The government said Tuesday it has blocked the Web site of a mosque trying to impose Taliban-style social strictures in the Pakistani capital, saying that it was inciting hate. Clerics at the Red Mosque in downtown Islamabad launched a Web site last week as part of a unilateral anti-vice campaign. One of the mosque's clerics, Abdul Rashid Ghazi, condemned the move, insisting the mosque was using the site "to preach Islam." Last week, the mosque's chief cleric said he had set up a religious court to enforce Islamic law and warned of suicide attacks if authorities ordered any raid on the mosque to stop him.
