Six days after announcing a major crackdown against militant Islamic extremist groups in the country, Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf tried to reassure a gathering of Muslim religious leaders Friday that the move wasn't an attempt to Westernize Pakistani society. "We want progress but not Westernization," he told the meeting of clerics. Musharraf said his vision for Pakistan is neither what he termed an "ultramodern" state nor one ruled by religious extremists.
