Bhatti’s brother: “We have forgiven our brother’s killers”

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”…
