Clashes at Pakistan mosque leave 5 dead
By SADAQAT JAN, Associated Press Writer 1 hour, 4 minutes ago

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - Security forces clashed with militants Tuesday outside a radical mosque where students have carried out a string of kidnappings of police officers and alleged prostitutes, killing at least five people, officials said.

The battle marked a major escalation in a standoff at the Lal Masjid, or Red Mosque, whose clerics have challenged the military-led government by mounting a vigilante anti-vice campaign in the Pakistani capital of Islamabad.

Doctors at two hospitals said the five dead included two policemen, one soldier, a militant and a civilian. However, clerics at the mosque claimed that 10 of their supporters died, according to a lawmaker sent to mediate.

The trouble began when student followers of the mosque, including young men with guns and dozens of women wearing black burqas, rushed toward a nearby police checkpoint. Police and paramilitary soldiers fired tear gas and, as the students retreated, an Associated Press photographer saw at least four students, some of them masked, fire shots toward security forces.

Gunfire was also heard from the police position.

A man used the mosque's loudspeakers to order suicide bombers to get into position. "They have attacked our mosque, the time for sacrifice has come," the speaker said.

The students later pelted two government buildings, including the Ministry of Environment, with rocks and set them ablaze, and torched a dozen cars in the ministry's lot.

Hours after the clashes, dozens of students were patrolling the area around the mosque, some carrying gas masks, gasoline-filled bottles and Molotov cocktails. About a dozen were armed with guns, including AK-47 assault rifles.

Security forces cordoned off the area with barbed wire and checkpoints and continued to fire tear gas at demonstrators from a distance. Shops in the area were shuttered.

Deputy Interior Minister Zafar Warriach said officials were in touch with the mosque administration to try to defuse the situation. "Despite provocation from the Lal Masjid, we are not using force," Warriach said on state-run Pakistan Television.

However, Warriach said it was the duty of the government to protect the life and property of its citizens, and "we will do it."

Abdul Rashid Ghazi, the mosque's deputy leader, said the security forces sparked the battle by erecting barricades near the mosque. "The government is to be blamed for it," he said.

Shah Abdul Aziz, a lawmaker for a hard-line religious party who rushed to the mosque to mediate the dispute, said both sides had agreed to a cease-fire. But the shooting continued after he left.

Doctors at various hospitals said they had admitted about 100 people with injuries. Most were suffering from the effects of tear gas, but they also included several students both male and female with bullet wounds, the medics said. Witnesses said a reporter and cameraman were caught in the crossfire and taken to a hospital with bullet wounds.

At loggerheads with authorities over a land dispute, clerics from the mosque in January sent female seminary students to occupy a municipal children's library. They raised the stakes further by kidnapping a Pakistani woman they accused of running a brothel and holding her for three days in what they said was an attempt to impose a harsh interpretation of Islamic law, or Shariah.(your future...)

Last month, they seized seven policemen to press for the release of students detained by authorities for threatening the owners of music stores. The officers were released after authorities brought thousands of police into the capital.

In late June, the students briefly kidnapped nine people including several Chinese nationals from a massage parlor in an upscale neighborhood in the capital. Abdul Rashid Ghazi, one of two brothers who run the mosque, said the abductees were "spreading obscenity" and "running a brothel in the cover of a massage parlor."

President Gen. Pervez Musharraf said last week that he was ready to raid the mosque, but warned that suicide bombers from a militant group linked to al-Qaida had slipped into the facility.
Just another example of a peacefull movement within the Muslim community.

Land of peace?! Land of peace you say, this brings back memories to peaceful ones' mind and soul...ah, yes, this is where i reside, this is where i am from and this is where all is bliss.

But remember everyone, these muslims we see causing havoc to our wonderful planet are merely the minority of muslims, the majority of all muslims are not barbarians and murderers, i say this because when we see murders whether black or white, is it fair to say all black people are murderers when we quite clearly know that is not true? Vice versa in the case of white people, asian, etc. It is the minority and lets not forget that, lets not allow those who are unpeaceful make those peaceful muslim live in a land of ignorance.

Peace and love

These people are animals. Plain and simple.

They are fighting for something imaginary that was used to explain why the sun rises and sets and where babies come from, before science was available.

Religion is a thing of the past. These people are insane. Them and their flying spaghetti monster.

The keyword is 'radical'. Are you people truly that stupid that you can't understand that?

We didn't beat Japan by picking and choosing who the good Japanese were., we nuked a city..two even. If we don't go balls out and keep worrying about what CNN says, we'll be stuck where we are when our kids are our age. People will keep dying.

While you make a great point about how the WWII situation was handled, things are different now. It isn't so much as worrying about what CNN says, as it is about starting WWIII...and more countries than just the US have nukes this time...

We probably wont be there when our kids are our age, if the media keeps putting the heat on the politics it will end like Vietnam. People will be so far against it that the only choice for the politicians will be to pull out. It seems that is what most are going for anyway with the protests and bad media rep.

After Vietnam, the Khmer Rouge slaughtered somewhere between 1.5 - 3 million people. The middle east will be much, much worse. Expect somewhere in the 10 million range. Yeah for protestors and bad media!!!
