  Musharraf cracking down on his homegrown asshats? (this week)
BBC NEWS | South Asia | Pakistan madrassa row 'resolved': "Pakistan says it has resolved a dispute with religious schools and they will now register with the government.

President Pervez Musharraf enforced his registration demand following the London bombings in July and also said all foreign students must be expelled.

The madrassas had refused to co-operate unless a demand that they disclose their funding be withdrawn.

A senior religious affairs ministry spokesman told the BBC the madrassas would not need to disclose funding.

President Pervez Musharraf says his registration policy is aimed at checking the activities of a handful of madrassas that preach hatred and extremism.

One of the London bombing suspects visited a madrassa in Lahore shortly before the attacks."
