Saturday the 14th - INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN VOICE - Free Joomla 3.2 Templates

Friends,

Today we want to remember a great hero who sacrificed his life for the betterment of Pakistan. He was champion of human rights, democracy and religious freedom.

Mr. Salman Taseer, Former governor of Punjab, Pakistan, stood up against the victimization and discrimination facing the religious minorities of Pakistan. He presented the name of Pakistan in the world as a tolerant society; we should take his progressive thought forward.

He was also a best friend of Martyr Shahbaz Bhatti who he was standing firmly with to reform the Blasphemy Laws to protect the peoples form its misuse.

He was a great advocate especially for Asia Bibi who is still serving a life sentence in prison. At the day of remembrance of Mr. Salman Taseer we demand to government of Pakistan to release the Asia Bibi from prison.

We want to remember Salman Taseer's sacrifice, bravery and commitment to our motherland. May we continue to learn from his example.

Peter Bhatti
