Karachi: May 7, 2013. (PCP) Dr. Nazir S Bhatti, President of Pakistan Christian Congress PCC have strongly condemned statement made in election rally in Karachi by Syed Munawar Hassan
, Ameer Jamat Islami Pakistan Ji that “Liberal must register their names in minorities voter list” when he was targeting Pakistan Peoples Party PPP, Muthida Quomi Movement MQM and Awami National Party ANP which claim them Liberals.
Nazir Bhatti clarified that Jamat Islami Ameer have insulted Christians in particular who are people of Book according to Islamic teaching but he termed them as infidels with his statement to claim that Pakistan is for Muslims only and founded for Islamic laws.
Nazir Bhatti said that Christian played positive role for creation of Pakistan during Pakistan Movement while Jamat Islami opposed formation of Pakistan and called Mohammad Ali Jinnah, Founder of Pakistan to be an infidel.
The All India Christian Association voted for Pakistan in Round Table Conference in London in 1930-1932, and voted for division of Punjab to fall in lot of Pakistan before Boundary Commission but Jamat Islami Hind was against formation of Pakistan.
The founder of Pakistan in his historic speech of August 11, 1947, in Karachi, termed Pakistan to be not a state for Muslims but country for every community living in Pakistan irrespective of any religion, cast and creed.
Dr. Bhatti said that its time that all Christians whom Jamat Islami have nominated on reserved seats in parliament for minorities may publically pull them out of that list submitted to Election Commission of Pakistan and announce to leave Jamat Islami Pakistan JIP.
Nazir Bhatti said that it is shameful for Pakistani Christians to seek nomination from Islamic Religious extremists Party Jamat Islami to reach in assembly.
The Pakistan Christian Congress PCC Chief confirmed that Pakistani Christians are boycotting election 2013 and not voting for any Muslim party.
Nazir Bhatti also expressed concern that Muslim parties’ candidates are harassing Christian voters in their constituencies to vote for them and offering cash in reward of votes also in nights.
There are 96 constituencies of National Assembly of Pakistan where Christians are balancing votes from 10,000 to 50,000 to make any candidate win.
The Christians are protesting on not allocating them Dual Voting Right that they may elect their representatives in parliament and may also vote for Muslim candidates in respective constituencies. The Christians have no right to vote for their representation but to vote for Muslims who will select their leaders in Assembly.
