Backlash Against Sharia Law in Pakistan

As the government offensive in the Swat Valley heats up, there may be an erosion of support for Sharia law and Islamist governance that once existed throughout Pakistan. The Pakistani legal system reported was slow, inefficient, and corrupt, giving people reason to reach out for an Islamist alternative.

But that alternative did not work out quite as well as promised. Now Pakistan is in a fight for its life and its identity.

MSNBC's web site carried this article, originally published in the Washington Post. on changing public attitudes in Pakistan toward the "Talebanization" of the country. It is well worth reading.
