In the wake of a deadly attack on children, ordinary Pakistanis are joining an online movement.

Has the killing of over 130 schoolchildren in Peshawar been a turning point in Pakistan?

In a country where it is dangerous to confront extremism, ordinary Pakistanis are showing their faces and posting videos calling for the arrest of a controversial Islamic cleric, who played no role in the attacks but who is known for his sympathy with the Taliban.
