News Alert: Peter Jacob of NCJP is working for vested interests not for Pakistani Christians
09 Oct 2010
Karachi: October 8, 2010. (PCP) Pakistan Christian Congress PCC have issued a “New Alert“ about National Commission for Justice and Peace NCJP (Pakistan) Executive Secretary
Mr. Peter Jacob press releases to media outlets in Western Countries: “This person is issuing baseless information’s statements on behalf of NCJP, to damage cause of millions of Pakistani Christians”
Peter Jacob visited USA in 2009, and met with some organization regarding Education Policy of Pakistan which was not NCJP or Peter Jacob subject but reports prepared by one Pakistani Christian Professor and duly published in Pakistan Christian Post months prior to his tour.
“When I urged Peter Jacob in a meeting in Philadelphia during his USA visit in an open house that why he or NCJP not preferred to send writer of that Education Policy to plead on this important issue to make international community understand it more effectively, Peter Jacob mocked to undermine that Christian Professor and said that he writes for NCJP for small gift amounts” said Dr. Nazir S Bhatti, President of Pakistan Christian Congress PCC
Dr. Nazir S Bhatti added “ National Commission of Justice and Peace (Pakistan) is not serving poor oppressed Pakistani at large but persons like Peter Jacob are drawing huge salaries and spending millions from NCJP budget on foreign tours which is burden on institution established for persecuted Christians”
The NCJP is a silent and hidden organization in Pakistan which always avoids to raise voice for Pakistani Christian in National Print or Electronic Media of Pakistan but issues press releases to Western Christian media outlets for reasons known best to them.
There are rumors that NCJP works in collaboration with Pakistani Establishment to suppress voice of Christians and Persecution incident of Pakistani Christians but never leaves chance to issue “New Alerts” against independent Pakistani Christian news media which voluntarily is struggling to raise voice of poor Christians.
Commenting on recent “News Alert” issued by Peter Jacob, Executive Secretary of NCJP Pakistan, Dr. Nazir Bhatti said “I will appreciate Peter Jacob, if he will work for poor Pakistani Christian as volunteer and pay back all his huge payments to NCJP that same may be utilized for social welfare of poor and needy”
Dr. Nazir S Bhatti, President of Pakistan Christian Congress PCC and Editor of Pakistan Christian Post PCP clarified that volunteer correspondents of PCP are reporting incidents of Christian Persecution in Pakistan in very difficult situation and are reliable source of information while NCJP only speaks out when interests of particular group are involved unless remains silent.
Nazir Bhatti further clarified that story of “Muslim extremists murder Christian Family” was broke out by CDN on October 1, 2010, and then released by Crosswalk and other media. Pakistan Christian Post volunteer correspondent followed the leads to report it.
If CDN news story was not reliable, why Peter Jacob not informed CDN to correct the contents but Peter Jacob waited for weeks to damage credibility of Western media outlet that in future non may cover Christian Persecution in Pakistan. Is it objective of NCJP to kill voice of poor Christians and block those who raise voice? Is it on instruction of Pakistani establishment or under any hidden agenda?
Pakistan Christian Post PCP not reported incident of “attack on Gujrat Christians” but other Christian media broke this story also.
