Charismatic cleric Abdul Aziz Ghazi, an ISIS supporter and Taliban ally, is waging war against the Pakistani government. His aim is to impose Sharia or Islamic law throughout the country as a model for the world. His strongest weapon in carrying out his mission is the network of schools he has created the length and breadth of Pakistan, where thousands of pupils train to become jihadists.

TALK: Ana Ballesteros (specialist in religious sectarianism, author of the book Pakistán), Hithem Abdulhaleem (psychologist expert in religious fundamentalism)
