Pakistanti Minister Martyred for defending Christianityby Aimee Herd : Mar 3, 2011 : Michelle A. Vu – Christian Post

“I am mindful that in the struggle to protect the religious freedom, the rights of minorities…I can be assassinated. I can be killed. But I will continue to follow the principles that I believe. I will continue to raise the voice of the voiceless. And I will not feel fear because of these threats because I follow Jesus Christ who has given His own life for us….” –Shahbaz Bhatti

The Pakistani Minister for Minorities, Shahbaz Bhatti—who worked tirelessly on behalf of Christians and minorities in Pakistan, to give them a voice and try to gain their protection—was gunned down reportedly by the Taliban, on Wednesday, March 2nd. (Photo: Reuters/Faisal Mahmood)

Perhaps he somehow knew something might happen that day since he told his security guards—who usually travel with him—to stay home.

Bhatti had indeed been receiving death threats, according to a Christian Post interview, after speaking out against Pakistan’s blasphemy laws which had been used as the basis for the arrest of Asia Bibi, a Christian mother of five.

Bibi is the first woman to be condemned to death under the law, and Bhatti was working hard to have her released.

“I want to make it clear that I am mindful that in the struggle to protect the religious freedom, the rights of minorities, and to raise the voice against the blasphemy law, I can be assassinated. I can be killed,” admitted Bhatti in the CP interview.

“But I will continue to follow the principles that I believe,” he said. “I will continue to raise the voice of the voiceless. And I will not feel fear because of these threats because I follow Jesus Christ who has given His own life for us. So as a follower of Christ, my destiny is to speak up for those who cannot speak up for themselves.”

BCN urges our readers to be praying for Pakistan, and fellow Believers there; comfort for Shahbaz Bhatti’s family, and for God to raise up another voice for the voiceless.

    What amazing courage Shahbaz Bhatti demonstrated. And he paid the ultimate sacrifice. To risk his life so other Christians have freedom to practice their faith and be able to share the gospel. If only we could have such faith.
