Masjid, while another was killed by security forces in the ongoing operation, Religious Affairs Minister Ejazul Haq said on Sunday.


“Nine suspected terrorists said to be far more dangerous and harmful than Al Qaeda and Taliban operatives were hiding inside the mosque compound,” Haq told a press conference here.
He refused to reveal the identities of these militants.

* Wow!

“Nine suspected terrorists said to be far more dangerous and harmful than Al Qaeda and Taliban” – Sounds like they discovered a new species of Zombies…!

The mosque’s head cleric Maulana Abdul Aziz – who was seized as he tried to leave the building wearing a burka – said nearly 1,000 people – some armed – were still holed up inside.

Lal Masjid Update. “Eight top terrorists inside Lal Masjid,” from the Daily Times:

ISLAMABAD: Eight “high value terrorists” wanted by Pakistan and other countries are holed up inside Lal Masjid, while another was killed by security forces in the ongoing operation, Religious Affairs Minister Ejazul Haq said on Sunday.
“Nine suspected terrorists said to be far more dangerous and harmful than Al Qaeda and Taliban operatives were hiding inside the mosque compound,” Haq told a press conference here. He refused to reveal the identities of these militants.

???????? Now, why would he do that?

He said that security forces killed one of these suspected terrorists inside Lal Masjid on the second day of the ongoing operation. He was the mastermind of the failed suicide attack on Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz in Attock in 2005, he said.
Haq said that the militants and not Abdul Rashid Ghazi, Lal Masjid’s deputy chief cleric, were controlling the mosque. “The militants are holding children and Ghazi hostage,” he said. He said that of those who had surrendered to the security forces, three girl students were still unclaimed. They were being kept at the Pakistan Sports Complex.

A curious and telling choice of words. In addition, Religious Affairs Minister Haq’s claim that Ghazi is a hostage seems highly unlikely, unless, of course, he was prevented from following in his brother’s footsteps and trying to escape in a burqa. Haq and many others may also be in denial that the problem could have roots in Pakistan, rather than being the work of outsiders.

  1. This is sick. Only extremists like this would believe that it is ok for children to die like this. It doesn’t even fit their own rules of taking infidels with you.

    What is the point of it? Do they expect respect for this.

    If some of the agencies of the UN etc said something about extreme child abuse I would be impressed. I know they are not going to do it.
    So that makes them accomplices after the fact, IMHO.

    UNICEF where are you now? Too scared to do anything.

  2. mullah cimoc say this a perfectly good example of the cia’s domination of pakistan.

    please scan: inside the company, a cia diary by phillip agee for an introductory course in subversion of nations, except the satanic forces are even more skilled now.

    the usa is self destructing both psychologically and physically as the women of the ameriki becomes whores taking the LBT (low back tattoo) and making the sex with every man, while killing their children through mass abortions.

    ameriki’s son is now the gay homosexual, to the pride of his divorced and sexually diseased parents.

    fear not my friends as the wicked always get their reward. Musharaff will die the death of Hezekiah, his organs rotting from the inside out. It will not be pleasant. His family will be exterminated to the fourth degree of blood relations. this to include even the second cousin.

  3. BTW, this respected Imam was not just wearing the burqa as he/she waltzed out of the Red mosque, but also took the pains to step in high heels.

    So let us not be too hard on this guy. He is trying hard to be cool.
