Ch. Nisar failed to present facts about misuse of blasphemy laws in Senate of Pakistan


Karachi: February 2, 2017. (PCP) The Central Secretariat of Pakistan Christian Congress PCC in a press note have issued a statement of Dr. Nazir S Bhatti, President of PCC to express concern on facts presented by Interior Minister of Pakistan Ch. Nisar Ali in Senate of Pakistan that Blasphemy laws have not targeted Christians and other religious minorities but Muslims.
Responding to question in Senator Begum Hasnain in Senate of Pakistan Ch. Nisar refrain from presenting data of violence on pretext to blasphemy laws in Punjab Province of Pakistan where it is extensively used on petty issues and to settle scores against Christians.
According Reuters, recently a statement was issued by Senator Farhat Ullah Babar saying that Senate’s committee on Human Rights was all set to take up debate on the inevitable issues of how to prevent the misuse of blasphemy laws in the country. He stated that Senate’s Committee will start discussions on blasphemy laws soon.
Senator Farhat said that this discussion will be centered on the recommendations contained in a report which is 24 years old. He further asserted that this will be the first time ever, when a parliamentary body will be considering a formal proposal on how to prevent the misuse of the blasphemy laws.
A Pakistani Senate committee is set to debate how to prevent the country's blasphemy laws being applied unfairly, despite opposition from religious conservatives who support legislation that carries a mandatory death penalty for insulting Islam.
Whenever, political forces intend to stop misuse of blasphemy laws then organs of powerful establishment of Pakistan like Ch. Nisar Ali are pushed forward to protect controversial blasphemy laws which were introduced with capital punishment by a Military Dictator General Zia-Ul-Haq.
Dr. Nazir Bhatti added “blasphemy laws are misused in Pakistan by Muslim majority to settle scores and punish religious minorities but when it is used against Muslims then Islamic Scholars come to rescue Muslims as they did Tanveer Jamshed and Ms. Lodhi”
“Christian mother of five Asia Bibi is sentenced to death on charges of blasphemy and she have publically denied defiling name of Holy Prophet of Muslims but still she is behind bars and none of Muslim scholar speaks in her innocence” said Nazir Bhatti
On February 1, 2017, Interior Minister of Pakistan Ch. Nisar Ali commenting on registration of blasphemy cases against Muslim missing bloggers that how case can be registration without his acknowledgment but he never care when blasphemy case was registered against Christians in Punjab nor he took note of killing of Christians and attack on Christian life and property or burning them alive.
Same day, many famous Muslim religious leaders appeared on Geo TV program Ajj Khanzada Ke Sath and talked about misuse of blasphemy laws on blasphemy laws against Muslim bloggers but they never uttered a word when blasphemy law misused against Christian men and women.
Dr. Nazir Bhatti appealed Senate of Pakistan to move forward to stop misuse of blasphemy laws in Pakistan against Christians and other religious minorities.
