Shahbaz’ death is a seed for peace: Paul Bhatti

Paul Bhatti lately got a letter from the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, admonition him that he would go through the same consequences as his brother if he did not end following justice. Other lawyers and witnesses involved in Shahbaz’s case are also receiving continuous death threats.

Paul Bhatti was residing in Italy when Shahbaz was executed on March 2nd, 2011, but rapidly returned back to his home country to take over the headship of the All-Pakistan Minorities’ Alliance, which was founded by his late brother.

“In this situation of instability in Pakistan the minorities suffer more, especially the Christian minority, which belongs to the poorest sector of Pakistan,” Paul explains.
