Basra becomes ultra-religious

14 Oct

 

In another Al Jazeera film clip on Iraq by Sebastian Walker, Basra, where UK troops are planning their withdrawals, has become an ultra conservative Shite stronghold.

In the film clip, unveiled women has become a “thing of the past”. Public parties and popular music are banned and according to a record shop owner, “music cassettes have disappeared”. Now, he sells only religious recordings now.
