Karachi: June 16, 2010. (PCP) Dr. Nazir S Bhatti, President of Pakistan Christian Congress PCC said that Christians in Pakistan not trust in promises of Shahbaz Bhatti,

Federal Minister for Minorities that he will bring legislation to revise blasphemy law because he claimed it in 2009 also but failed to fulfill his commitment. Pakistan Christian Congress PCC announced that Blasphemy laws shall be challenged in Supreme Court of Pakistan to pray for repeal of it because it is like sword on necks of millions of Christians and other religious minorities in Pakistan.
