Pakistan's Terror Central

Channel 4: Unreported World

When is a charity not a charity? Lashkar-e-Taiba, the so-called army of the righteous was responsible for the November 2008 attack on Mumbai and has been banned by the Pakistani Government as a terrorist organisation.


Yet the charitable organisation Jamaat ul-Dawa, which the UN and US both say is a front for Lashkar-e-Taiba, continues to flourish. It denies any link with terrorism, and gives reporter Evan Williams and director Will West a rare tour of its Headquarters complex. The minister of law in Punjab agrees that Jamaat ul-Dawa is not just a charity, but says popular support and its sympathisers in the military make it untouchable.
 

'Throughout the film is a growing visceral sense that something far more sinister is going on and that Williams is in danger, a stark reminder of another possible threat emerging from this corner of the world'

'...chilling'
