Underground militant organisation Ghazi Abdul Rashid Shaheed Brigade (GARSB) has threatened video shops owners in Quetta (Pakistan) to quit their business or “face suicide attacks”. “All music centre owners, cable operators and cinema owners should immediately quit their businesses and seek Allah’s forgiveness otherwise such individuals will be killed and suicide attacks will be carried out against them,” reads the GARSB’s recent warning. The organisation, named after Islamabad’s Red Mosque’s slain prayer leader Ghazi Abdul Rashid, has shocked the entertainment industry in Quetta following the distribution of the threatening pamphlets. The GARSB views all forms of entertainment as ‘un-Islamic’.
All forms of entertainment? How enlightened!
