India-Pakistan: July 19, 2004


Pakistan has failed in its efforts to control the radical madrassas  (religious schools), which are the basis of the religious political parties and  primary training and recruiting organizations for Islamic militants. The Pakistani political parties dug in their heels and refused to cooperate with the government on registering the madrassas, and refused to add non-religious subjects to the curriculum. The government believes that they can neutralize the Islamic radicals by going after the terrorists, who are unpopular inside Pakistan, because most of the victims of terrorist acts are Pakistanis.
