Pakistan: bishops praise threatened activist
CWN - June 07, 2012
The bishops of Pakistan have expressed “full solidarity and support” for Asma Jahangir, a human rights activist who claims that the nation’s intelligence service is plotting her assassination.
Peter Jacob, executive secretary of the bishops’ justice and peace commission, lauded Jahangir’s “commitment to freedom of expression, legality for religious minorities, democracy, and the rule of law in Pakistan.”
