Nazir-Ali: Pakistan 'has been Talibanised'

The Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams has been extremely critical of Pakistan's government for not protecting Christians in the country.

Writing in the Times newspaper he said Pakistan had "taken a further step down the catastrophic road" towards the breakdown of legal and political order following the murder of Christian politician Shahbaz Bhatti.

Former Bishop of Rochester the Rt Revd Michael Nazir Ali and Pakistan's High Commissioner to the UK Wajid Shamsul Hasan debate the power struggle in the country between liberals and religious hard-liners.
