What happens when fundamentalists get too much power, via the BBC:

Anger at Pakistan burka play ban

The head of a Pakistani theatre company whose play about burkas was banned by the government has said that she is hurt and astonished by the decision.

The government banned the play because it said that it made "unacceptable fun" out of Pakistani culture.

Madeeha Gauhar, head of the Ajoka Theatre group, said that there was nothing offensive in the production against Islam or any other religion.

She said that she was being pulled up for "promoting moderation".

Unacceptable Fun-damenalists.
