- Zeinab Badawi
Duration: 30 minutes
When radical reformist cleric Tahir-ul-Qadri returned to his native Pakistan from Canada last December, he promised a million-strong march on parliament to force out the government and bring in electoral reform. In the event, the authorities say only tens of thousands of protesters turned out, and just four days into the march he made a deal with the government. Is his a wise voice to be heeded both in Pakistan and further beyond in the Muslim world? Or is he an out of touch, unrealistic opportunist, seeking power and influence, as his critics claim?
