In the news.

This morning, as my wife was driving me to work, I heard a story about Islamabad's Red Mosque being reopened for Friday prayers. It has recently been the site of a week-long standoff between the Pakistani military and the local chapter of Militant Muslims. This made me wonder why are there no militant Buddhists, or Jews, or Christians, or Hindus, or even Atheists. Why did Muslims corner the market on this?
