Hard-liners threaten Pakistan's Sufis

Kim Ghattas reports from Bhit Shah, south Pakistan, on the threat to Sufism from Islamic hard-liners.

For centuries Pakistan was the land of Sufism, a tolerant, mystical practice of Islam, with hypnotic rituals.

It still has millions of followers, but with the spread of hard-line Islam, Sufism has been in retreat.

Kim Ghattas reports from Bhit Shah, a small town in the south of Pakistan.
