Among The Believers

An intimate and shocking exploration into the spread of the radical Islamic school Red Mosque in Pakistan, which trains legions of children to devote their lives to jihad from a very young age. Charismatic cleric Abdul Aziz Ghazi, an ISIS supporter and Taliban ally, is waging jihad against the Pakistani state. His dream is to impose a strict version of Shariah law throughout the country, as a model for the world. Opposition against Aziz comes to a head in December 2014, when he insults a grieving nation by trying to justify the brutal massacre of 132 school children in Peshawar by the Taliban.
