Shamim Masih sent an update on the murder of Handery Masih who was killed by his own bodyguard. This update pertains to Christians in Pakistan protesting the murder. In a large part I am certain the protest is happening because the Muslim police in Pakistan tend to ignore crimes against Christians.

Christians Staged Protest against the Killing of Christian MPA

ISLAMABAD: Christian community staged a protest against the brutal killing of a minority Member of the Provisional Assembly (MPA) in front of National Press Club, Islamabad.

 

According to details, Samuel Yaqoob, a human right activist led a protest against the killing of the minority MPA in front of National Press Club, Islamabad. Talking to the media he said that since the PML (N) is in power, Pakistani minorities [live] under a threat, they feel unsafe under this government.   Joseph Colony and Gojra culprits are still rooming about [in Christian minds]. Now since the PML (N) is ruling the party and a Christian MPA is killed right under the nose of the Baluchistan government, [Samuel Yaqoob has] demanded the government to take the necessary measures to protect Pakistani Christians. A constitution of Pakistan gives equal rights to minorities but this [has not and] is not implemented. Last time, the government announces a 5% quota for the religious minorities [to have representation] but practically it is not implemented, he added.

 

Handery Masih, a member of the Baluchistan Assembly, was shot dead in Quetta on Saturday. Political leaders including Khursheed Shah and Shahbaz Sharif chief minister Punjab, strongly condemned Handery’s assassination. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has earlier strongly condemned the murder and ordered the Baluchistan government to take strict action against the culprits.

 

It is a common practice in Pakistan that commercial activities around the country come to a standstill [gripped with] fear and tension, but since a minority MPA [has been] killed, no major protest was observed in the country. [This] shows that the Christian community is divided into small groups. Until they join hands together, they cannot achieve anything like rights and equality. 

 

Be Blessed,

Shamim Masih
