Pakistan: Both Minister of Minorities and Punjab Governor threatened by Islamists over Asia Bibi’s release

Asia Bibi

As I have posted earlier, the Minister of Minorities is Cristian:

Pakistan’s religious parties have come down heavily against the government led by the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP). They are also critical of Punjab Governor Salman Taseer for his “unIslamic” attempts to obtain a pardon and exile for Asia Bibi in the United States. They have called for his immediate removal from office and punishment. Various Islamic organisations have held demonstrations and rallies against the government and the country’s “secular” lobby, accusing Mr Taseer of being part of an “international conspiracy” to change the blasphemy law.

Shahbaz Bhatti

…Minority Affairs Minister Shahbaz Bhatti is set to meet President Zardari today to hand him the Asia Bibi report. Bhatti denied rumours that she had already been released.

He said that the pardon should be granted very soon, adding that Asia Bibi would be at risk because extremists have threatened to kill her.

There is a shared willingness to amend it [the blasphemy law] to avoid its distorted use against minorities,” he said. “We must build a consensus in favour of its abolition, but that is not easy to do politically.”

If Ms Bibi is freed, extremists have threatened Mr Bhatti as well. “I am not afraid of these threats,” he said. “I am ready to sacrifice everything for the justice that I believe in.”

via PAKISTAN Asia Bib report to Zardari, but Islamist parties threaten Minister Bhatti – Asia News.

Well, he should be prepared for what’s coming, we should be prepared to pray and God bless us all, specially Pakistani Christians. I know that saying that is fairly rare in Europe, but these guys are threatened with death, and they really merit our support, whatever their religion.

Background:

  1. Pakistan: Christian woman sentenced to death for blasphemy.
  2. Pakistan: your signature to save Asia Bibi.
  3. Asia Bibi: Pope appeals for “full freedom“.
  4. Pakistan: Asia Bibi NOT pardoned, protests are announced in case she is.

    Everyone seems to be wondering why Muslim terrorists are so quick to commit suicide.

    Let’s see now… No Jesus, No Christmas, No television, No cheerleaders, No bikinis, No car races, No football, No soccer, No pork BBQ, No hot dogs, No burgers, No chocolate chip cookies, No lobster, No nachos, No Beer nuts, No alcohol, No Beer !!!!!!!! Rags for clothes and towels for hats. Constant wailing from the guy next-door because he’s sick and there are no doctors. Constant wailing from the guy in the tower. On your knees facing east most of the day. More than one wife. You can’t shave. Your wives can’t shave.. You can’t shower to wash off the smell of donkey cooked over burning camel dung. Your bride is picked by someone else … and she smells just like your donkey.

    Then they tell you that when you die it all gets better!
