Islamabad: August 26, 2009. (PCP) Dr. Nazir S Bhatti, Chief of Pakistan Christian Congress PCC announced to launch mass movement against government of Pakistan if blasphemy law not repealed till September 25, 2009,

which is source of violence against 20 million Christians in Pakistan and administration is not sincere to ensure safety of life and property of minorities. Nazir Bhatti said that Pakistan can not stop breeding terrorism and Islamic extremism if Article 2 of Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan of 1973, is not amended and blasphemy law not repealed because Islamic laws provide protection to radical elements. “I want to bring in notice of US and EU that billions dollar aid to Pakistan to fight against terrorism can not be a long term solution to end Talibanization in south Asia when constitution of Pakistan provides out right protection to religious extremism” said Nazir Bhatti He added “ US and EU must relate financial aid to Pakistan with constitutional reforms and abolishment of Islamic laws to block way of growing Taliban style outfits in Pakistan which shall be more dangerous than Taliban in FATA” Nazir Bhatti expressed concern on registration of cases against Christians of Gojra who were attacked and 11 were killed by Punjab Taliban. “PCC feared such cases when Punjab administration directed Gojra police to register case of rioting against 800 unknown people on burning alive Christian women and Children and setting on fire 67 homes on August 1, 2009, in an attack by Islamic fundamental elements on accusation of blasphemy law” The government of Pakistan played drama of reconciliation to protect Islamic elements who attacked Christians of village Bahamin Wala in Kasur district on July 31, 2009 and set on fire 110 Christian homes. The same act is feared to be repeated in Korian and Gojra where Christian victims shall be forced to an agreement with Muslims on registration of false cases. Such tactics by government of Pakistan are to protect Islamic militants who have influence in Muslim political groups. Nazir Bhatti demanded arrest of Muslim attackers on Christians in village Bahamin Wala, Korian and Gojra to ensure justice instead of reconciliation to save culprits. The 20 million Pakistani Christians have frequently demanded to repeal blasphemy law which is being used to kill Christians and involve them in fabricated cases by Muslim extremists since 1986. The government of Pakistan have never paid attention to repeal blasphemy laws which have forced Christians to launch a mass movement against government of Pakistan to press demand if administration fails to repeal discriminatory Islamic laws till September 25, 2009, said Nazir Bhatti in a telephonic address to PCC members and leaders gathered here in Islamabad to discuss situation of Christians after violence in Gojra by Islamic extremists. Nazir Bhatti said that All Parties Conference of Christian Organizations shall be called on September 28, 2009, to discuss future course of movement if government will not repeal blasphemy law till September 25, 2009.
