Exposed: Islamist influence at very highest levels of Pakistani government

1 Jan

Officials within the US & Indian governments reacted with alarm today following a meeting of top Pakistani ministers.

Up till now it had been believed that only elements within Pakistan’s intelligence service, the ISI, were affected by religious fervour, leading them to aid – some claim – the Taliban with a flow of weapons and information.

But Islamism and Islamists are growing ever bolder, and it would be wise not to underestimate just how long the reach of this ideology is, and just how religious Pakistani politicians just may be.
