Pakistani Cleric: Convert the World to Islam, by Force if Necessary

It's impossible to forget that Pakistan has 100 nuclear weapons, so if Musharraf should fall and the government is taken over by fanatics like this teacher, then we could all be in big trouble.

A FANATICAL Pakistani cleric told The Sun yesterday of his chilling dream to turn the world Muslim - by force if necessary.

Qari Hifzur Rehamn, 60, spoke openly of imposing Islamic law's stoning and beheading on Britain - as Pakistan was rocked by unrest over the assassination of Benazir Bhutto.

He warned: "We want Islamic law for all Pakistan and then the world.

"We would like to do this by preaching. But if not then we would use force."

Rehamn, 60, spoke in the Pakistani town of Kahuta as the call to prayer echoed over the dusty streets.

He is Imam of the town's fundamentalist religious school or madrassa, where classes for kids as young as nine include Jihad or Holy War and barbaric punishments.

His teachings are frightening enough. But his mosque lies in the shadow of the secret bunker where Pakistan produces nuclear weapons.

And when asked if it would be right to nuke British infidels, he laughed and answered: "Probably."

This is neither a joke nor an exaggeration. Ignore this man's words and bury your head in the sand at your own peril. Fanatics like these really do mean everything they say and will act on their beliefs if given the chance:

The spot where enriched uranium is produced for Pakistan's 80 to 120 nuclear warheads is behind razor wire less than five miles from where we spoke.

A dummy missile even sits in a children's playground in Kahuta.

Only this month, doomed opposition leader Benazir Bhutto raised the spectre of al-Qaeda-linked Islamic militants seizing control of Pakistan's nuclear warheads - and activity by radicals near Kahuta.

Despite the efforts of politicians such as her to champion democracy, the country has long been a hotbed of Islamic extremism and there is no shortage of potential martyrs.

At the Red Mosque in the heart of the capital Islamabad, Maulana Mohavya Irshad, 24, stared coldly at me. He said: "I'm ready to become a suicide bomber and lay down my life for Islam. Democracy is wrong. Earth belongs to God and God's law must be implemented.

"I hope Britain and the rest of the world will have Sharia Law this century. We will continue to sacrifice our lives to achieve this."

People just don't get it. These people are serious about their goals. We ignore their rhetoric at our own peril.

This guy isn't a fanatic. He's simply following the dictates of the Quran. Convert the world to Islam and kill anyone who refuses. Unfortunately, exposing the truth about this religion is politically incorrect. We must be convinced that it is the Religion of Peace rather that the lifestyle of killers and thieves.
