The Chairman, ICV
Dear Peter Bhatti,
Re: Resignation as President and membership of ICV
As you are aware that I have served the then CLF and now ICV with my heart and soul. Due to my prolonged and close association with Martyr Shahbaz Bhatti, who was more than my brother and my leader, I made myself fully and deeply committed to his cause and vision for our Christian brothers and sisters being persecuted owing to their faith.
After assassination of Martyr Shabaz Bhatti, I have observed that ICV in your leadership seems to be working for your personal goals and against the vision of Martyr Shabaz Bhatti for which he gave his life. As such, leaders and members of ICV were always not being consulted while making some important decisions. As President of ICV, if at any stage, I dared to bring my and other executive members' feelings about your unwarranted and undemocratic attitude that you are running the affairs of the organization for your own motives, you just turned deaf ear to our concern. You always have an attitude to keep things up to you. This has become the main cause that all main executive members have left ICV. Due to the reasons, there is no point for me also to continue as the President and member of ICV.
Keeping in view the stated circumstances, I, therefore, tender my resignation from the position of President of ICV and its membership with immediate effect.
