Protestant pastor murdered in Pakistan
Catholic World News - November 18, 2011
Three Muslim men have gunned down Jameel Sawan, a Protestant pastor, in Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city.
“The murder may be motivated by religious hatred, but there is also the track of a personal vendetta, due to private matters,” said Paul Bhatti, special adviser to the prime minister for religious minority affairs and brother of slain Catholic cabinet minister Shabhaz Bhatti. “In any case it is an appalling and brutal murder. The government and the police have taken appropriate action. We appeal to everyone to keep calm and not to fuel hatred and intolerance.”
