Christians are not enjoying equal rights as claimed by PM Nawaz Sharif in UN speech

Philadelphia, PA: September 27, 2013. (PCP) Dr. Nazir S Bhatti, President of Pakistan Christian Congress PCC said that Christians are not enjoying equal rights in Islamic Republic of Pakistan as claimed by Prime Minister of Pakistan Mian Nawaz Sharif in his speech in General Assembly session of United Nation in New York today.

In his address to UN General Assembly, Premier Nawaz Sharif demanded rights of Palestinians and expressed concern on propaganda against Islam and Holy Quran in Western world but fell short to amend blasphemy laws which are root cause of violence against religious communities in Pakistan.

Nawaz Sharif mentioned in his speech incident of suicide bombing attack on Peshawar Church which killed 86 Christian men, women and children and injured more than hundred but not assured security measure to stop such massacre.

Nazir Bhatti said “Whenever Nawaz Sharif comes in power, the violence against Christians rises in Pakistan”

Commenting on claims of equal rights by Nawaz Sharif, PCC Chief said “Christians cannot elect their representation in parliament with their votes; Christian youth have not equal opportunities in jobs nor have in higher education admissions, if these are equal rights for minorities in Pakistan then its mockery of equal rights”

The province of Punjab which is governed by Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz Group for decade which is headed by Mian Nawaz Sharif have never ensured justice to Christians which are second biggest population of this province after Muslims weather it was incident of Gojra or Korian or Bahminwali where Muslim mob destroyed Christian properties and burnt alive Christians.

The PML (N) government in Punjab sold thousands of jobs of Christians in Lahore Metropolitan Corporation to their Turkish friends denying privatization menu and plans to expand their privatization in other cities of Punjab only jobs of Christians in this tenure instead of Privatization of sectors of these corporations which have Muslim employees.

Nazir Bhatti said that repeal of blasphemy laws and right to elect Christian representation in Local Governments, Provincial Assemblies and National Assembly with Christian votes is only step forward to equal rights for minorities in Pakistan.

PCC Chief said that Christians are being treated like 2nd class citizen in Pakistan and never enjoy equal basic democratic rights.
