09 Jan 2010
Karachi: January 9, 2010. (PCP) Dr. Nazir S Bhatti, Chief of Pakistan Christian Congress PCC have congratulated Mgr. Evaristo Pinto, archbishop of diocese of Karachi on commissioning of Good News TV Channel.
Good News TV is commissioned on cable and satellite by Catholic Church of Pakistan, Karachi diocese on January 8, 2009.
“It was need of time to launch any TV channel by Christians in Pakistan and Good News TV can play positive role to evangelize and offer religious program for millions of Pakistani Christians” said Nazir Bhatti
Nazir S Bhatti added “ Pakistani Christian believe that heavy funds used to launch Good News TV will be an investment to revive true spirit of Christianity among Christian believers not to promote political agenda of Pakistan Peoples Party or any other Muslim political group”
It is on record that Catholic Church of Pakistan have never sincerely served poor Christians but established magazines and Human Right Commission to propagate against “Separate Electorate” in conspiracy with Pakistan Peoples Party PPP and military ruler General Musharraf.
Pakistani Christians never demanded Joint Electorate but were enjoying Separate Electorate and electing their representatives in National Assembly of Pakistan and Provincial Assemblies.
Joint Electorate was imposed on Christians by General Pervaiz Musharraf in 2002, when right of electing Christian leaders by Christian vote was snatched and Muslim political parties were empowered to select Christians in Parliament.
The National Commission for Justice and Peace NCJP formed by Catholic Church of Pakistan was instrumented against Separate Electorate and international community was misled to favor Joint Electorate.
Nazir Bhatti said “Catholic Church stabbed in back of 20 million Pakistani Christians by spending millions of dollars to propagate against Separate Electorate and funded tours of Shahbaz Bhatti, leader of Christian Liberation Front and Pater Jacob, Secretary of NCJP to make presentations before US Human Right Commission and UN”
“I hope Good News TV will serve Christians and not used to promote political agenda of Islamic Parties” said Nazir Bhatti
It is ironic that Catholic Church of Pakistan is spending heavy amount on tours of NCJP leaders against Islamic laws but have never bothered to hire any attorney and file lawsuit to repeal blasphemy law in higher courts of Pakistan because clergy is not sincere in any practical action but cashing the issue.
