Pakistan, USA 2015
Directors: Hemal Trivedi, Mohammed Ali Naqvi

The opening sequence of a very young boy delivering a sermon with vitriolic hatred in his eyes sets the scene for this chilling recording of the spread of radical Islam in Pakistan, and the resulting clash of ideologies between moderate and fundamentalist forces.

The Red Mosque, an organisation in Pakistan, trains legions of children to devote their lives to Jihad, or holy war. With incredible access to the schools and to the movement’s charismatic leader Maulana Aziz, we see how radicalism is building up an army of thousands, as children pledge their allegiance to ISIS.

We witness the personal quest of a firebrand Pakistani cleric to impose strict sharia law throughout the country, as a model for the world.

A brave film whose makers risked death threats in order to give us a rare insight into the ideological battle shaping both modern Pakistan and the wider Muslim world.

Winner: Best International Director, Doc Edge Festival 2016
