Key Role playing leader of this Procession of Christian Community in Holland talking to PCP explained that despite all assurances and promises to them as well as at International level, Pakistani Government has once again failed to protect Christians, their lives, property, their honor and future. Against all these concocted and irresponsible role of Pakistani Government, Getting attention of International Community and showing Love and association with our Community in Pakistan, the Pakistani Christian Community in Holland with the heading line of Mr. Watson Gill, Gulbaz Fazal, Iqbal Anjum, Zaffar Maqsood, Azeem Masih, Daniel Awan, Michael William, Nadeem Dean, Moris, Parwaiz William, Kamran Gafran will take out a peaceful and silence procession in Den Haag on October 02, 2009 at 14.00 hours. Participants of the procession through Banners, Play cards and Posters will demand to stop attacking and killing innocent Christians in Pakistan. Protect their Lives and Right as they are at main role of Pakistan's past, present and future..
A Criminal Case under section 302 of Pakistan Penal Court must be registered against police officials under who’s custody a young boy of 19 years Fanish Robert put to death and not only this but the accused of this crime must be dealt according to the Law and judgments should be brought publicly and openly. Present case Registered under section 319 PPC is like a joke with family of deceased and Pakistani Christian Comunity and is same as showing a lamp to the sun. This is absolutely not right and unfair in justice and will never acceptable at any area of our demands.
Government of Pakistan must demolish all rules made in the name of Blasphemy to put innocents to grave or behind the bars for rest of their lives. We as Christian not only against these self made laws but also Political leader of present Federal and Provincial Government are also favoring for removal of such baseless Laws through very legal amendments in Constitution of Pakistan.
Organizers of this procession will hand over a Petition to the Ambassador of Pakistan at the ending point and they will leave silently with a new hopes that such attacks and actions will never re-open their wounds.
Christian Community from all over Holland and neighboring countries are expected in large number and will be welcomed with warm heart and open arms.
