This is a really good 4-part video of a Muslim journalist inside the Red Mosque aka Lal Masjid. From the videos you will see that the Islamic school was just like any other Islamic school in terms of education. The issue were the activism of the students, especially the women. You will also see that Maulana Ghazi wanted to surrender but Pakistan rejected that and instead went inside and murdered him and 100s of his students. Allah knows best.
