Students at an Islamic madrassa burn thousands of movie DVDs, videos and music CDs, April 6, 2007, at the Lal Mosque in Islamabad, Pakistan. The event, reminiscent of the early days of the Taliban in Afghanistan, took place within two kilometers of the Pakistani presidential palace, as well as the heavily-fortified U.S. Embassy. Clerics at the mosque, known as the most radical in Islamabad, maintained that movies and music are un-Islamic.
