Mosque stormed in Pakistan

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. That'll learn 'em.
  2. Even largly Mulsim countries don't want Shari Law.

    Way to go fellas.
  3. Not a headline we're likely to see in the UK?
  4. They already have sharia law.

    They just don't want another bunch of nutters taking over their exclusive little domain
  5. Actually, they don't. They have a legal system with an Islamic bent, but it's not Sharia. I was surprised to learn that every time there's been a free election, Pakistanis have overwhelmingly rejected Islamic parties and voted for secular types.

    The Army has always been fanatically anti-Islamist and hasn't been shy about waving the big stick when allowed. 8 dead in this affair is small beer compared to operations in Waziristan over the last couple of years.
