The Brown Shirts are back – this time in Pakistan’s North West Province. The Daily Telegraph has more details:

“Last Friday, the North West Frontier Province Assembly passed the Sharia (or Islamic law) bill, which would dramatically change the province’s educational, judicial and financial systems and bring them in line with fundamentalist Islamic laws. The same day, MMA supporters went on a celebratory rampage in Peshawar, the province’s capital, tearing down advertising hoardings showing women, destroying satellite cable television connections and attacking offices of foreign multinationals. The police stood quietly by, refusing to control the mobs.”
