Pakistan: Paul Bhatti to succeed slain brother as federal minister
CWN - May 04, 2011
To the relief of Pakistan’s beleaguered Christian community, Paul Bhatti, currently special adviser to the prime minister, has been named to a cabinet-level post as federal minister for religious minorities. Bhatti, a Catholic layman, is the brother of Shabhaz Bhatti, who previously held the cabinet post and was assassinated on March 2 for his opposition to the nation’s blasphemy law.
