Pakistan: Madrasas, Extremism & the Military
Martti Ahtisaari (ed.). In its new role as key ally in the U.S.-led war on terrorism, Pakistanís mil. govít. has toned down many policies that previously fostered militancy & religious extremism. But on a key test -- reform of Madrasas, Pakistani religious schools that breed extremism -- the mil. govít. thus far has acted weakly. Madrasas provide free religious educ., board & lodging & are essentially schools for the poor. About 1/3 of all children in Pakistan attend madrasas. These seminaries run on public philanthropy & produce indoctrinated clergymen of various Muslim sects. Chapters: background history; the madrasa boom, incl. the connection between jihad & sectarianism; madrasas under civilian rule; dealing with the jihadis, madrasa law, & much more.
