The killers of Shahbaz Bhatti were captured from Islamabad who admits the crime and case is under sessions in anti-terrorist court. The last hearing held on January 22, 2014, in which Akmal Bhatti appeared as witness along with other witnesses.

On March 2, 2011, former Federal Minister for Minorities, Shahbaz Bhatti was assassinated, when he was heading for cabinet meeting.


Dr. Nazir Bhatti stated that if government gave loose or released assassins of Shahbaz Bhatti on demand of Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan’s (TTP) then Christians of Pakistan will take necessary actions.


He added “Government of Pakistan may take notice of life threats to witnesses in Shahbaz Bhatti murder case and provide them fool proof security, if government not acted accordingly then it will be meant that Pakistan administration is intentionally saving killers”


The registration of FIR was supposed to be as; Government of Pakistan V/S accused killers as in most of the  murder cases happens, the government stands as complainant; like Benazir Bhutto’s assassination case, the government is complainant and FIR is filed by government as complainant but in this incident Shahbaz Bhatti’s brother Sikander is complainant. Nazir Bhatti said “Why in Shahbaz Bhatti murder case his brother Sikander was asked to be complainant when government of Pakistan was supposed to be complainant in FIR it meant that from first day administration was not sincere to ensure justice in this brutal day light killing”


It is on the record that terrorists after assassination of Shahbaz Bhatti, scattered pamphlets on his corpse in which TTP accepted liability of assassination and terrorized to kill everyone who will insists to revoke or alteration in blasphemy laws as Shahbaz Bhatti talked about it.


Nazir Bhatti demanded security of petitioner of FIR and of all witnesses and to relocate case in any city of Sindh province of Pakistan where court proceeding may be held within jail and offender possibly punished.
