Faith-Based Agencies in Pakistan --
QThe Christian Scientist Monitor reports on the indispensible aid given by miltant Islamic groups to victims of an earthquake in Pakistan.

Some of these groups are the social services portions that the Pakistani government cracked down on as part of its alliance with the U.S. It is a question of whether there should be optimism that the focus of such groups will shift mainly to welfare or if these groups will get a boost in prestige allowing them to enter the political arena like Hamas did in Palestine.
