Red Mosque army raid

Australian Broadcasting Corporation reported "The military action on the Red Mosque is causing hatred in the hearts of Muslims in Pakistan," former parliamentarian Hafiz Fazal Mohammad told hundreds marching in the south-western city of Quetta, near the Afghan border.
Think what moderate and secular Pakistanis felt when radicals from the Red Mosque blew up stores selling videos and CDs must have thought.
.... "The Red Mosque has been turned into pool of blood of innocent Muslims," Anwarul Haq Haqqani, a local leader of religious party Tahafuz Khatam-e-Nabowat Pakistan, said.
Radicals took over the mosque and were brainwashing children to become suicide bombers. Are they the innocent Muslims you speak of.
"This was a barbaric action."
Taking over the mosque, or freeing it.
.... "This was genocide, hundreds of innocent women and children died,"
Genocide is the systematic and planned extermination of an entire national, racial, political, or ethnic group, not something that kills a few hundred in a military action to remove some radicals that took over a house of worship.
cleric Mohammad Saeed, the head of Jamaat-ud-Dawa, the political wing of the banned Kashmiri militant group Laskhar-e-Taiba, said. "It is state terrorism, it is extreme brutality and those who killed the innocent will have a horrible fate," Saeed said.
According to Quran 4.93 "If a man kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell, to abide therein (For ever): And the wrath and the curse of Allah are upon him, and a dreadful penalty is prepared for him." That may apply to the soldiers, but it may also apply to the people the radicals killed trying to enforce their version of Shraia Law.
