Speaking to reporters in Rome, Paul Bhatti said his family had forgiven Shahbaz’s assassins, “because our faith teaches us to do this. Our brother Shahbaz was a Christian and the Christian faith tells us to forgive.”
The brother participated in a conference sponsored by the Community of Sant’Egidio, a Rome-based Catholic lay organisation active in international affairs. The conference was designed as a memorial to Shahbaz Bhatti and as a way to encourage the continuation of his mission of promoting interreligious dialogue in Pakistan.
Again, we can see the difference between Christian martyrs and Islamist “martyrs-suicide bombers”…
