1. Pakistan: Radical cleric returns to Red Mosque ( Pak supreme court releases him ) I'm sure he signed
a waiver not to resort to violence ever again though....

He had been accused of inciting the bloody siege at Islamabad's Red Mosque and seminary in July 2007.Pakistani authorities had filed 27 criminal cases against the cleric, shortly before military commandos stormed the Red Mosque to end the standoff with his armed students in July 2007 (photo).

The operation left more than 100 people dead, including about a dozen security personnel. His brother Abdul Rasheed Ghazi, his mother and dozens of students were among those killed.
Maulana Abdul Aziz was arrested as he tried to flee the mosque dressed in a woman's burqa. He has been detained under house arrest in the garrison city of Rawalpindi.

This marks the defeat of state terrorism and today we would say the prayer behind Maulana Abdul Aziz,"

" I remember that several years ago I met (militant leader) Maulana Sufi Mohammad when he initiated the movement for the enforcement of Islamic laws in Malakand division. He survived imprisonment and today he and his cause are victorious and Sharia law has been enforced in Swat.

"Maulana Abdul Aziz also raised the flag of Islam in Pakistan and I can see that his cause will be victorious one day,


The first Friday prayers since the release of Maulana Abdul Aziz are also expected to attract a historic crowd in the heart of the Pakistani capital.

"The court has observed that there was no evidence against Maulana Abdul Aziz in this case that could prevent his release on bail," Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui said.

The court ruling followed a petition filed by Aziz challenging a lower court ruling in relation to regarding the illegal occupation of a library adjacent to the mosque.

The supreme court knows that Friday is only a few hours away ...... I wonder if the cleric will give a real hell fire and brimestone screed or voice "comming together" rant from the bully pulpit

stand bye ;) :popcorn:

the hatchet is going to get burried
