Karachi: July 7, 2014. (PCP) The Central Secretariat of Pakistan Christian Congress PCC in a press note here today have expressed concern to ignore Christian and Hindu Internally Displaced People IDP,s from North Waziristan
after operation “Zarb-e-Azab” by Pakistan Armed Forces against Tehreek Talban Pakistan TTP to end terrorism.
According to Pakistan Christian Post sources, there are 65 Christian families and 15 Hindu families who have left city of MiranShah and government bases in North Waziristan and taken refuge in Panel School and John Bosco Schools of Bunnu city which are run by Church of Pakistan.
Where more than 7 million Muslim IDP,s are facilitated in government organized camps with provisions of 12 Thousand Rupees at registration and 40 Thousand as award to in month of Ramadan along with ration packages, the Christian and Hindu IDP,s have been living on donations of minorities community.
When contacted with government officials it was told to Pakistan Christian Post that Christian and Hindu IDP,s not registered themselves on border of Waziristan and Bunnu District, so, they cannot claim officially claim any benefits which Muslim IDP,s are receiving.
Dr. Nazir S Bhatti, President of Pakistan Christian Congress PCC expressed his surprise that how 65 Christian families and 15 Hindu families were not registered on checkpoint of registration when most them are employees of military facilities in North Waziristan.
Nazir Bhatti said that if Christian and Hindu families can get out of North Waziristan without registration when curfew was imposed then how we can rule out that many terrorists and TTP commanders have dodged military registration check point and entered in different cities of Pakistan.
“The Panel School and John Bosco School are under administration Church of Pakistan where 65 Christian and 15 Hindu families are living as IDP are without any government support which shows substandard behavior of government of Pakistan toward minorities and is condemnable” added Nazir Bhatti
PCC urged government of Pakistan to immediately support Christian and Hindu IDP,s like other Muslim IDP,s from North Waziristan and move them to IDP
Nazir S Bhatti warned KPK government and Government of Pakistan not to channel aid to 65 Christian and 15 Hindu IDP,s through Bishop of Church of Pakistan sitting in Peshawar because victims of Peshawar Church attack funds which were given through Bishop of Peshawar had not benefited bomb blast victims but still are under control of Church of Pakistan and no one knows where are it invested and who is enjoying those millions of Rupees.
Dr. Nazir Bhatti said that Pakistani Christian support Pakistan Armed Forces and operation “Zarb-e-Azab” operation against terrorists and prays for its success.
