Illyasi Mosque, Abbotabad, Forbidden Pics

I only managed to capture a few pictures of this mosque since I was forbid from taking any further pictures by the caretaker.

    Frits, they are not. I came there last year and the caretaker let me took the pics. I used my manual film SLR camera then. I came back to this place hoping to capture for my digital collection. I guess they just follow orders. They are not fundamentalists.

    I was born in Abbottabad. Have been there only once in my adult life. its a pity that most mosques in Karachi that I recently took pictures of were always had their gates locked during off prayer timings.Its more to do with the current environment, that mosque administrations exercise caution to prevent any terrorist attacks. No, they are definitely not fundamentalists.
    I remember taking the picture of one particular mosque in a military area of Karachi early in the mornign and I wanted to do it quickly fearful that some armed guard would come and whisk me away thinking I was plannning an attack at a religious site.
