Abstract
Two years ago the Red Mosque, a well-known center for radical Islamic teaching  and the ideological headquarters of radical Islamic opposition, has become the most known mosque in Islamabad. In July, 2007 islamists for the first time in history have organized an armed rebellion, the army also for the first time conducted the military operations in Islamabad, using helicopters and heavy arms. After fighting around the Red Mosque many believed that radical groups might soon capture the power in Pakistan and in such a case religious extremists would have the nuclear weapon in their hands.
