Blood traders are trying to keep me away from Shazia Murder case. Bishop Timotheus Nasir
17 Feb 2010
Lahore: February 17, 2010. (PCP) Bishop Timotheus Nasir expressed disappointment on handling of Shazia murder case by some Christian forces in Pakistan
and termed them as traders of “Blood of poor Christians”
The Pakistan Christian Congress PCC had appealed to honorable Bishop T. Nasir on February 9, 2010, to meet family of 12 years old Christian girl Shazia who was murdered by his influential Muslim employer in Lahore while PCC was not satisfied on role of CLAAS and NCJP in court proceedings of victim.
Bishop Timotheus Nasir who is also Principal of Faith Theological Seminary Gujranwala, confirmed PCC that he will get medical reports of Shazia to ensure justice.
Pakistan Christian Post PCP in covering Shazia case expressed fear that some elements can damage campaign for justice to poor victim Shazia which are issuing statements as “Catholic Girl Shazia” “Catholic Federal Minister Shabaz Bhatti” “Catholic Punjab Minister Michael Kamran” “Catholic Human Right Commission NCJP” “Catholic Legal Aid CLAAS” to bag credit.
On February 13, 2010, accused Mohammad Naeem was released on bail by session court on grounds of postmortem reports which declared cause of death “Skin infection” not rape-killing.
Bishop Nasir engaged senior advocates to plead Shazia murder case but CLAAS and NCJP insisted to lead case but failed to produced their legal team in proceedings of case in relevant courts.
Today, Bishop Timotheus Nasir told PCC in grief “I failed in Shazia case to provide any legal assistance when Catholic Church blocked our way ahead”
Bishop Nasir added “The traders of Christian blood are not interested in Shazia's murder case and they are trying to keep any one out who really cares. I may be wrong but the Roman Catholics have never cooperated“
“In case of Bishop John Joseph murder I proved that it was a murder yet they hushed up the case” told Bishop Nasir
He further said “I think I should rest now and let Roman Catholics handle their own affairs”
