Is Pakistan Ripe for an Islamic Revolution?

Hosted by

In Pakistan's Swat Valley on Sunday, the militant Islamist leader Sufi Mohammed bluntly defied the country's secular government and its system of laws. As to Pakistan's democratic institutions, he said, “supporting an infidel system is a great sin.”  He laid out a plan to bring what he called “a complete Islamic system” for the entire country.  His speech to a crowd of thousands was carried live on TV.
