Among the Believers

Synopsis
Firebrand cleric Abdul Aziz Ghazi, an ISIS supporter and Taliban ally, is waging jihad against the Pakistani government with the aim of imposing Shariah law. His primary weapon is his expanding network of Islamic seminaries for children as young as four. This documentary- ‘alarming...illuminating’ (BBC)- follows Aziz’s personal quest, and charts the lives of two of his teenage students who are pawns in his ideological war.
