Dr. Nazir S Bhatti, the President of the Pakistan Christian Congress, demanded the immediate release of Asia Bibi, a Christian mother on death row for blasphemy.
7/14/2012 Pakistan (Pakistan Christian Post) – “Islamic Republic of Pakistan is a country where justice is never ensured to religious minorities” said Dr. Nazir S Bhatti, President of Pakistan Christian Congress PCC in a statement issued by Central Secretariat of PCC here today.
Nazir Bhatti expressed concern over pending of an appeal in Lahore High Court from 2 years of a Christian mother Asia Bibi, sentenced to death on accusations of blasphemy from lower court.
In Islamic Republic of Pakistan judicial activism is so high that thousands of poor Pakistani are behind bars waiting for hearing dates of their appeals in Supreme Court of Pakistan and Provincial High Courts from years.
Nazir Bhatti said “Pakistani Christian have lost their confidence in judicial system, judiciary and higher courts because it protected and released Muslim who attacked Churches, killed worshipers, burnt alive women and children, gunned down pastors, never punished Muslims who filed false blasphemy cases against Christians, never charged Muslim who enforcedly converted Christian women to Islam and gang raped Christian girls after kidnapping”
In recent polls conducted by Pakistan Christian Post, 85% voted for immediate release of Asia Bibi who is under mental stress in security cell of Seikhupura Jail on her long pending appeal in Lahore High Court.
