Nazir Bhatti said “ Shahbaz Bhatti announced in 2009, to revise blasphemy law via parliament in January 2010, but now he extend it to end of this year which creates doubts that he will never present revision legislation ever”
“A Catholic Federal Minister who can not ensure justice for housemaid 12 years Christian girl Shazia killed by his Muslim employer how he can be sincere to millions of Pakistani Catholics who have been victims of violence on pretext to blasphemy law” added Nazir S Bhatt

“I urge International Media and Websites of Churches not to title Shahbaz Bhatti “A Catholic Christian” or “Representative of Pakistani Christians” because Christians have not elected Shahbaz Bhatti by their votes but he is selected by Muslim political party named Pakistan Peoples Party PPP and imposed on Christians for vested interests” said Nazir Bhatti
